Case Western Reserve University Case Western Reserve University (also known as Case Western ReserveCase WesternCaseReserve, and CWRU) is a private research university in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The university was created in 1967 by the federation of Case Institute of Technology (founded in 1881 by Leonard Case Jr.) and Western Reserve University (founded in 1826 in the area that was once the Connecticut Western Reserve). TIME magazine described the merger as the creation of "Cleveland's Big-Leaguer" university.[5]SONY VAIO VPCF126FM Keyboard In U.S. News & World Report's 2013 rankings, Case Western Reserve's undergraduate program ranked 37th among national universities.[6] The University is associated with 16 Nobel Laureates.[7] Other notable alumni include Paul Buchheit, creator and lead developer of Gmail; Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist.org; and Peter Tippett,  TOSHIBA NSK-TBD01 Keyboard who developed the first anti-virus software, Vaccine, which Symantec purchased and turned into the popular Norton AntiVirus. Case Western Reserve is particularly well known[citation needed] for its medical school, dental school, law school, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, and its biomedical teaching and research capabilities. Case Western is a member of the Association of American Universities.[8]SONY VAIO VGN-AR570 Keyboard The university is approximately five miles (8 km) east of downtown Cleveland in University Circle. It is contained within a 550-acre (220 ha) area containing numerous educational, medical, and cultural institutions. Case Western Reserve has a number of programs taught in conjunction with nearby institutions, including the Cleveland Clinic, TOSHIBA P205D-S7438 Keyboard the University Hospitals of Cleveland, the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, Cleveland Institute of Music, theCleveland Hearing & Speech Center, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and the Cleveland Play House.  HP 640436-001 Keyboard Case Western Reserve was the site of the famous Michelson-Morley interferometer experiment, conducted in 1887 by A. A. Michelson of Case School of Applied Science and E. W. Morley of Western Reserve University. ACER 9J.N1H82.01D Keyboard This experiment proved the non-existence of the luminiferous ether and was later cited as convincing evidence in support of special relativity as proposed by Albert Einstein in 1905. Michelson became the first American to win a Nobel Prize in science.[9] The commemorativeMichelson-Morley Memorial Fountain is located on campus, near where the actual experiment was performed. IBM Lenovo Thinkpad X201 Keyboard Western Reserve College was founded in 1826 in Hudson, Ohio, which, at the time, was the region's most populated area and named for the Connecticut Western Reserve, out of which the area arose. The nearby city of Cleveland, located about 26 miles (42 km) to its northwest, had only begun to grow. Western Reserve College, or "Reserve" as it was popularly called, was the first college in northern Ohio.[10]HP 640436-001 Keyboard By 1875, a number of other schools had been established nearby, and Cleveland had emerged as clearly the dominant population and business center of the region. In 1882, with funding from Amasa Stone, Western Reserve College moved to Cleveland and changed its name to Western Reserve University.[11]Dell Inspiron 2500 Keyboard Case Institute of Technology In 1877, Leonard Case Jr. began laying the groundwork for the Case School of Applied Science by secretly donating valuable pieces of Cleveland real estate to a trust. He asked his confidential advisor, Henry Gilbert Abbey, to administer the trust and to keep it secret until after his death. The Case School of Applied Science was issued a charter by the state of Ohio in 1882-—just four short months after Case's death. HP 640436-001 Keyboard For the first four years of the school's existence, it was located in the Case family's home on Rockwell Street in downtown Cleveland. Classes were held in the family house, while the chemistry and physics laboratories were on the second floor of the barn. ACER Aspire 5742 Keyboard Amasa Stone's gift to relocate Western Reserve College to Cleveland also included a provision for the purchase of land in the University Circle area, adjacent to Western Reserve University, for the Case School of Applied Science. The school moved to University Circle in 1885. Dell Inspiron 2500 Keyboard During World War II, Case Institute of Applied Science was one of 131 colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V-12 Navy College Training Program which offered students a path to a Navy commission.[12]Compaq Presario CQ42-228LA Keyboard Over time, the Case School of Applied Science grew to encompass a broader vision, adopting the name Case Institute of Technology in 1947 to reflect the institution's growing stature.[11]TOSHIBA Portege 7200 Keyboard

