Scwrud: A CWRU Undergraduate Experience

Welcome. As of this writing, I’m in the last semester of my senior year at Case Western Reserve University. My purpose in writing this blog is twofold. First, I want to make my views on the current quality of Case’s undergraduate education known to prospective students; and second, I hope to persuade the current members of Case’s academic community to construct solutions to the problems I outline here.

I believe

  • that transparency is vital to effecting institutional change;
  • that it is in Case’s best long-term interest to provide an accurate, current view of its undergraduate programs to prospective students; and
  • that Case can be the things it desires to be if it takes the previous two points into account.

I hope for this blog not to be a solo effort; as such, please email me if you’re interested in becoming a contributing author—part of the difference between “lone belligerent crackpot” and “community of clear-minded individuals asking for change” lies in having other people around. :)

I hope for most of these posts to be entertaining; nothing is worth doing if it isn’t fun. That said, some of them will be serious—so, sorry about that.

Thanks for reading this far. If you haven’t already, please subscribe. Cheers!
