Bring a Child to Work encores past successes

More than 300 children registered for Cornell’s Bring a Child to Work Day, held April 27. A wide range of activities was offered throughout the day, some popular from years past and others new this year.

Cornell Dining provided pizza-making, cupcake and cookie-decorating sessions, which, according to Cheryl McGraw, event coordinator for human resources, always fill up quickly. Similarly, the open paddling sessions on Beebe Lake, offered by Cornell Outdoor Education, are always popular.

Also popular: The Bhangra and Raas dance groups led some high-energy activities, while activities by the Cornell Police and the Reserve Officers Training Corps demonstrated the rigor and precision that these units require.

New this year was a Geocashing/Scavenger Hunt on the Arts Quad.

Bring a Child to Work Day is held annually and is sponsored by the Division of Human Resources.