Creating a federation

Although the trustees of Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve University did not formally federate their institutions until 1967, the union had been seen by many as inevitable for decades before that.[5] The institutions already shared buildings and staff when necessary and worked together often. One such example was seen in 1887, when Case physicist Albert Michelson and Reserve chemist Edward Morley collaborated on the famous Michelson–Morley experiment. The results of their experiment served as a foundation for Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. IBM 42T3737 Keyboard There had been some discussion of a merger of the two institutions as early as 1890, but those talks dissolved quickly. In the 1920s, the Survey Commission on Higher Education in Cleveland took a strong stand in favor of federation and the community was behind the idea as well, but in the end all that came of the study was a decision by the two institutions to cooperate in founding Cleveland College, a special unit for part-time and adult students in downtown Cleveland. DELL Inspiron M5030 Keyboard By the 1960s, Reserve President John Schoff Millis and Case President T. Keith Glennan shared the idea that federation would create a complete university, one better able to attain national distinction. Financed by the Carnegie Corporation, Cleveland Foundation, Greater Cleveland Associated Foundation, and several local donors, a study commission of national leaders in higher education and public policy was charged with exploring the idea of federation. ASUS Z9100L Keyboard The Heald Commission, so known for its chair, former Ford Foundation President Henry T. Heald, issued its final report, "Vision of a University." The report predicted that federation would create one of the largest private universities in the nation, with a combined faculty larger than that of Princeton, Chicago, Stanford, or Johns Hopkins.  HP 597635-001 Keyboard DELL Latitude D531 Keyboard Case Institute of Technology, a school of science and engineering, and Western Reserve University, known for its strong liberal arts and professional programs, came together in 1967 to form Case Western Reserve University.[1IBM Lenovo Thinkpad X201 Keyboard he university is approximately five miles (eight km) east of downtown Cleveland, adjacent to the historic Wade Park District in University Circle, a city neighborhood and commercial center, home to numerous educational, medical, and other cultural institutions.

HP 640892-001 Keyboard The Kent H. Smith Quadrangle (known to students as the Main Quad) is located south of Euclid between Adelbert Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. All of the engineering buildings are located on this quad in addition to all of the natural science buildings.  HP Mini 110-1032NR Keyboard

