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.
