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.

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.
