This year challenged us in ways none of us had seen before. The pandemic stole away our familiar routines and sometime our loved ones. But we carried on, often with creative solutions, and came together as a campus community. Meanwhile, education and discovery continued in the Case tradition. In this month’s newsletter, we look back on some of our most popular stories from 2020 and show you why Case has much to look forward to in the year ahead.

From all of us at the Case Alumni Association, we wish you and yours a healthy and blessed holiday season.


There’s plenty about 2020 we’ll be happy to leave behind. But let us remind you of what you’ll want to remember. We present your favorite stories, videos and podcasts from the past year.
