New Students












Welcome to Cornell!

All of us here at the Cornell Center for Jewish Living cannot wait to welcome you to campus! Here at the CJL, our goal is to connect Jewish students of all backgrounds through social, religious, and residential programs. Our community of more than 100 Jewish students encompasses members from across the university with a wide array of majors and extracurriculars represented by our members. We hope that the CJL can serve as your home away from home during your time in Ithaca, and that your experiences within our community come to enrich your Cornell years.

This page is full of tips and resources that will help you start your Cornell Journey. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
