Contact prospective Cornell students

CAAAN is the Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network, a group of nearly 6,900 alumni volunteers who assist the Cornell admissions community in recruiting superior undergraduate applicants. CAAAN members are involved in a variety of activities, the biggest of which is contacting local candidates who have submitted their application, to answer questions, provide a positive perspective on the University, and accumulate additional information about the applicant. These are not to be considered formal interviews! All area alums interested in contacting applicants to the University as part of the CAAAN network should be sure to sign-up as a member today and our local CAAAN Chair, Barry Hecht, will be sure to include you in CAAAN activities.
