On campus, freshmen live in one of four themed residential communities, which are called Cedar, Juniper, Magnolia and Mistletoe. All students are invited to the annual SpringFest, a collection of music, carnival games and activities that is the largest student-run event on campus.
Case Western Reserve University boasts a broad range of top-rated specialty graduate programs, like its health law curriculum at the School of Law.
