Cornell Reception

Thank you for joining us for the 2023 Big Red gathering in Austin to network with Cornellians visiting for SXSW and local to Austin! We cheered those presenting at the conference and celebrated being together in Austin. A special thank you to Professor Britney Schmidt for joining us to share the latest from Cornell. We can’t wait to CU next year!