Flora Stone Mather Quadrangle

The Flora Stone Mather Quadrangle (known to students as the Mather Quad) is located north of Euclid Avenue between East Blvd., E. 115th Street, and Juniper Road. Usually it is more strictly defined by the area between East Blvd, Bellflower Road, and Ford Road north of Euclid Avenue. Named for the philanthropist wife of prominent industrialist Samuel Mather and sister-in-law of the famous statesman John Hay, HP Mini 110-3118cl Keyboard the Flora Stone Mather Quad is home to Weatherhead School of Management, School of Law, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, and many departments of the College of Arts and Sciences. The Kelvin Smith Library (Case Western Reserve's main library) and the Thwing Student Center are also located on Mather Quad. HP 605344-001 Keyboard Situated on the northeast end of campus, the North Residential Village (NRV) is home to all Case Western Reserve's freshman who reside on campus. Constructed in the 1960s, the NRV consists of 12 4 floor buildings, an 11 floor "tower," Leutner (a dining hall), and a building containing the NRV area office and rehearsal space for Case Western Reserve's music department. TOSHIBA Satellite L300 Keyboard Located along E. 115th Street, this is the newest addition to Case Western Reserve's residential housing units, which opened in the fall of 2005. Currently, only upper-class members may reside there. The Village (as students refer to it) consists of seven houses that surround the football field and track. Village housing is apartment style, with apartments that house one to nine people (excluding eight person units). The apartments are fully furnished. The Village is also LEED certified. Houses 1-4 & 6-7 are certified silver while house 5 is certified gold.  ACER 9J.N1H82.01D Keyboard In February 2011, a broken pipe joint in the plumbing of House 6 caused over a 500,000 US gallons (1,900 m3) of water to flood the House's apartments, displacing upwards of 40 students. Although University Housing had crews working to repair the damage around the clock, it was over a week before any students could return, some as long as three weeks. This raised concerns about cut corners resulting in poor construction quality of the Village Houses.[citation needed]DELL 0454RX Keyboard Located between Murray Hill, Cedar, Edgehill, and Overlook roads, the South Residential Village (SRV) is home to most of Case Western Reserve's sophomore class. SRV is divided into two sections: Murray Hill Complex and Carlton Road Complex (known to students as bottom of the hill and top of the hill, respectively, HP Pavilion G6-1C58DX Keyboard due to the hill separating the two complexes). Carlton Road Complex includes three sophomore-only dormitories and several Greek life houses. Murray Hill Complex includes two sophomore only buildings, one sophomore and upperclassmen building, one upperclassmen-only building, and Fribley, the SRV dining hall. TOSHIBA NB100-11G Keyboard Transportation There are two main transportation options for students: For on- and near-campus transportation, Case Western Reserve has a fleet of shuttle buses known as Greenies, though they are currently painted blue.[citation needed] For longer trips, students may use the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) bus and rail system. Each undergraduate student receives an unlimited RTA pass, which is paid for via a mandatory $25 fee per semester. ACER Aspire 5930 Keyboard Case Western Reserve does not manage its parking lots (University Circle Incorporated manages the lots). Students, faculty, and staff still purchase permits from the university. The rates vary between approximately $30 and $120 per month. SONY VAIO VGN-FS315B Keyboard The university owns two parking garages, one at the Village at 115 (Lot S-46) and the other near the Veale Athletic Center (Lot S-53). Permits for these two lots are purchased from the university, and cost about $670 and $760, respectively, per year,[14] excluding the summer. TOSHIBA Satellite L755-S5168 Keyboard In 2011, Washington Monthly ranked Case Western Reserve as the nation's 7th best national university for contributing to the public good. The publication's ranking was based upon a combination of factors including social mobility, research, and service.[22] In 2009, the school had ranked 15th.[23] In 2010, The Times ranked Case Western Reserve 39th in the U.S. and 65th worldwide.[24]HP Mini 110-1006tu Keyboard In September 2009, "BusinessWeek" ranked Case Western Reserve's Weatherhead School of Management as one of the 30 best Design Thinking schools in the world.[25] In 2008, the National Science Foundation ranked Case Western Reserve #23 in the country for producing the highest percentage of undergraduate students that go on to earn Engineering and Science Ph.Ds.[26] DELL XPS 15 L502X Keyboard  ASUS F6 Keyboard The Advocate ranked Case Western Reserve University one of the top 100 LGBT-friendly universities.

Only 7 percent were undecided.[30] The class of 2013 had 35 percent of students from Ohio, 56 percent from other states, and 9 percent from outside of the United States—representing a total of 50 states and 82 countries. SONY VAIO PCG-FR315S Keyboard In 2003, the university unveiled a new logo and branding campaign that emphasized the "Case" portion of its name. In 2006, interim university president Gregory Eastwood convened a task group to study reactions to the campaign. The panel's report indicated that it had gone so poorly that, "There appear to be serious concerns now about the university's ability to recruit and maintain high-quality faculty, fund-raising and leadership." Also, the logo was derided among the university's community and alumni and throughout northeastern Ohio; critics said it looked like "...a fat man with a surfboard."[33]TOSHIBA Satellite L775D-S7330 Keyboard In 2007, the university's board of trustees approved a shift back to giving equal weight to "Case" and "Western Reserve." A new logo was chosen and implementation began July 1.[34] In an open letter to the university community, interim president Eastwood admitted that "the university had misplaced its own history and traditions."[35]HP Pavilion dv3-2030eo Keyboard

