Plan an Event

We challenge all of our members to help plan and lead an event to make sure that there is always a Cornell party going on. Our group has put together formal and casual events at many bars and restaurants throughout the DFW area.

Please contact our Social Events Coordinators directly, since our officers could always use help hosting happy hours and luncheons. These types of events are great venues for recent graduates or new Texans to get to know the area. There's no cost to be a host and you will get to meet new friends.

Help Us Serve the Community

This is a great way for families to get involved with the Cornell community. In the past, our group has been involved in widely-attended events, including the Plano Susan G. Komen walk, Uptown Katy Trail run, and the Dallas March of Dimes walk.

If you are active in any community service projects and think Cornell could help make a difference, or if you would like to introduce CAANT to a new organization, please feel free to contact our Community Service Chair directly. Let's show DFW that Cornell cares.


Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network (CAAAN)

The Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network (CAAAN), consists of nearly 4,000 volunteers organized into about 300 committees in the United States and many other countries. It assists the Cornell admissions community in meeting this primary goal:

Identifying and attracting applicants whose academic performance and abilities indicate a strong chance for success; whose interests represent the breadth of academic programs at Cornell; whose personal qualities and achievement in non-academic areas could maintain or improve the quality of life at Cornell; and who come from a wide spectrum of geographic areas, socio-economic backgrounds, and racial/ethnic groups.

CAAAN members are involved in a variety of activities designed to meet this goal: Encouraging academically qualified and interesting students to consider Cornell as a place to continue their education. Developing and maintaining contacts at local secondary schools, especially with guidance counselors or college advisors, and with community agencies that work with underrepresented minority students. Personalizing the admissions process through contacts with candidates for admission, answering questions, and providing a positive perspective on the University. Providing information about applicants to the admission selection committees. Encouraging students accepted for admission to attend the University.
