Cornell College Events

Wednesday, November 1st

Time Event Title
11:30 am-12:45 pmMaking and Keeping Connections Shaw
This workshop is sponsored by Rise Up, the program for first-generation students, and is designed for first-years. Cornell can offer a network of support and mentoring that will last a lifetime, and developing this network can begin in the first year. We will offer ideas about how to connect with faculty and other professionals at Cornell. Connections at home can sometimes be challenging, especially for first-generation students. Sometimes friends or family members don’t understand the demands at Cornell. Students far from home can regret that they are missing out on social activities of friends who are attending college closer to home and family gatherings. This session will provide an opportunity to share experiences and communication strategies. Though this event is sponsored by Rise Up, any first-year student is welcome to attend. For further information, contact Faculty Director Sue Astley at sastley@cornellcollege.edu or x4450.
5:00 pm-6:00 pmGerman Stammtisch Hilltop Café
A Stammtisch is a dinner table around which friends join for fun and conversation. At Cornell, our Stammtisch meets in the dining hall (look for the German flag) every Wednesday evening from 5-6 p.m. and offers you the chance to speak and listen to some German. All abilities are welcome! Come and enjoy!
