- Established university-wide alumni groups/contacts can be found in 50+ world areas.

Once a Cornellian, always a Cornellian. Near or far, Cornellians across the globe make vital contributions to the life of the university by serving on advisory councils and boards, sharing ambassadorial messages about the university, providing leadership in their professional fields and local communities, recruiting future Cornellians, nurturing young alumni, giving to the university, and organizing dynamic events and programs that engage, inform, and enrich each other.
Thank you for all that you do for each other and for Cornell. We look forward to staying in touch with you or even better, welcoming you and yours back at Reunion in June, Cornell Adult University in the summer, Homecoming in the fall, or any time when you are in your Big Red mood! Board the Wi-Fi enabled 3x a day Campus-to-Campus shuttle in Manhattan; in 4 hours you will find yourself in the heart of campus ...
