Accepted Students' Social

Our annual reception for accepted students and their parents is a chance to connect with new students and for alums to persuade any uncommitted ones. We had an excellent turnout April 12 at Oak Hill Country Club and enjoyed ice cream sundaes.


Our Essay Contest Is Back!

We have found a volunteer for our annual Essay Contest, and her job is to coordinate with area high school teachers and volunteers who read and grade the essays. To volunteer to read a set of 10 essays, email us at CornellEssayContest@gmail.com (with "essay reader" in the subject line). To learn about this year's winners, see cornellclubrochester.org/essaycontest.html.

Cornell Cares Day 2016, Jan. 2

Cornell Cares Day is an annual day of service when Cornell alums and students partner with a non-profit agency to give back to their local community. To kick off the New Year, about a dozen volunteers met at the Red Cross offices to assemble almost 300 kits filled with personal hygiene items distributed to disaster victims. Thanks to Maisie Orsillo '15 for organizing this worthy event.

Volunteers Always Needed

Did you know that all alumni in the Rochester area are automatically members of the Rochester Cornell Club? No dues required.

We invite you to come to our events, join a committee, propose ways the Club can do a better job, or volunteer to help. Specifically, these committees need members:

  • Scholarship: A new committee to administer our annual scholarship program for area Cornell applicants
  • Finance: To oversee scholarship fund investments
  • Programming: To help plan events

If you like speaking to CU applicants, consider joining the Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network. CAAAN members contact local candidates who have applied to Cornell, to answer their questions about attending Cornell. We have hundreds of applicants in our area, many of whom go unassigned.
