Why attend Summer at CWRU?

Summer is a great time to catch up, get ahead, or concentrate on one or more intensive courses.  Want to study abroad for a semester or year or go on co-op or take on an internship?  Make sure you have your SAGES courses completed before you go and your major requirements on their way.  Majoring in pre-med or biology? We will have the full range of introductory biology courses in 2017 plus you can complete a full year of introductory chemistry, organic chemistry, and physics in back-to-back sessions. And summer tuition for courses numbered 1-399 is half-price. Join Casey the Carp(e) in seizing the opportunity to get ahead. Carpe diem! Carpe summer!
