Welcome to a new year with the Cornell Club of Northern New Jersey.
The intent of our club is to maintain ties between Northern New Jersey
alumni, parents, and friends and Cornell University through volunteer
service, faculty speaker events, networking, scholarship funding, and a
wide variety of social activities for all ages and demographics.
past year was a big year for our club. It centered around our Charter
Day sesquicentennial celebration in April. Through that event we were
able to raise enough money to donate to our scholarship fund, which goes
toward helping a student from NJ.
2015-2016 calendar year is just getting started with the Student
Send-off on August 16 and the Freshman Book Read in September (two
locations: Westfield and Glen Rock). We have an exciting year planned
including the Richard Meier Model Museum in September, a holiday party
at the Ridgewood Culinary Studio, and a family friendly event at the
Stirling Mine, plus many more. Of course we’ll be repeating old
favorites such as Zinck’s night, the Cornell hockey game at Madison
Square Garden, faculty speakers, and our business networking series:
Martinis & Mingling. You can check Cornell Connect to see upcoming events.
continue to remain dues-free, so all alumni in northern New Jersey are
club members. In order for us to reach such a large membership base, all
club communications are now electronic. Ongoing e-mails of activities
and events are sent out by the club as well as by the regional alumni
office in New York, so make sure that Cornell has your most up-to-date
e-mail address. In addition, information may be found on the CCNNJ website or our Facebook page.
welcome new volunteers to propose and assist with events or serve as
club officers. In fact, we are actively looking for members in Bergen,
Sussex, and Warren counties to join the board. If you would like to
volunteer, please contact any of the officers or members of the Board of
Governors for more information.
Are you in? We hope to CU soon!
