Per tradition, Buffalo-area CAAAN (Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network) volunteers and all interested alumni of Cornell are invited to our annual CAAAN Kick-Off Dinner, to be held at Chef’s Restaurant in downtown Buffalo on Wednesday, November 13 at 6pm. While enjoying your choice of Chef’s delicious Italian specialties, you will have the chance to learn more about the CAAAN program (the program wherein alumni meet and talk with prospective students about the Cornell experience) while meeting other alumni and learning more about the Cornell admissions process.
Many alumni attest that their role as a CAAAN volunteer is one of the most rewarding activities one can do as a Cornellian!
For those who are new to the CAAAN program, please be sure to sign-up today at their website.
The cost for the dinner is $10 per person, and will include a selection of a main dish with salad, dessert, tea, and coffee. A cash bar will be available. Attendees have the choice of pre-ordering chicken cacciatore, lasagna with meat ball, or Chef’s famous spaghetti parmesan. Please register in advance.
For event questions, please contact Sarah Piskun at firstname.lastname@example.org.

2018 High Road Fellowship Mentorship Program
The inaugural High Road Fellowship Mentorship Program will match fellows with alumni through the Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo. Since 1880, Buffalo Cornellians have been actively supporting the University, and this presents another fantastic opportunity for our region to give back to Cornell.
Your commitment as a mentor will be to attend an orientation and meet at least twice during the summer with your assigned mentee. Mentors will serve as Buffalo ambassadors for the fellows and also provide consultation on academic and career paths.
Interested alumni should email Nicole Golias ’16 at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 30th 2018. Mentors will be assigned to students based on alignment to student background and interests. Please include:
- college and class year
- current (or most recent, if retired) profession
- city/town of residence
- any non-profit or board involvement
- any hobbies
- a brief statement (1-2 sentences) indicating why you would like to mentor a High Road Fellow this summer!

The Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo is proud to collaborate with Cornell in Buffalo affiliate the Partnership for the Public Good as they facilitate educational workshops throughout the community. The PPG is offering monthly budgeting and personal finance workshops for individual instruction and coaching. Participants receive one on one feedback and are able to work on personal financial goals – debt reduction, savings and retirement planning, or creating a monthly budget.
The PPG has asked for Cornell Alumni volunteers to assist as coaches – so that each participant can receive the personal attention of their own tutor. Volunteers will be given curriculum and coaching guides, to facilitate consistency among coaches. Volunteers may sign up monthly or sporadically for these 2 hour workshops.
