Sept. 25, 2014


Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:

I've had an opportunity to reflect on the University's Green Turns Gold Weekend—a singular moment for Cleveland State and one that I will always remember.

The weekend was highlighted by our Celebration Block Party on Friday night. The tangible energy and spirit on campus was profound. More than 4,000 people came together to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Many lined the street as a vibrant Homecoming Parade of the Decades—led by alumnus Norris Cole and Wally Morton, who coached CSU's swimming and diving teams from 1974 to 2014—marched down Euclid Avenue.

The Block Party was an extraordinary kickoff to what will be a yearlong celebration of our 50th anniversary. Thank you to all who generously devoted their time and energy to make the event such a tremendous success. To enjoy highlights of the party, watch this great video.
