Each year MCFAB works to build Cornell's Multicultural community through performing arts and concert events. Last year, they brought Young Thug to campus and are currently looking for entertainers to sponsor this year. In order to incorporate your input into the entertainers they select, they ask that you fill out this survey to so your voice can be heard.
We are seeking volunteers to facilitate at the DWDM on Friday October 21st from 5-7pm. This DWDM is centered around mental health in college communities. Kai Roberts is our main speaker for this event. His presentation for the evening will be, "Active Mic: Mental Health through Music." It is an original interactive performance created to promote mental health awareness in an entertaining and educational way.
Sign up to facilitate here!
(* There will not be a training, so you must have been a facilitator before)

We look for a diverse group of guides who reflect the entire Cornell experience, which means we're looking for guides just like you!
We will be holding two information sessions on how to apply on 10/4 (in Stimson G01) and 10/5 (in McGraw 165) - both at 4:45pm. Please shoot us an email so we can send along details!

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.
