Campus Community Invited to Attend Summer Barbecues, Shop Farmer's Market
In a nod to the fun and casual days of summer, Case Western Reserve University community members will have an opportunity to eat or purchase their meals, fruits and vegetables in a more festive environment. That's because Summer Barbecues will return starting Wednesday, June 10, and a farmer's market will be up and running beginning Friday, June 5.
Sponsored by Bon Appétit Management Company, the Office of Summer Programs, Campus Services, and the Office of Student Activities and Leadership, the Summer Barbecues are an annual tradition designed to bring the campus community together in an atmosphere featuring festive food and music. Five different menus and musical styles are planned for each Wednesday beginning June 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 on the Crawford Deck. The events are open to the public, and friends, visitors and family are welcome to attend. Each barbecue event costs $7.75 per person (including a beverage), or $35 for a book of five tickets. Go online for more information about the specific menus and musical selections.
Beginning Friday, June 5, a farmer's market will be held each Friday through September from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. outside the Biomedical Research Building atrium. Learn more.
During the past year, the Departments of Construction Administration and Information Technology Services have worked on renovations to data centers in Crawford Hall and Kelvin Smith Library. The departments completely rebuilt the power, cooling, fiber and network systems within Case Western Reserve's two data centers, and migrated all of the servers over to these new systems. Additionally, 1,000 square feet of data center space at Kelvin Smith Library has been added specifically for the existing and future Research Computing clusters. As of this week, these projects have come to a successful conclusion. The project-related periodic service outages are over, and all systems are fully utilizing the new infrastructure. The departments would like to thank the campus community for their patience, cooperation and support.
