Cornell Club of San Diego

A Message From the President

Greetings Alumni, Students and Parents!

I would like to introduce you to the Cornell Club of San Diego and to invite you to join our organization. The purpose of our club is to provide Cornell alumni that reside in San Diego County a broad range of activities for maintaining a meaningful connection with our alma mater. Your membership and participation in the club will provide you with a great opportunity to network with alumni, meet old friends, make new acquaintances, and support Cornell.

Now is the time to become a member or to renew your membership. Your membership dues help to support all of our outreach activities to alumni, current students on the Hill, and local high school students who are interested in attending Cornell. Additionally, these funds are used to support our scholarships for current Cornell students from the San Diego area.

We are planning several great events this year including a number of social, cultural and educational activities. For the most up to date and detailed information on all events, please send an email to and ask to be added to the Club's distribution list. This will ensure that you receive club information in a timely manner.

If you have any ideas for a great event, or if you would like to become involved in organizing activities, please call me at 858-259-4549. Our club is run entirely by our local alumni and we welcome your assistance.

I look forward to seeing you at our next event. Go Big Red!
