Cornell Women’s Network: Coffee with Cornellians November 2018
November 15, 2018 @ 11:00 am
Belle Mead, NJ
Dear Alumnae: what a thrill it was for me, as one of three Cornell sisters, to pull up to North Campus this August and unload the haul from Bed, Bath & Beyond that had been accumulating on our dining room table for our daughter Juliaâ€™s move-in! Some things on campus are remarkably the same; in other ways, itâ€™s very much a 21st-century Cornell.
To celebrate the second year of â€œCoffee with Cornelliansâ€* in central New Jersey, I am delighted to welcome you to our home in Belle Mead. Our inaugural co-host Monique van Pearlstein â€˜81 will have updates from the Trustee Council meeting held in Ithaca earlier in the month, as will I from the First-Year Family Weekend in October. We both look forward to carrying on the welcoming and thoughtful conversations with terrific alumnae in our communities that have become a hallmark of our â€œcoffees.â€

*About Coffee with Cornellians:
We know that home-based moms, professionals with alternative working hours, and retired alumnae cannot always fit Cornellâ€™s evening and weekend events into their schedules. Our mid-morning Coffee with Cornellians events offer opportunities for networking and intelligent conversation on relevant topics that you can drop in on after getting the kids to school, after exercise, before or after work or volunteer activities. We host three Coffee with Cornellians over the year, including an update on Cornell today and focusing on a topic of particular interest to alumnae in our community. Join us!
