The Cleveland Stater December 2009 Versatility of the Wolstein Center Serves Cleveland Well Concerts, sporting events and comedy acts cater to the city’s varied interests Who says that there’s nothing to do on campus, or in Cleveland for that matter? The Wolstein Center is a perfect example of a venue that caters to Cleveland State University students as well as the general public, to bring the community together through different events. Introduced to the city in 1991, the Wolstein Center is home to musical concerts, Cleveland State University’s Men and Women’s Basketball Teams, as well as trade shows, high school graduation ceremonies, and much more. Although the Wolstein Center focuses on marketing events towards CSU students, General Manager Ron Willner says they also reach out to local high school students. “Our intent is to draw students to campus to give them exposure to the University”, Willner says. One way that the Wolstein Center does this is through the National College Fair, which it hosts each year. “When high school students come to the Wolstein Center for the Fair, they’re only looking at a 10 x 10 booth of another school. Here, you get the opportunity to expose potential students to the entire campus by showcasing the dorms, student center and just about everything the University has to offer”, Willner says. The Wolstein Center also hosts several area high school graduation ceremonies, including schools in Olmsted Falls, Mentor, Strongsville, Berea, Euclid, and others. In addition to being General Manager, Willner also teaches a class on event and promotion management. The class (PED 493/593), which is currently offered exclusively to CSU students, focuses on what takes place behind the scenes at the Wolstein Center. “We basically use the Wolstein Center as a learning tool to teach students about show production, negotiating contracts, and much more”, Willner says. “Students love it because they’re here on actual event days, so they are able to sit in an actual security briefing, see how stages are built, and how the entire production unfolds.” The Wolstein Center offers all of this and a variety of activities to the public, while at the same time increasing the visibility of CSU to the community. - Eric Carlson
