What is the Student Turning Point Society?

The Student Turning Point Society is a select group of undergraduate leaders committed to promoting the spirit of Case Western Reserve University and dedicated to the ideal that students are responsible for leaving the university a better place than they found it.

The Student Turning Point Society also has the distinction of being able to offer its members networking opportunities with friends and alumni of the university. This type of interaction with intergenerational constituents has provided unique exposure for students.

How do I become a member of STPS?

STPS members are selected annually during a spring recruitment drive. Applications are made available to all students during the Spring semester. The application process consists of a written and, for those selected to advance, an interview portion. Membership in STPS is highly selective and competitive.

Students are selected based upon the following criteria: extraordinary dedication to Case Western Reserve University, a record of contribution to the university, proven leadership ability, an academic record of a minimum 2.5 grade point average, and a strong interview and faculty recommendation.

What are the benefits of joining STPS?

  • Build strong connections with other student leaders on campus.
  • Interact and develop relationships with the university's administration, alumni, and friends.
  • Work with members of the administration and faculty to enhance campus life for future students.

What do STPS members do?

  • Participate in social functions and alumni events.
  • Serve on one of three executive committees.
  • Meet monthly to discuss committee and STPS projects.
  • Conduct personal tours for VIPs and other high-profile campus visitors.
