During the month of April, about 5,000 admitted students and family members will visit campus as guests of Diversity Hosting Month and Cornell Days. The students will attend classes and stay overnight in residence halls. Groups of visitors will also take walking tours of campus.
“We hope you will join us in welcoming the students and their families to our campus,” said Shawn Felton, director of undergraduate admissions. “Some may be exploring college life for the first time, and Ithaca will be a new experience for many. Admitted students and their families will need help finding their way around campus and advice about local shops and restaurants. They may ask about the experience of living and learning here. Please take the time to answer their questions and share your enthusiasm for the Cornell and Ithaca communities.
“We understand this is a busy time of year,” Felton added, “so we appreciate your efforts to engage with our newly admitted students. Your friendly assistance will have an impact on how they feel about Cornell – and that will be very important as they decide whether to join our community.”
