Happy Birthday, Cornell!

Big Red Bash, 2015

Charter Day Weekend at the Ithaca campus began April 24 with brief remarks at the Tompkins County Public Library and the dedication of a plaque and planter bed on the Ithaca Commons, and ended April 27 with a formal academic procession and program. In-between, participants enjoyed the festivities of the Big Red Birthday Bash, the concert “My Cornell: A Celebration of Words and Music,” and the academic discussions covering a wide range of topics relevant to contemporary life.
