Please join us in welcoming the newest members of our Cornell community at this year’s Student Send-Off!

Every year, local Cornell clubs across the country get together and host a Student Sendoff for incoming and current students and their parents. It’s a great way to welcome the new students, give them some sage advice from alumni who have learned the “tricks of the trade, and to all-around have a great time enjoying the end of the wonderful summer we have here in South Florida.

This event will be a “Backyard BBQ” style event, complete with a fully catered BBQ lunch. The BBQ meal, catered by a wonderful local caterer, will include mouth watering food and dessert. Additionally, we’ll be setting up some fun games, raffles for Cornell Store gift cards, and a little informal Q&A for anyone who has questions that others could benefit from hearing about. Especially as South Floridians, it is our duty to inform our fellow warm-blooded community how to dress warmly up there! Dress attire is casual and light, since there will be things set up outside. Also, please share this event announcement to any fellow Cornell alumni, as well as family and friends interested in attending as your guests.
