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.

The Princeton Club of Northern California welcomes members of Cornell NorCal to join their Ivy alumni group workshop: “Sleep 101: a Crash-Course for Increasing Productivity, Health, and Well Being”. 


You can register for this event here on Eventbrite. The registration deadline is August 9, 2020 @ 5:00pm PST. 

About this Event:

Learn what happens overnight to your body and mind, and why prioritizing sleep is the #1 lifestyle change you can make to increase productivity, health, and well being, especially as we serve as leaders at our workplace, in our homes, and in our communities.

• What does sleep do for you?

• What happens to your body when you don't get enough sleep?

• Why are none of us getting enough?

• What minor and major changes can you make to have noticeable improvements in your sleep?

To obtain the full experience of the workshop, keep track of your nightly sleep seven days prior to the Zoom workshop. A Google Sheet to track your sleep will be emailed to registered attendees.

A Zoom link will be sent in an email one day before the live webinar.
