Homecoming 2008 update

Posted by nmg1 on September 18, 2008

We survived a mini-heat wave here in Ithaca this past weekend, but the weather seems to have cooled off, sending us a string of sunny, 70-degree days. With any luck, this will hold true for Homecoming weekend, which will be held the weekend of September 26-28. Cornell will be hosting a variety of activities for alumni of all years, including the All-Alumni Tailgate on Saturday, September 27, from 11 am – 1 pm in the Crescent parking lot. This is a great chance to meet up with alumni from all classes, but this year it will also be a chance to meet your classmates!  The Class of 1996 will be hosting a table at the All-Alumni Tailgate tent, so please stop by, enjoy the complimentary food, beverages, and musical entertainment, and connect with your classmates.

If you cannot make it this weekend, there are plenty of ways you can connect with fellow ‘96ers. Our Class website will be listing upcoming events for all regions, so please check it out!

In addition, we have group pages on Facebook and LinkedIn.  Class of 1996 events will be posted on both sites, so please join or check them often to learn about the events that the Class of 1996 is planning this year. Feel free to post pictures and news to the Facebook page, and look for Homecoming pictures soon!
