The Women of Color Coalition works to create unity across boundaries that have been both internally and externally constructed to oppress but that have also empowered women of color to build pride. This coalition programs events that gives voice and strength to experiences that are often marginalized and fosters further self-reflection and awareness of issues that affect women of color at Cornell.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to become a part of a unique communal artwork display that breaks racial stereotypes.

You will have the opportunity to trace your hand on a large canvas with a color that represents who you are on a personality basis, not just what you look like on the outside. We will have an array of colors for you to choose from; from bright, fun hues to deep, sultry ones.

Want to get paid for eating on campus?

Sign up for Cornell Dining's Mystery Shopper Program!

Each shopper is assigned three "shops" in different eateries during the course of each semester, and after dining, completes an online questionnaire regarding their visit. Each shopper then gets paid (in BRBs) $10 for each retail shop visit (ie. Bear Necessities, Libe Café) and $12 for each dining hall visit.

Mystery shoppers must complete a brief training session prior to their assignments.

We are excited to present the Big Red Shuttle, Cornell's first free late-night transportation service for students who need a safe ride home.

Initially, the Big Red Shuttle provided students with rides during exam periods. However, the need for additional means of late-night transportation has become clear. Now, the Big Red Shuttle is no longer an academic-only resource, but one that provides timely and free transportation to Cornell students everywhere in need of a safe ride home.

Starting Friday, 10/14 , the Big Red Shuttle will run a 20-minute route every Friday and Saturday night from 12am-3am with a professional driver and two student aids trained by Cayuga's Watchers.
