The classroom is just the beginning. Nearly all of our students—practically 99 percent—participate in some form of experiential learning during their time at Case Western Reserve. From joining any of our 25 dynamic student organizations to making discoveries in research jobs both on and off campus to studying abroad, opportunities abound for you to connect with your classmates, mentors and friends on campus and around the world.
Undergraduate Macromolecular Student Organization
Explore all our student organizations.
Start making discoveries: either working side-by-side with our field-leading faculty or on your own independent projects. Create a synthetic super-sponge that can soak up oil spills or use natural materials like spider webs to inspire the unbreakable fibers of the future. Invent the next generation of non-toxic, flame-resistant coatings or help make packaging smarter and more sustainable.
Meet our faculty and learn more about the exciting projects you can be a part of.
Rise to the challenge
Keep your eye on the prize and enter your great ideas into a design competition. Case Western Reserve hosts two internal contests each year: the Saint-Gobain Design Competition and the Spartan Challenge. The Great Lakes Energy Institute also supports students interested in entering the Clean Energy Challenge.
And, via CWRU LaunchNET, the university helps students participate in local, regional and national competitions and events.
