Jesus in The Confessional

“Jesus in the Confessional”, Wed. Feb. 25, at 3:30 in Allee Chapel

Joe Jennison’s one-man show “Jesus in the Confessional” is a 20-minute play chronicling Jennison’s return to the Catholic Church after more than 30 years away. Jennison uses the piece to tell his personal experience as a gay man, feeling rejected by his church growing up, but ultimately making his way back to faith after encountering Jesus in a confessional booth, and how that experience brought him back to church. The brief play will be followed by Cornell’s chaplain facilitating students, faculty, staff, and others as they share from their own experiences concerning their spiritual identities and journey as glbta persons and their allies. The event is free and open to the public.
~Co-sponsors: The Theatre Department, The Religion Department, Alliance, Student Theatre Council, Spiritus, Interfaith Understanding & Exploration, and The Social Justice Initiative (Offices of Chaplain & Spiritual Life, Intercultural Life, and Civic Engagement).

Block 5: Recap!

As second semester continues in full swing on the Hilltop, something new and exciting is happening every day at Cornell College! That’s why we wanted to take a look back on some of the highlights from Block 5:

The Big Event!



Every other year, Cornell College, with the help of generous support from the Rich and Marlene Williams Fund and Student Senate, is able to bring a BIG EVENT to campus! This year Cornell welcomed the band New Politics, and the concert was a great success for everyone who came out! Bringing prime entertainment to you – just another reason why Cornell really is the best.

Greek Life: Welcoming New Members



Over the Block Break following Block 5, Cornell’s 7 fraternities and 8 sororities welcomed in their new members, the pledge classes of 2015. Unique from national Greek organizations, Greek life at Cornell is an enriching experience that approximately 20% of the student body chooses to participate in. An exciting time on campus, Cornell hopes these new Greeks enhance their leadership skills, involvement in community service and philanthropy, and gain friendships that last beyond their years on the Hilltop.

First Year Residence Hall Renovations



Are you ready to be the first class at Cornell to live on campus with all of the First Year Residence Halls renovated, Class of 2019?!  The makeovers for Pauley Hall (pictured here) have already been completed, with Rorem, Tarr, and Dows underway, and will be finished upon your arrival in August 2015. These upgrades are sure to make upperclassmen envious — who said First Years couldn’t be living large on campus, too? Not Cornell!
