Reunion Registration

You can get additional details about child care, transportation, housing, university-sponsored events, and register for the weekend at alumni.cornell.edu/reunion.

To take advantage of the special early bird discount rates, your registration must be submitted online by midnight EST on May 10.  And as a special treat, the first 30 classmates to register will receive their choice of a special souvenir upon arrival at class headquarters.

We are working hard to create a Reunion that captures the spirit of the Class of 2001. To that end, we are collecting information about your Cornell experience which will be incorporated into our class Reunion programming. Please assist us in these efforts by completing our class registration survey. A link to the survey will be included in your registration confirmation e-mail. And as a thank you, every classmate who completes a survey will be entered into a raffle to receive one of two $100 gift certificates to the Cornell Campus Store.

Didn’t receive an e-mail or postcard with reunion details? This means we don’t have your current contact information. You can update your contact information here.

Don't want to register online?  While we encourage online registration, you can download a printable form here.

Reunion Campaign

As Cornell's annual fundraising program, the Cornell Annual Fund has the mission to reach out to as many alumni as possible and to raise unrestricted support for the university and its colleges and academic units. Cornell Annual Fund gifts are vital to the health and continued growth of the entire university.

State and endowment funding covers only part of what the university needs each year to continue offering the outstanding programs, student aid, and faculty development that is Cornell's hallmark. The gap between a dean or director's budget line and the college or unit's actual need-that margin of excellence-is covered each year by Annual Fund gifts.

Every five years, each Cornell alumni class returns to campus in June to renew friendships and reconnect to Cornell. Many alumni make special Cornell Annual Fund gifts to celebrate what their Cornell education has done for them.

The Class of 2001’s goal is to raise $450,000 to support the Annual Fund.

If you are interested in contributing to the Annual Fund or becoming a member of the Tower Club, please contact one of our Annual Fund Representatives, Sarah Binder at sbinder@gmail.com or Lora Epstein at loraepstein@gmail.com.

Become a Class Officer

Lastly, we are looking for classmates to serve as class officers for the 2016-2021 term. Class officer elections will be held during Reunion. Information about class officer roles can be found below. If you are interested in serving, please contact our Nominations Chair, Nathan Connell at nconnell@gmail.com.
