Cornell is here for you

Alumni return to Cornell for a variety of reasons. Some hop on the bus to gather with friends at Homecoming, while some cross the ocean for Reunion. Some arrive with their teenage children who are thinking about attending Cornell, and some come back virtually, to use the library or listen to a thought-provoking lecture via livestream.

Whenever you return, we invite you to take a tour of campus and see what’s new and what has stayed the same. Visit the Dairy Bar, stroll through the Cornell Botanic Gardens, or drop in on your favorite professor. Come back any time—Cornell is here for you.

Let your Big Red spirit shine

Cornell traditions

Join in the International Spirit of Zinck’s Night or listen to your favorite Cornell song.  No matter where you are, you can celebrate Cornell.


Each fall, the Cornell community gathers to reconnect with old friends and make new memories. Make plans now to come home to Cornell.


In the second week of June, the university pulls out the stops to showcase the very best of Cornell with alumni and their families and friends. Reminisce, reconnect, and join us at Reunion.