Student life

Unless students are living with a relative within 40 miles (64 km) of the university, Case Western Reserve requires first- and second-year students to live in on-campus housing. Meal plan participation is also mandatory for first- and second-year students, with some exceptions made for religious and medical reasons. New housing for underclassmen, along with a "Greek village," bringing all the college's fraternities and sororities together with the other undergraduates, is slated to be constructed in the future.  HP 599572-001 Keyboard The residence halls are divided into two areas, one featuring suite-style rooms for second-year students and upperclassmen and the other featuring double and single rooms for first-year students. Both have gigabit ethernet network access and the wired network is one of the fastest that exists. A wireless campus network is also available anywhere on campus and ranked as one of the fastest by Intel in 2005. New housing, known as the Village at 115, was opened in fall 2005 for upperclassmen, which features one- to nine-person, "apartment-style" residence halls that come with air conditioning, a full kitchen area, and full-sized beds. HP 605344-001 Keyboard Residence Life at Case Western Reserve has a recent history of being liberal in its policies, including allowing co-ed suites (an option offered to non-freshman students, when requested and agreed upon by all occupants of a suite) and some co-ed floors for freshmen, as well as a three-day guest policy. Pets are allowed except for dogs, cats, ferrets, and a few other small mammals, but requests are granted discussion. FUJITSU Amilo Mini Ui 3520 Keyboard Graduate students are not offered housing.

GATEWAY MX3702 Keyboard Computing Case Western Reserve had the first ABET-accredited program in computer engineering.[40] In 1968, the university formed a private company, Chi Corporation, to provide computer time to both it and other customers. Initially this was on a Univac 1108(replacing the preceding UNIVAC 1107), 36 bit, one's complement machine.[41] The company was sold in 1977 to Robert G. Benson in Beachwood, Ohio. ACER Aspire 3690 Keyboard Project Logos, under ARPA contract, was begun within the department on a DEC System-10 (later converted to TENEX (BBN) in conjunction with connection to theARPANET) to develop a computer-aided computer design system. This system consisted in a distributed, networked, graphics environment, a control and data flow designer and logic (both hardware and software) analyzer. Graphics and animation became another departmental focus with the acquisition of an Evans & SutherlandLDS-1, which was hosted by the DEC System-10, and later with the acquisition of the stand alone LDS-2. ACER Aspire 5580 Keyboard Case Western Reserve was one of the earliest universities connected to the ARPANET, predecessor to the Internet. ARPANET went online in 1969; Case Western Reserve was connected in January, 1971.[42] Case Western Reserve graduate Ken Biba published the Biba Integrity Model in 1977 and served on the ARPA Working Group that developed the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) used on the Internet.  HP 640892-001 Keyboard Case Western Reserve pioneered the early Free-net computer systems, creating the first Free-net, The Cleveland Free-Net, as well as writing the software that drove a majority of those systems, known as FreePort.

