Cornell is home to the very best and world-renowned faculty, passionate students, dedicated staff, limitless clubs and organizations, and many other resources for you to make this experience uniquely your own.  It’s up to you to use your imagination, creativity, and the process of trial and error to create an educational experience that works for you. The Division of Student & Campus Life will be here to provide you with programs and opportunities that inspire your journey and your transformation. This site is designed to help you find the many services our division provides to create a campus environment that enables you to thrive at Cornell. We promote the wellbeing of the entire campus community through Cornell Health’s holistic wellness approach and Athletics & Physical Education’s intramural sports, PE courses, and recreation. We foster community on campus through residential programs, cheering on our varsity sports teams, and bringing people together in our many dining establishments.

Whether you are looking for leadership and volunteer opportunities through Campus and Community Engagement, trying to determine and plan for your career with Cornell Career Services, or need support in your identity development with the Dean of Students, Student & Campus Life has the resources you need. 

I encourage you to extend your learning beyond the classroom, and embrace the breadth of Cornell. I look forward to seeing you on campus!

Ryan T. Lombardi, Ed.D.

Cornell University Land Acknowledgement

Cornell University is located on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' (the Cayuga Nation). The Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' are members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign Nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land. The Confederacy precedes the establishment of Cornell University, New York state, and the United States of America. We acknowledge the painful history of Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' dispossession, and honor the ongoing connection of Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' people, past and present, to these lands and waters.

This land acknowledgment has been reviewed and approved by the traditional Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' leadership.
