NYC Cornellians is the dues-free alumni organization in New York City (5 boroughs) that promotes fellowship, friendship, sociability and leadership among alumni, students, parents and friends. NYC Cornellians' purpose is to foster and strengthen constituents' relationships among each other and their affinity to Cornell. 

Through events, community outreach and broad engagement, NYC Cornellians aims to extend the influence of Cornell University in New York City.


The easy, two-step process:

1) Reside or work in NYC

2) Tell Cornell that you reside in NYC by going to cornellconnect.cornell.edu and updating your mailing address

Cornell alumni living in NYC are automatically members of NYC Cornellians — no dues, no paperwork, no hassles.

Alumni from the greater NYC area (New Jersey, Connecticut, Westchester), other regions, students, parents, staff and faculty have the option to 'opt-in' and will be considered members of NYC Cornellians without obligation to pay dues. To opt-in, please email nyccornellians@cornell.edu.
