Some things are better together: extracurriculars @ Cornell

When students returned to campus this fall, they were looking forward to their classes—and to the full range of events and activities that make Cornell Cornell. From beekeeping to roller skating to rowing on the lake, students were excited to come back together for their favorite extracurriculars.

For many groups, fall 2021 is the first time they have been able to meet in-person in more than a year. As Cornell athletes return to practices and competitions, and Big Red fans return to cheer on their teams, these in-person experiences are at the heart of students’ college careers.

Across Cornell’s campuses, our students have demonstrated their ongoing commitment to protecting public health as they’ve adapted to changing circumstances. Here, we share how some groups on campus are keeping their members safe, as they get together, build community, and have fun doing the things they love.

We hope you enjoy hearing from student leaders in Cornell Quad Squad, Cornell Rowing, Magic Society at Cornell, CU Cyphers, Pandora Dance Troupe, Big Red Marching Band, Bee Club, and Cornell Origins Urban Life Development, as they share their extracurricular stories.
