Thanksgiving is next week and COVID has us feeling a bit less in the spirit of the holiday as we all keep adjusting to this new, strange normal. But there are some things out there for which we can be thankful.
Cornell has completed the in-person semester as planned and to much national praise for its handling of the virus. Our alma mater has made us proud with its students, faculty and administration all working together.
The University has organized and shares many “experiences”–Big Red cures for the COVID blues!
Cornell, virtually, welcomed us all back with StayHomecoming 2020. It featured a COVID discussion with Dr. Anthony Fauci ’66 and Kate Snow ’91 and current Cornell students, President Pollack’s State of the University, a discussion on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s ’54 influence on the world, and other fun digital events. Relive them here.
American Studies lecturer/unofficial Cornell historian Corey Earle ’07 invites us to enjoy his webinars and lectures. Watch here and sign up for alerts.
Announcements from Cornell about future events are arriving in your inbox fast and furiously–don’t hit delete. They contain information and links to sign up for interesting discussions and webinars like these and the ones above.
Especially in this season, reach out through call and virtual meetings to your old friends from your days on the hill or the new ones you’ve made at reunions or other events. Keep your Cornell connections strong. And look for a post-Thanksgiving email about a Cornell Global on-line party with a special Class of ’74 get together on December 12th.
I hope you and your loved ones are all well and finding a way to celebrate Thanksgiving and the holiday season.
Happy Thanksgiving and please be well!