Richard Stengel has been the managing editor since May 2006.[3] HP Pavilion DV6-6B00 Keyboard Time magazine was created in 1923 by Briton Hadden and Henry Luce, making it the first weekly news magazine in the United States.[4] The two had previously worked together as chairman and managing editor respectively of the Yale Daily News and considered calling the magazine Facts.[5] SONY VAIO VGN-FS285M Keyboard Hadden was a rather carefree figure, who liked to tease Luce and saw Time as something important but also fun. That accounts for its tone, which many people still criticize as too light for serious news and more suited to its heavy coverage of celebrities (including politicians), the entertainment industry, and pop culture. It set out to tell the news through people, and for many decades the magazine's cover was of a single person. The first issue ofTime was published on March 3, SONY VAIO VGN-FW180FU Keyboard 1923, featuring on its cover Joseph G. Cannon, the retired Speaker of the United States House of Representatives; a facsimile reprint of Issue No. 1, including all of the articles and advertisements contained in the original, was included with copies of the February 28, 1938 issue as a commemoration of the magazine's 15th anniversary.[6]On Hadden's death in 1929, Luce became the dominant man at Time and a major figure in the history of 20th-century media. According to Time Inc.: DELL Latitude D620 Keyboard The Intimate History of a Publishing Enterprise 1972–2004 by Robert Elson, "Roy Edward Larsen [...] was to play a role second only to Luce's in the development of Time Inc." In his book, The March of Time, 1935–1951, Raymond Fielding also noted that Larsen was "originally circulation manager and then general manager of Time, later publisher ofLife, for many years president of Time Inc., and in the long history of the corporation the most influential and important figure after Luce." TOSHIBA Satellite L300 Keyboard Around the time they were raising US$100,000 from wealthy Yale alumni like Henry P. Davison, partner of J.P. Morgan & Co., publicity man Martin Egan and J.P. Morgan & Co. banker Dwight Morrow, Henry Luce and Briton Hadden hired Larsen in 1922 – although Larsen was a Harvard graduate and Luce and Hadden were Yale graduates. After Hadden died in 1929,  HP 640892-001 Keyboard Larsen purchased 550 shares of Time Inc., using money he obtained from selling RKO stock which he had inherited from his father, who was the head of the B.F. Keith theatre chain in New England. However, after Briton Hadden's death, the largest Time Inc. stockholder was Henry Luce, who ruled the media conglomerate in an autocratic fashion, "HP 640436-001 Keyboard at his right hand was Larsen," Time Inc.'s second-largest stockholder, according to "Time Inc.: The Intimate History of a Publishing Enterprise 1923–1941". In 1929, Roy Larsen was also named a Time Inc. director and a Time Inc. vice-president. J.P. Morgan retained a certain control through two directorates and a share of stocks, both over Time and Fortune. Other shareholders were Brown Brothers W. A. Harriman & Co., and The New York Trust Company (Standard Oil). TOSHIBA NSK-TBD01 Keyboard By the time of Henry Luce's death in 1967, the Time Inc. stock which Luce owned was worth about US$109 million and yielded him a yearly dividend income of more than US$2.4 million, according to The World of Time Inc: The Intimate History of a Changing Enterprise 1960–1989 by Curtis Prendergast. The value of the Larsen family's Time Inc.  DELL Latitude D830 Keyboard stock was now worth about $80 million during the 1960s and Roy Larsen was both a Time Inc. director and the chairman of its Executive Committee, before serving as Time Inc.'s vice-chairman of the board until the middle of 1979. According to the September 10, 1979 issue of The New York Times, "Mr. Larsen was the only employee in the company's history given an exemption from its policy of mandatory retirement at age 65." ACER Aspire 5610Z Keyboard After Time magazine began publishing its weekly issues in March 1923, Roy Larsen was able to increase its circulation by utilizing U.S. radio and movie theaters around the world. It often promoted both "Time" magazine and U.S. political and corporate interests. According to The March of Time, HP 640436-001 Keyboard as early as 1924, Larsen had brought Time into the infant radio business with the broadcast of a 15-minute sustaining quiz show entitled Pop Question which survived until 1925." Then, according to the same book, "In 1928 [...] Larsen undertook the weekly broadcast of a 10-minute programme series of brief news summaries, drawn from current issues of Time magazine [...] which was originally broadcast over 33 stations throughout the United States." Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 Keyboard Larsen next arranged for a 30-minute radio program, The March of Time, to be broadcast over CBS, beginning on March 6, 1931. Each week, the program presented a dramatisation of the week's news for its listeners, thus Time magazine itself was brought "to the attention of millions previously unaware of its HP G62-b54SE Keyboard according to Time Inc.: The Intimate History of a Publishing Enterprise 1923–1941, leading to an increased circulation of the magazine during the 1930s. Between 1931 and 1937, Larsen's The March of Time radio program was broadcast over CBS radio and between 1937 and 1945 it was broadcast over NBC radio – except for the 1939 to 1941 period when it was not aired. People Magazine was based on Time's People page. DELL Vostro 3700 Keyboard Time became part of Time Warner in 1989, along with Warner Bros. when Time, Inc. and Warner Communications merged. Jason McManus succeeded Henry Grunwald in 1988 as Editor-in-Chief and oversaw the transition before Norman Pearlstine succeeded him in 1995. SAMSUNG R522 Keyboard Since 2000, the magazine has been part of AOL Time Warner, which subsequently reverted to the name Time Warner in 2003. In 2007, Time moved from a Monday subscription/newsstand delivery to a schedule where the magazine goes on sale Fridays, and is delivered to subscribers on Saturday. The magazine actually began in 1923 with Friday publication. HP Probook 4515S Keyboard During early 2007, the year's first issue was delayed for roughly a week due to "editorial changes." The changes included the job losses of 49 employees.[7] In 2009 Time announced that they were introducing a personalized print magazine, Mine, mixing content from a range of Time Warner publications based on the reader's preferences. The new magazine met with a poor reception, with criticism that its focus was too broad to be truly personal.[8]TOSHIBA Satellite C655D-SP5003M Keyboard The magazine has an online archive with the unformatted text for every article published. The articles are indexed and were converted from scanned images usingoptical character recognition technology. There are still minor errors in the text that are remnants of the conversion into digital format. SONY VAIO VGN-NR21E/S Keyboard On May 2, Time announced that subscribers to its paper magazines including TimeSports Illustrated and Fortune will have access to the iPad versions of these magazines for no extra charge. European subscribers are excluded from accessing the online version of Time or becoming online subscribers. Only the paper edition is available in Europe. Compaq Presario CQ57 Series Keyboard Time Inc. and Apple have come to an agreement wherein subscribers to Time Inc. magazines will be able to read the iPad versions of those magazines for free, at least until the two companies sort out a viable digital subscription model.[9]HP G62-b17EL Keyboard


