Unfortunately, due to Covid regulations, we are not allowed to offer campus tours, and Cornell prohibits outside visitors from coming to campus. Read more about Cornell’s Covid-19 regulations here.

Move-In and Pre-Orientation 2021

While we are still waiting on updates from Cornell University regarding the Fall orientation, we are hoping to offer our in-person pre-orientation, an overnight program  that includes many fun activities and a great way to make friends on day one! Attending pre-orientation will also give you a chance to move-in a day early into your dorm room. New information will be posted as it becomes available to us.

If you have any questions please email our Director of Jewish Experiences, Nikki Michaelson.

Parents are welcome to be in touch with our Executive Director, Ari Weiss

Big/Little Mentoring Program 

In the fall we will also be offering our Big/Little program, a mentorship initiative that connects freshmen with Hillel involved upperclassmen.
