Call for Nominations

Ever wonder who is behind the Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo? We are a group of Cornellians from all colleges, degrees, and class years — ’73 to ’16 and many in between! We would love to have YOU join our team to bring new events and ideas for ways to bring Cornellians together.

From event planning, website management, budgeting, social media, and more, there’s probably a way for you to get involved with Cornell, the Buffalo community, and other alumni.

Interested? Please reach out to our club president, R. Kent Roberts, Law ’94 (KRoberts@hodgsonruss.comwith why you’re interested in the club. 

Elections are held at our annual meeting and Cornell faculty speaker event, which is May 7th 2018. Save the date, more details coming soon.

February Book Club

Cuddle up this February with a good read and gather to discuss on February 13th. Host Terri Zelasko has selected Strangers in Their Own Land by Arlie Russell Hochschild.

“The renowned sociologist Arlie Hochschild embarks on a thought-provoking journey from her liberal hometown of Berkeley, California, deep into Louisiana bayou country―a stronghold of the conservative right. As she gets to know people who strongly oppose many of the ideas she famously champions, Hochschild nevertheless finds common ground and quickly warms to the people she meets―among them a Tea Party activist whose town has been swallowed by a sinkhole caused by a drilling accident―people whose concerns are actually ones that all Americans share: the desire for community, the embrace of family, and hopes for their children.”