Time initially possessed a distinctive writing style, making regular use of inverted sentences. This was parodied in 1936 by Wolcott Gibbs in an article in The New Yorker: "Backward ran sentences until reeled the mind [...] Where it all will end, knows God!"[citation needed] Up until the mid-1970s or so,[12] Time had a weekly section called "Listings", which contained capsule summaries and/or reviews of then-current significant films, plays, musicals, television programs, and literary bestsellers, much like The New Yorker's section "Current Events".Lenovo Thinkpad T410I Keyboard Time is also known for its signature red border, introduced in 1927. The iconic red border was homaged or satirized by Seattle's The Stranger newspaper in 2010.[13] The border has only been changed thrice since 1927: The issue released shortly after the September 11 attacks on the United States featured a black border to symbolize mourning. However, this edition was a special "extra" edition published quickly for the breaking news of the event; LENOVO IdeaPad S10 20015 Keyboard the next regularly scheduled issue contained the red border. Additionally, the April 28, 2008, Earth Day issue, dedicated to environmental issues, contained a green border.[14] The most recent change in border was in the September 19, 2011 issue, commemorating the 10th anniversary of September 11 attacks with a metallic silver border.  SONY VAIO VGN-AR570 Keyboard In 2007, Time engineered a style overhaul of the magazine. Among other changes, the magazine reduced the red cover border in order to promote featured stories, enlarged column titles, reduced the number of featured stories, increased white space around articles, and accompanied opinion pieces with photographs of the writers. The changes have met both criticism and praise.[15][16][17] ASUS X53S Keyboard Time's most famous feature throughout its history has been the annual "Person of the Year" (formerly "Man of the Year") cover story, in which Time recognizes the individual or group of individuals who have had the biggest impact on news headlines over the past 12 months. The distinction is supposed to go to the person who, for good or ill, has most affected the course of the year; it is therefore not necessarily an honor or a reward. In the past, such figures as Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin have been Man of the Year. SONY VAIO VGN-CR210EL Keyboard In 2006 the Person of the Year was designated as "You", a move that was met with split reviews. Some thought the concept was creative; others wanted an actual person of the year. Editor Stengel reflected that, if it had been a mistake, "we're only going to make it once."[18] In 2008 the Person of the Year was Barack Obama, with Sarah Palin as a runner-up. Obama is the 12th U.S. President (or President-elect) so honored, following a line of every president since Franklin Roosevelt, with the sole exception of Gerald Ford. ASUS X53S Keyboard In recent years Time has assembled an annual list of the 100 most influential people of the year. Originally, they had made a list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. These issues usually have the front cover filled with pictures of people from the list and devote a substantial amount of space within the magazine to the 100 articles about each person on the list. There have, in some cases, been over 100 people, when two people have made the list together, sharing one spot. TOSHIBA A000014900 Keyboard The Cleveland Institute of Music is an independent, international music conservatory located in the University Circledistrict of Cleveland, Ohio, United States. It is led by President Joel Smirnoff. Adrian Daly serves as dean for the conservatory and Sandra Shapiro is dean of the preparatory/continuing education division. ASUS X53S Keyboard The Institute was founded in 1920, with the composer Ernest Bloch as director. There are now more than 400 conservatory students and 1500 preparatory and continuing education students. Approximately 1,100 people apply for 150 undergraduate and graduate openings each year, of which 60-70 are freshmen. Compaq Presario CQ57 Series Keyboard More than half of the members of The Cleveland Orchestra are connected to the Cleveland Institute of Music as members of the faculty, alumni or both. Through a cooperative arrangement with Case Western Reserve University, CIM students have full access to university courses and facilities. In 2007, CIM completed a remodeling project in conjunction with its successful campaign to raise $40 million. Two wings were added to the main building. The facilities added 36,000 square feet (3,300 m2) and feature: HP Envy 15 Keyboard a new entryway and expanded lobby --Pogue Lobby--on East Boulevard; an expanded Barbara S. and Larry J. B.

