Picnic for Entering Freshmen

July 22, 2012

Freshmen Meet and Mingle Close to Home

For the 40th consecutive year, Cornell freshmen from Monmouth and Ocean Counties met at a picnic just weeks before they leave the suburbs and move to Ithaca. Entering freshmen gathered for this year's picnic at the home of alumni Shari and Eric Kates in Colts Neck. The event was sponsored by our Cornell Club and Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network (CAAAN). CAAAN volunteers worldwide met with over half the 36,000+ freshman applicants.
