Welcome to the Cornell Club of Greater Philadelphia!


About the Cornell Club of Greater Philadelphia

~ Welcoming ~ Connecting ~ Engaging ~

Hello, Cornellians, Family and Friends!

Welcome!  The Cornell Club of Greater Philadelphia ("Club") does not have any dues; simply register for and attend an event!  Indeed, we hope that all Cornellians, family and friends feel comfortable and invited.  Even if you do not know anyone on the guest list, the Board members will try to make you feel right at home. 

The Club’s goal is to provide opportunities for all Cornell alumni, family and friends in the Philadelphia and Greater Philadelphia area to connect with each other and with Cornell University, and to make a positive impact in the Philadelphia area, through a range of social, cultural, athletic, educational, professional development, and public service activities.  The Club aims to encourage its members to discover, develop and pursue their own interests and talents, while also engaging with the Philadelphia area community in general and with fellow Cornell alumni. 

With a full calendar of events, the Rumsey Scholarship and community service programs, and supporting Cornell alumni who interview Cornell applicants, the Club is one of the most active alumni groups in the country! 

I want to take a moment to recognize and thank the former President, Meagan Mackerer, for her excellent job leading the Board!

Thank you also to the wonderful Cornell volunteers who comprise the Club’s Board of Directors and make it all possible!  Please introduce yourself to these Board members at events, I am sure they will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope to see you soon!
