Class of 2016

Members of the Class of ’16!

The Senior Gift Campaign is your chance to make an impact on the Hilltop. At Cornell’s core is a tradition of philanthropy, and every year we encourage the senior class to come together and build on that tradition.

By participating in Senior Gift Campaign you are helping to provide future Cornellians with the same unique opportunities you had.

All Gifts made to the senior gift campaign goes to the Cornell Scholars Program to name a scholarship and that will be awarded to a deserving Cornell student in 2016-217.

President Brand is offering a $2,000 challenge to the Class of 2016. For every 34 senior donors he will add $500 to our overall gift up to $2,000. You can help us reach our goal of 134 seniordonors (50% of the class)  by making a gift to the Senior Gift Campaign Today!

Caucus, Cornell!

It’s an exciting time to be a student in Iowa!

If you weren’t aware yet, a super important event is happening on Monday night: Iowa’s First-In-The-Nation Caucuses!

[Learn more about the process with this video:]

This is an excellent opportunity to take part in the civic process and show support for the candidate you support.

All Cornell students are eligible to participate as long as you register to vote as either a Democrat or Republican in the state of Iowa beforehand. If you haven’t registered yet, you can register at the site of your party’s caucus by 6 pm with some form of identification and proof of Iowa residency (any mailing that you’ve received in your mailbox on campus will do!). You can also just observe if you don’t want to participate.



REPUBLICANS will caucus in the Cornell College gym. Arrive by 6:30, as doors will shut at 7 pm.

DEMOCRATS will caucus at the Mt. Vernon High School Commons. Arrive by 6:30, as doors will shut at 7 pm. If you’re already registered, you can take the shuttle to the location by signing up here.

Questions can be directed to Katie Wilson (kwilson) in the Civic Engagement Center!
