Light the Campus

trees lit outside Thwing Center

Day of Remembrance

Each year, CWRU lights a part of campus to remember community members or their loved ones who have passed away. Students, faculty and staff can submit names to be read during the ceremony. 

Light the Campus ceremony will be held in-person on Tuesday, March 2 at 5:00pm outside of KSL Oval; masking and social distancing protocols will be followed. 

In addition to lighting the trees during the ceremony, students, faculty and staff can pick-up a battery-powered light in Thwing after the ceremony to display in their office, dorm or home window throughout the month of March. If you would like a candle, please register Candles need to be picked-up in person the day of the ceremony.