The city is named after its founder, David Hudson, who settled there from Goshen, Connecticut in 1799, when it was part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. HP Pavilion G6-1B59WM Keyboard The Underground Railroad passed through Hudson, and the town was the childhood home of John Brown after his family moved there in 1805.James Ellsworth and his wealth helped modernize Hudson in the early twentieth century. His son, Lincoln Ellsworth, was a polar explorer, and also the only Hudsonite ever featured on a U.S. postage stamp.Dante Lavelli, a Pro Football Hall of Fame member, played for Hudson High School's football team. TOSHIBA Equium A100 Series Keyboard SONY VAIO VGN-CR160F Keyboard Ian Frazier, an author and contributor to The New Yorker, is a Western Reserve Academy graduate and Hudsonite. On November 28, 1973, a large area of the village, "roughly bounded by College, Streetsboro, S. Main, and Baldwin" streets, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Hudson Historic District. The historic district was expanded on October 10, 1989, to also include the area "roughly bounded by Hudson St., Old Orchard Dr., Aurora St., Oviatt St., Streetsboro St., and College St. to Aurora (street)". In addition to the Hudson Historic District, there are several additional properties in Hudson listed on the Register.[4]ACER Aspire 7540 Keyboard In November 2002, Hudson was the first community in the U.S. to launch a citywide electronic gift card. The card was introduced by the Hudson Chamber of Commerce to help stimulate and keep shopping dollars with the independent merchants in town. (See TV news coverage.) In July 2003, heavy, constant rains led to minor to severe floods in Hudson. Two Hudsonites died during these floods. TOSHIBA Satellite A300-177 Keyboard In 2010, the city was named as one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People by America's Promise. The award was based on the city's "Community First" organization that was developed in the 1990s to combat drug use and school dropouts and to promote better choices in the city's youth by providing additional educational and cultural opportunities.[5]Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 Keyboard The Hudson Park Board oversees more than one thousand acres (4 km²) of parkland in the city.

p>[16] The most prominent property is Hudson Springs Park, which has a lake, a walking trail, a disc golfcourse, and docks. Cascade Park, Barlow Farm Park, and Colony Park are large neighborhood parks used for sports and general family recreation. Other properties, such as Doc's Woods, MacLaren Woods, Trumbull Woods, and Bicentennial Woods, are kept as forested nature preserves. The first Hudson Park, Wildlife Woods, is actually located west of the city in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. SONY VAIO VGN-FZ21M Keyboard On multiple occasions, High Point Park has been the subject of criminal mischief in the Hudson Hub, a local newspaper. In 2000, the park's natural gas well was set on fire and contributed to a blaze that scorched 1-2 acres of grassland. Three juveniles were charged with arson. The park has also been home to some of the largest tree houses in Ohio. Police have dismantled three forts colloquially known as "moon towers," each standing in excess of 40 feet (12 m) and visible from Google Earth.[17]DELL Inspiron N4050 Keyboard As of the 2000 census,[2] there were 22,439 people, 7,357 households, and 6,349 families residing in the city.

