University to hold all-campus barbecue Aug. 31

The typical Case Western Reserve University day will undergo a pleasant interruption on Friday, Aug. 31 during community hour. From 12:30 to 2 p.m., celebration will be in the air as the entire campus convenes on the Case Quad for the special event.

Sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, the Share the Vision Committee, Bon Appetit, and The Spot, all university students, staff, and faculty are invited to enjoy the traditional barbeque menu, live music, and entertainment.

Students participating in the meal plan will be able to use a swipe at the event. Faculty, staff, and students not on the meal plan will be able to purchase meal bracelets for $6.50 in advance at Bon Appetit vendors across campus. In support of the barbecue, Leutner and Fribley will be closed for lunch.

Entertainment will include performances by Feral Cats, a jazz combo comprised of members of the Biomedical Engineering Department, and the Case Juggling Club. Bocce, cornhole, and frisbees will also be available, and the Spartan football team and cheerleaders are also expected to make an appearance.

The event will feature introductions of CWRU student leadership and athletes, free popcorn and cotton candy, and special prizes. In the event of rain, the event will be held in the Thwing Student Center and Kelvin Smith Library.
