40th Reunion – June 8-11, 2017


Our reunion committee is working on lots of special plans for reunion! We are staying in air-conditioned William Keeton House on West Campus.


Get ready to return to the Hill!
Look forward to Reunion favorites and our special class events:

  • Thursday night nostalgic Hot Truck dinner
  • Friday evening reception on Willard Straight Terrace, with classmates performing hits from the ’60s and ’70s (vocalists, percussionists, and other instrumentalists are still welcome)
  • Optional Saturday BBQ lunch at Beebe Beach followed by a presentation by our classmate Bill Nye at Bailey Hall
  • Saturday evening reception at the Big Red Barn and dinner at the Physical Sciences Building overlooking the Arts Quad
  • Sunday farewell brunch and a look ahead to our 45th Reunion in 2022
  • Plus highlights throughout the weekend like the Chorus and Glee Club Concert, Cornelliana Night, the Arts Quad Tents, and more

Ready to make travel arrangements?
Wonderful! Residence halls open at noon on Thursday and check-out is noon on Sunday. We’ll offer a range of pricing options, including full weekend, Friday/Saturday only, etc. Full details will come in late March when we send out registration information.

Definitely not going to make it?
Please let us know so we can save trees and money by removing your name from the registration mailing list: Visit alumni.cornell.edu/reunion or call us at 607-254-7013.
