About Cornell Alumni Magazine

Cornell Alumni Magazine was founded by alumni in 1899 and has been sustained and supported by alumni ever since. Published bi-monthly, it connects alumni, students, faculty, and parents to the University. Each issue has 100 pages of engaging stories, in-depth features, Class Notes, short profiles about Cornell and Cornellians, Big Red Sports, alumni authors, and more.

Our mission, laid out in 1899:

The objects of THE ALUMNI NEWS will be threefold: First, to reflect faithfully and especially for alumni the present life at the University — both in Ithaca and New York among both Faculty and students. In this we have been promised the hearty co-operation of the members of the Medical College in New York.

Secondly, to keep the alumni accurately informed concerning the attitude of the University body, students and Faculty, toward the various questions of University policy. Athletics will of course receive its due share of attention, and questions of general University economy will not be neglected.

Thirdly,–and this is perhaps the most important of all, –to keep the alumni informed as fully and as accurately as possible about the whereabouts and doings of Cornell men and women and thus not only to foster the interest in classmates and Alma Mater, but also to increase the enthusiasm and loyalty of every Cornellian for the college on the hill.

As an independent publication, the bulk of our operating dollars come from duespaying and subscribing alumni. Support your magazine, and hold Cornell in your hands six times a year — subscribe today!
