Come back to Cornell

Ithaca is a place like no other. Revisiting Cornell and Ithaca–there are so many reasons!


You are a Cornellian for life! We want to help you network professionally, grow intellectually, engage socially, and give back to the university’s many communities.

Our office is here to connect you—and alumni worldwide—with the university and with other Cornellians. A vibrant team of Alumni Affairs specialists, we work with thousands of volunteers to support Cornell-centered communities: graduation classes, regional clubs, diverse communities, and affinity groups. We also work with established alumni boards. For general inquires, email us at
