Be sure to check out 150.cornell.edu—the new website launched just prior to Trustee/Council Annual Meeting and Homecoming Weekend to help Cornellians celebrate the university’s Sesquicentennial.
The site is a gathering place for sharing the stories, images, and activities that are shaping the celebrations of Cornell communities across the globe.
It is intended to spark Sesquicentennial spirit among all Cornellians—alumni, friends, students, families, faculty, and staff—and encourage their participation in the celebrations, virtual and live, near and far.
Here’s an overview of several main features of the site:
Events Information about Sesquicentennial celebrations: regional celebrations around the world, Charter Day Weekend events on the Ithaca campus, and more
Gallery A multimedia gallery where you can browse the experiences and memories about Cornell that fellow Cornellians have shared, and a Share your Story submission form where Cornellians can submit photographs, stories, and video in celebration of the university’s first 150 years. An opportunity to sing the Alma Mater with the Cornell Global Choir
