Cleveland State University
Parent Connection Newsletter

Welcome to the Spring Edition of the Parent Connection Newsletter!

This semester has been full of excitement and energy at Cleveland State University! The national spotlight again shined on CSU during President Obama's third campus visit since 2009, the men's basketball team won the Horizon League conference for the first time in school history, CSU hosted the largest career fair in NorthEast Ohio, and students are traveling over spring break to volunteer in Alabama and Michigan.

We truly hope that your student is making the most out of his/her college experience in the classroom and around campus. Encourage your student to develop positive relationships with professors, meet new friends, join student organizations, participate in campus events and seek internships & co-ops. Spring is also the time of year to start speaking with your student about May graduation and career plans, or your student's summer break plans.

We've provided key dates for the second half of spring semester, as well as CSU event and news updates below. As always, please feel free to contact our staff if you have any questions. You can reach us at 216.687.9379 or

Have a wonderful spring!
