Are you looking to make some new friends in the area? Maybe you’re looking for a new activity partner, or someone to collaborate with on your new passion project. Or, maybe you’re even looking for a date for Valentine’s Day. What better way than by meeting others through speed connecting with NYC Cornellians and The Cornell Club- New York?

Join us at The Cornell Club for a fun evening of meeting new people while enjoying great food and drinks. You will also take part in an activity using the famed “36 questions that lead to love” to help you find your new best friend. 

You will also complete an activity (backed by relationship science!) to help form connections with other attendees. You will meet new people and have a lot of fun while doing so.
