Welcome to Classmate News

When Cornell discontinued Cornell Alumni Magazine (CAM) last year, we decided to post here all the news from classmates that we had been accumulating. “Classmate News” not only features current news but includes an archive of postings from the past year and earlier.

Everything that is sent to Judy Prenske Rich, is also passed along to the editor of Cornellians. The biggest differences between the entries in Class Notes in Cornellians and our website are that we have no deadlines or limits on word-length. This allows your postings to be timelier, longer, and can include photos. And, of course, our website is dedicated to all things Class of 1962.

Thank you for submitting your news. To see if your email address is on the list to receive Cornellians, contact Lauren Coffey, Director of Class Programs. To find out what is now and has been going in the Class for the past 60+ years, check out this website it its entirety.
