Class of 1974


Your reunion year is a great time to reconnect with classmates and renew your support of Case Western Reserve University College of Arts and Sciences. Your gift allows us to continue a tradition of academic excellence now and for all future classes.

The Class of 1974 is excited to introduce the college’s first class-specific endowed scholarship! To ensure the legacy of ’74, classmates have made gifts to establish this fund and we are asking several others to take part in this unique opportunity. Creating an endowed class scholarship through a collective effort means you all will play a role in supporting an exceptional CWRU student. The Class of 1974 looks forward to announcing the creation of the scholarship and being together at the 50th reunion in November.
