Top A Lister
The Cornell Vietnamese Association is an organization that promotes awareness, appreciation, and education of Vietnamese culture and heritage across the Cornell and Ithaca communities. In addition to creating a platform on which their members can learn about and understand Vietnamese culture, we provide those interested in Vietnamese culture a forum to discuss issues pertaining to Vietnamese communities. Throughout the year, they have various events and activities for our members and community that focus on one or more of our three pillars: education, service, and culture.
This Sunday they held their annual Pho Night which included bounteous Pho catered by Saigon Kitchen as well as springrolls and Vietnamese coffee. In addition, there was also cultural performances by Cornell Lion Dance, Illuminations, and Quintessence.

How To Remove Yourself From A Listserv
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.
