A message from the Dean

Cheryl Coatney's last day will be December 23rd. I hope that everyone will add their appreciation to mine, for Cheryl’s 15 years of service to Cornish students. She has most recently has provided Disability Support Services and Career Services, but has served a variety of other capacities throughout her year's with Cornish.

Everyone is invited to a farewell party for Cheryl on Friday, December 5th from 2:45- 4:00pm in the Faculty/Staff Lounge (MCC 7th floor). I hope that you will drop by and wish Cheryl the very best.

Cornish Clothing Swap! | December 4th | 12:00pm-1:00pm | Nellies Cafe

Makena & Mica are holding this clothing swap for a H&S project investigating sustainability. Our goal is to create a place for cornish members to recycle or goods to each other instead of using new materials and filling landfills. If you have questions you can email Mica at

How it works:
Gather your unwanted or outgrown clothing and accessories and bring them the day of the swap. Join us at the Clothing Swap Table at lunch and trade with other Cornish members. Everyone is welcome to participate even if they don't bring anything to swap. Leftover materials will be donated

Clean out your closet and come enjoy some free shopping before winter break!
