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 have fourteen biology courses in 2016 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.  These are great reasons to seize the moment and Carpe Summer!
