Event Details


Mark your calendar; reserve your lodgings and book the ferry! Cornell will be on Martha’s Vineyard, MA on the week of August 6, 2023 for “Cornell on the Vineyard”! A variety of programs are offered throughout the week like the welcome reception hosted by Deborah Arrindell ’79 on Monday evening, the beach picnic on Thursday and engaging faculty speakers.

Please share this announcement with your Cornell network. Many Cornellians vacation on Cape Cod & the Islands, and we would like them all to know this event is happening. If you are in the area at the time, I hope you can attend one or more of the events. The programs are also “ferry friendly” so consider attending if you are not staying on the Vineyard.

You can read more about this event in this article by the Cornell Chronicle.
