The Big Idea: Cornell Celebrates 150

Boston: Are you in?

Cornell's big 150 bash is coming to Boston! Get ready to paint the town Big Red with such spirit that Ezra himself would kick up his heels and lift the chorus.

To make this an extra-special event, our 150 celebration will be happening during the Cornell Alumni Leadership Conference weekend in Boston.

We have just sold out, but you can request to be placed on the wait-list by contacting the Office of Alumni Affairs at 607-254-5102 or jdc362@cornell.edu.
