About the Cornell Club of Wisconsin


Welcome to the Cornell Club of Wisconsin

We are an alumni club serving all Wisconsin residents and visitors who have Cornell connections.  The club sponsors educational, social, networking and community service events that strengthen the bond between local alumni and the University, foster camaraderie with fellow Cornellians, and build the visibility of Cornell in the community.  The club also plays an important role in helping the University to recruit new students, and provides scholarships to highly qualified Cornell students.

Please check out our Calendar for many exciting events throughout the year.  Our club uses a ‘Dues Free’ approach, so all alumni in Wisconsin are automatically members of the club.  We hope to see you at a Cornell Club of Wisconsin event soon!  For exciting news from the Hill and up-to-date info on club events visit our Cornell in Wisconsin Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/CornellinWisco/

Kathy’s House is a “Hospital Hospitality House”, created in memory of Kathy Vogel Kuettner, a young wife and mother of three whose battle with an aggressive form of lymphoma ended with her death in July 2000. Ultimately, Kathy House’s mission is to be a “Home Away from Home” for a family or family member in need of hospital care in the Milwaukee Area.

Message from the President

Dear Wisconsin Cornellians,

On behalf of the Cornell Club of Wisconsin and its Board of Directors, a dedicated group of alumni volunteers that organize local activities that continue and maintain the “Big Red” spirit of charity, friendship, and fellowship beyond the Ithaca borders, we welcome you to the CCoW’s website!

Together with our sister club in Madison, we are your Wisconsin source for all Cornell related news and events. Here you will find the latest and updated club information and activities!   

 The Cornell Club of Wisconsin focuses on serving the needs and interest of the “Big Red” family of alumni, students, parents, and friends located here in Wisconsin.  As a diverse group of 1,500 strong that span various generations, we attempt to provide a little bit of something Cornell here in the Badger State! 

We host and sponsor various events and activities that include community service, business networking, prospective student interviewing, educational and cultural forums, culinary shows cases, and every year; we continue the longstanding CU tradition of celebrating the “Spirit of Theodore Zinck.”  Also, through our various fundraising efforts, we have long maintained a scholarship program that supports Wisconsin Cornellians presently studying at CU.

Whether you are new to the area or a lifelong resident, we would love to hear from you. We are always looking to improve by providing activities and events to this diverse membership. If you have any ideas and would like to get involved, please reach out to the officers, directors and event coordinators listed on the Community tab of this website; we always welcome suggestions, comments, and feedback.
