Give back to the Senior Class!

The Senior Class Campaign is focused on promoting the importance of philanthropy and giving back to Cornell. Cornell depends on the philanthropy of students and alumni to continue providing opportunities to the next generation of Cornellians. Our ultimate goal is to get 50% of Seniors to make a monetary gift to Cornell (or any department or student organization) before you graduate. So, we need your help!! Click here to make your gift to Cornell!

If you give a gift of $100+, you will receive an honor cord at graduation. Our Class of 2016 is only 25 gifts behind Class of 2015! Give your gift to Cornell or any department or student organization before you graduate at this following link:

Summer Ivy Playbook

Join 3,600 students from around the Ivy League and sign up for Summer Playbook to see who's around this summer.

Allowing you to find friends, housing, and adventure, Playbook is an entirely free and idealistic program with the sole purpose of connecting you with other students no matter where you are. Last year the program was used in 4,500 locations spread across 126 countries and 48 states with 70% of those locations having at least one other person in the same place. Playbook is supported by students at Harvard, Yale, Stanford Yale-NUS, Princeton, Dartmouth, Penn, Columbia, Cornell, MIT, Wellesley, NYU, Brown, Cambridge, and Oxford.

“Last summer, I interned in Muscat, Oman at an energy company. Summer Playbook allowed incoming Penn Freshmen to connect with me as I traveled.” --Riad, Penn

“I was able to snag a couch in NYC for a weekend when my plans fell through.” --Amanda, Brown

“When I went to live in Mauritius, I didn't really know anyone. Summer Playbook helped me get in touch someone 10,000 miles away from home!” --Sara, Harvard

Campus community shouldn't end at term time:
