THE CORNELL CLASS OF 1978
A Message from the Class President
Dear Fellow '78 Classmates!
Save the Dates:
Class of ’78 Reunion Kickoff Weekend! - June 3-4
Our 45th Reunion is just around the corner! Join your classmates in person in NYC for two very special reunion kickoff events.
Friday, June 3:
The Class of ’78 Knickerbocker Rooftop Reception
(5:30 to 8:00 p.m.)
Meet up on the St. Cloud rooftop terrace of the historic Knickerbocker Hotel overlooking Times Square (easy walking distance from Grand Central, Penn Station or the Port Authority). At this Beaux-Arts style venue where Caruso lived and F. Scott Fitzgerald met Zelda, gather with your classmates over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Reconnect, and relive some history of your own from a perch on the 17th floor as New York eases into its weekend below.
Contact Mary Bowler Jones or 302-252-1729.
Saturday, June 4
The Class of ’78 Baseball Benefit Bash - Yankees vs. Detroit
(Suite opens at 12:30 p.m. - game at 1:05)
Join your classmates to renew friendships, make new ones and hear the crack of the bats in Yankee Stadium. We’ll enjoy the Bronx Bombers taking on the Detroit Tigers (hope to have a few Detroit area alumni make the trip) from a reserved suite overlooking the field (complete with ballpark food and beverages). Best of all,100% of every ticket purchase benefits our Class of 1978 Memorial Scholarship. (Please note – ticket price is not tax deductible.)
Contact Jeanne Arnold or 631-655-2663.
We know classmates based in the greater New York area are most likely to attend, but we encourage all classmates to visit New York to join us for a beautiful spring weekend in the city.
Look for details and registration info coming soon!

Things have changed for the Cornell Alumni community with the creation of a new digital communications hub called Cornellians which debuted in July 2021. In addition to a full range of interesting articles, you can also find the Class Notes and In Memoriam pages. Alumni no longer have the option to subscribe to Cornell Alumni Magazine with their dues payment. The May/June 2021 issue was the last printed issue of the magazine.
