As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

Special Angel Island Hike with Duke, Northwestern and, UChicago

  • 23 May 2015
  • 11:30 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Pier 41, San Francisco (ferry to Angel Island)


Registration is closed

Join alumni from Northwestern University, University of Chicago and Duke University for a hike on Angel Island.  Well-known for its spectacular, breathtaking views of the Bay area, Angel Island is also a place of historical significance.

We will hike the island's gorgeous Northridge and Sunset Trail. The entire group will scale to summit of Mt. Livermore -  which provides a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view of the Bay Area.  

After the hike, we’ll stop at the Visitor Center in Ayala Cove (Quarantine Station), which once served as a bachelor officers’ quarters.  

The Visitor Center has a viewing room which shows two twenty-minute films. One film covering the history and natural beauty of the island, the other, Carved in Silence, tells the story of the island’s part in immigration history.

Ferry to the island departs at 11:45am from Pier 41. It returns at 4:55pm.

Registration is required due to limited tickets for the ferry.
