Diversity Weekend takes place over CWRU's Admitted Student Program Thursday and Friday, April 16-17.

Admitted student programs are arranged conference-style, meaning students and parents will have multiple programs, events and classes from which to select throughout the scheduled program. The program's events include:

  • Information on admission and financial aid
  • Academic sessions led by world-class faculty
  • Tours of many of lab spaces. Interested students must sign up in advance during program check-in.
  • Tours of campus and residence halls
  • The option to sit in on classes while they are in session. We request that only prospective students sit in on classes.
  • Optional overnight: Admitted students have the option of staying on campus with a current Case Western Reserve University student. Overnights may not be available to students who register less than 72 hours in advance of the start of the program.
  • Parent Reception: Parents of students staying overnight are invited to a parents-only late-afternoon reception with university faculty and staff.

Registration is no longer available because the event has been cancelled.
