December Newsletter: Happy Holidays and Cornell Drinks in January!

A Quick Round off

And just in a blink of an eye, it’s almost the end of 2015. Among the numerous activities held, we celebrated Cornell’s 150th anniversary at Hombre Cantina in April, sent off another batch of freshmen at our annual satay party, and had another fantastic Zinck’s Night. We had a blast of a year, and we certainly hope that 2015 had been good to you too!

We are planning a bunch of events next year, so keep an eye out for our monthly newsletter. Happy holidays everyone, and see you all in January!
