is the Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network, a group of 10,000 proud Cornell alumni who serve as enthusiastic ambassadors to prospective students and families in all 50 states and at least 50 nations across the globe.

Alumni ambassadors are important to Cornell’s admissions recruitment efforts as they meet individually with freshman applicants, staff college fairs, and host local receptions for admitted and entering students. CAAAN members not only share their experiences and information about Cornell, but also help to personalize the admissions process for thousands of candidates each year.

If you are a Cornell alumnus and would like to join CAAAN, please click the link and complete the form. You will receive a welcome email with more information and, likely, a call or email from the local CAAAN chair. Also, please visit the New Members page to help you get started.

If you are already a CAAAN member, we thank you! Please use the resources at this site to stay well-informed and effective in your role as an ambassador.

With best wishes from Ithaca,

Shawn Felton
Interim Director
Undergraduate Admissions Office
