This year’s Reunion festivities brought a record-breaking 5,768 alumni, plus more than 2,200 family and friends, to the Hill for a weekend of reminiscing, touring campus, catching up with classmates, and much more. Several classes set attendance records, including ’59 (which drew 151 members for their 60th) and ’14 (which had 964 at its 5th). For the twentieth consecutive year, the University held a 75th Reunion—and eight members of the Class of ’44 attended. The Glee Club welcomed nearly 300 alumni for its first-ever Reunion; the Johnson School drew a record 502; and the Law School saw more than a quarter of the Class of ’59 come back for their 60th (not to mention a third of the Class of ’69 for their 50th). Cornellians returned to the Hill from around the country—forty-seven states, plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.—and the world, with thirty-three foreign countries represented. As announced at Cornelliana Night, the Reunion class campaigns raised more than $149 million. To view some of the festivities that were live-streamed over the weekend, go to live.alumni.cornell.edu.
