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 not yet re-started.
However, Cornell NorCal continues to present a robust calendar of virtual events on a monthly basis. Additionally, we are cross-posting highlighted events from other Cornell clubs on our page below.
Please check back in here, find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/CornellNorCal/), or sign up for our newsletter to get regular updates on upcoming events.

Celebrate Veteran’s Day with Cornell NorCal! Join Cornell alumni, family, and friends for a private tour of the USS Hornet, an aircraft carrier that participated in both World War II and the Apollo 11 space mission. The tour will be led by a veteran and will include stops in the engine room, navigation deck, crew barracks, and mobile quarantine facility. The tour is appropriate for all ages.

After the tour, those who are interested will head down the street to Rock Wall Winery and Scolaris for lunch and a glass of wine. The winery and restaurant are located in the former Alameda Naval Air Base and have great views of the Bay Bridge and San Francisco. There is plenty of outdoor seating and an area for children.
