Countdown to our 5th Reunion! - Cornell Alumni
5 th R e u n i o n
JUNE 4–7, 2015
Countdown to our 5th Reunion!
o you remember prelims, problem sets, and the stress of final
exams? How about trudging to 8:00 a.m. classes in the snow,
studying in library basements, or feeling like you might never
catch up on your class readings? We’re returning to Ithaca this
June for our 5th Reunion to do NONE of these things. Reunion is all
about the parts of Cornell that you loved—the friends, the campus,
the camaraderie, and the partying. Forget the stress. Forget the
snow and the prelims and the hills. We’re returning to Ithaca this
June 4–7 to do nothing but relive the good times!
Special accommodations – Please indicate if you’ll need
handicap access, cribs, etc.
Spouse/partner accommodations – The majority of rooms
in Clara Dickson Hall are single rooms. This means that some
couples may not be roomed together
Overflow housing – Our overflow housing is Balch Hall and
Low Rise 7. If you prefer a quieter place to stay, please indicate this
in your request
Registration is now open! Make sure to sign up before May 10 to
receive the early bird rates. Below are a few things you might want
to know to make the most of your return home to Cornell.
Friday: Class of ’10 Wine Tour (10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) –
Sign up early to get a seat on one of the buses! There is a cap of
220 people; first come, first served.

Clara Dickson Hall will be our home base for the weekend. Most
of our meals and activities will take place in the tents right outside

All housing requests must be received by May 10 to be considered. We’ll do our best to accommodate your requests, but no
requests are guaranteed.

Please make sure each person lists the other group members in
their request.
Saturday: Class of ’10 Reception (5:30 – 6:30 p.m.) – Join
us under the headquarter tent as we welcome the new class officers, hear about current and future plans, and share a toast to our
amazing class!
We’ve got a whole committee working hard to make sure our 5th
Reunion is an absolutely unforgettable weekend—but it will only
be as amazing as the classmates who join us. We need your help
getting the word out! Here’s what you can do:
• “Like” the Class of 2010 Facebook Page
• Let your friends know you’ve registered on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #CUReun10n
• Send an e-postcard letting friends know you’ll be at Reunion (
• Reach out to your affinity networks (Greek, athletics, student organizations, etc.) to promote Reunion.
Can’t wait to see you all in Ithaca this summer!

We can try! You may request to room near someone when you register. We want to make our
Reunion a great time for everyone and we will try our best to accommodate all requests for
housing. Please keep in mind that we have a large class, so accommodating all requests will
be difficult. We will give priority to those who are staying for a minimum of two nights. Only
members of your group who register by May 10 and who mutually request each other will be
I have special medical or mobility needs—is it practical for me to stay in the residence halls?
Yes! To communicate specific medical or mobility needs, contact your class registration chair by
May 24.
Are there hotel rooms available in Ithaca during Reunion?
A limited number of rooms in several hotels have been blocked for alumni returning to Cornell.
Please keep in mind that availability may be limited at this point. Review the hotel information on
the Cornell Reunion website, and call your favorite hotel directly for a reservation on a first-come,
first served basis. Be sure to ask for the Reunion block.
Our goal is to have every classmate make a gift to Cornell as part of our Reunion campaign. Each
gift to Cornell, regardless of the amount or designation, counts in our class totals and helps support
today’s Cornellians. You can make your gift by visiting, or by calling the Cornell
Annual Fund at 1-800-279-3099. Please make your gift today since we plan to announce our class
totals during Reunion Weekend and we want to make sure to include your gift.
