There are many opportunities for parents to get involved with Cornell. We hope that this page helps you to discover the forms of involvement that are best for you.
Big Red Athletics
On July 8, the Ivy League announced that its member institutions would not hold intercollegiate athletics events and competitions prior to the end of the fall 2020 semester. The status of the remaining winter and spring sports schedules, as well as whether fall sports events and competitions may resume in the spring, will be determined at a later date. Please visit cornellbigred.com for updates.
Due to public health and safety concerns, visitors are prohibited from entering any campus facilities during the fall semester, and therefore will not be allowed to attend in-person concerts, meetings and lectures. In some cases, these events will be live-streamed and/or recorded for off-campus audiences. Visit events.cornell.edu to learn more.
Alumni events such as Homecoming will be held virtually, and campus tours for prospective students and their families will continue to be virtual only.