HP Pavilion dv6-2112sa Keyboard The origins of Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center date back to 1914 when various Cleveland-based lip-reading clubs were started by some of the Center's original founding members. From 1921 to 1930, under the leadership of Mrs. Helen Newell Garfield, the daughter-in-law of the late United States President James A. Garfield,  HP Pavilion DV6-6B00 Keyboard a number of these clubs were consolidated into one unified organization with the primary focus of providing lip-reading services for adults. Through the 1930s and early 1940s, the organization was called the Cleveland Association of the Hard of Hearing. Under the leadership of James E. Garfield and Marie Hays Heiner, it expanded its scope of services when hearing services for children were added. HP CT1A Keyboard In 1945, the organization merged with the speech clinic at Western Reserve University. This new organization, renamed Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center, moved to a University owned house (the former School of Architecture) at 11206 Euclid Avenue, which was aptly named Garfield House. The organization was incorporated on January 8, 1946. CHSCs affiliation with Case Western Reserve University's Department of Communication Sciences remains in place today; the department is housed in CHSCs University Circle building, and CHSC provides clinical training to the departments graduate students. HP Mini 110-3118cl Keyboard In 1953, as CHSC continued to expand services, a building addition was added. In 1965, the original Garfield House was razed to make room for a modern facility. TOSHIBA Satellite L775D-S7332 Keyboard CHSCs Speech-Language Pathology team provides evaluation and treatment for communication problems associated with language learning disabilities, severe speech sound production disorders, neurological problems, stuttering, and voice disorders.

Therapy groups providing effective speech-language treatment for persons with Down syndrome, Asperger syndrome, autism, and stuttering are also offered by CHSC. Packard Bell NEW95 Keyboard CHSCs Audiology team provides hearing screenings and evaluations, hearing aid and assistive listening device fitting, and consultation on advanced hearing aid technology. The Audiology program operates in CHSCs University Circle, South Euclid, and Broadview Heights office locations. It also provides services in other community settings such as health fairs and nursing homes. Packard Bell Easynote TK87 Keyboard One in every ten (28 million) Americans has hearing loss; 30% of these individuals do not use hearing aids because, although they could benefit from them, they cannot afford them. CHSCs Audiology Patient Assistance (APA) provides free hearing aids and assistive listening devices (such as flashing fire alarms, vibrating alarm clocks, speech-generating computers, text telephones, etc.) to clients who meet the programs criteria for financial need. SONY VAIO VGN-FS215B Keyboard CHSC audiologists are regularly sought out for television news features, community health fairs, and other programs to educate health and human service professionals and the general public on hearing loss and related topics. The Safe SoundSM program, presented by CHSC pediatric audiologists to third and fourth graders at area schools, teaches the importance of hearing conservation, including playing personal listening devices at appropriate noise levels. Lenovo 3000 G530 4151 Keyboard This program offers a spectrum of services to the deaf and hard of hearing community in Northeast Ohio. It operates in CHSCs University Circle and Lorain offices.

This free-of charge, family-focused program offers outreach services to infants and toddlers (birth to age three) who have hearing loss. HP Pavilion dv6-3052nr Keyboard In 2004, it became legally mandatory in the State of Ohio for hospitals and birthing centers to screen infants for hearing loss. The passing of this legislation was an important and positive step, because without screening, detection of hearing loss would typically occur too late to prevent delays in the child's language development.  HP Pavilion dv6-2170us Keyboard Families of infants who do not pass the screening are tracked and contacted by RIHP, which helps them set up complete hearing evaluations for their children. Through home visits, RIHPs Outreach Specialists provide unbiased information to families of children with hearing loss on the options that are available to them (such as cochlear implants or learning sign language)  DELL Inspiron N4050 Keyboard and teaches strategies for building communication skills during daily routines. Services provided by RIHP also include support groups, social and educational programs, links to other community resources, and opportunities to interact with the deaf community.
