Welcome to the Alumni Class of 1971


Cornell friends ...

Back then, they were our classmates, confidantes, roommates, witnesses to important moments. Now, they are the stuff of our fondest memories. They'll always be part of us.

Nostalgia project:

We started a time line to highlight some of the  more momentus events of our undergraduate years. This will be a project that culminates with our Reunion in June. Visit this section now so you can help us build this collection of facts and pictures. We need your help developing an historic time line for our undergraduate years.

Old favorites remain:

You can quickly access the online Cornell Alumni Directory to reconnect with your friends using the "Find Alumni" tab above. You can share with the current university your success by investigating the many giving opportunities or by supporting Cornell's major capital initiatives. Of course we want your help supporting the Class of '71 by paying your dues. Check out the close up "Hi Mom!" setting for the CU Live web cam overlooking Ho Plaza and Willard Straight Hall.
