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 this 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.
