Join Cornell Tech on Wednesday, March 16, for a 10th Anniversary Giving Day Soirée at the Cornell Club – New York with food, drinks, and friends.
We will celebrate Cornell Tech’s first 10 years, salute alumni
leadership and long-term vision, and look forward to building our
school’s future together.
In 2011, the Cornell Club, a home in Midtown for Cornellians of all
