Cornell Cares Day, Jan. 7
A capacity crowd of volunteers of all ages gathered to work at the Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross on Saturday. We assembled nearly 400 kits filled with personal hygiene items, which are given to people affected by disasters. Thanks to all for giving back to our community!

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.
