Homecoming 2015: September 18–20Click here to register »
Another Big Weekend is upon us: the formal dedication of the new Edgemoor, after more than a year of construction and more than a decade of planning. The inauguration of Dr. Elizabeth Garrett at the 13th President of Cornell University takes place on Friday, with festivities capping Cornell's Sesquicentennial Year.
Schedule of Events
The Construction Committee will make its report to the alumni association, and as work concludes on the first phase of construction, work begins on making the second phase and the restoration of the Grand Stair a reality. But first, we can take a weekend to celebrate our accomplishments, and, in Fisch’s words, “hang up our hats, get out our old pipes and be boys once more.”
For more information about the event, contact Mark Fernau '82, Alumni President, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
