How about a Summer 2013 vacation at Cornell?

Enticing weeklong programs offered July 7 to August 3

Plan your Cornell vacation now at

We invite you, your family, and friends to spend a rejuvenating week (or two!) on Cornell’s beautiful campus this summer, surrounded by friendly companions while learning something new with one of the university’s distinguished faculty members.

This summer’s engaging CAU programs include:

  • seminars on topics ranging from art, astronomy, finance, history, and math to the secret lives of spiders;
  • workshops in subjects such as birdwatching, cooking, sculpture, garden design, meditation, and wine tasting; and
  • active sessions on biking, rowing, sailing, golf, tennis, outdoor skills, and much more.

After class, participants gather for drinks and conversation in the adult lounge and enjoy dinner and evening entertainment, including free lectures, concerts, and other events on campus and in Ithaca.

For those vacationing with children or grandchildren, CAU offers more than a dozen youth programs in art, writing, horse care and riding, rockets and robots, cooking, veterinary science, sailing, and other entertaining subjects. We offer both commuter and residential options for youth, and teens 13-16 are welcome to spend the week at CAU unaccompanied by parents or guardians.

Past participant Arthur Frommer, founder of Frommer’s travel guides, described his time at CAU as “one of the most exciting intellectual adventures.” He writes, “Among competing vacations, this was one of the great values.”

100 years — and a world of oysters - Times Union

Congratulations to alum Brad Rosenstein and Jack’s Oyster House for serving up fresh oysters for 100 years!

[Albany Mayor] Jennings and two generations of Rosensteins unveiled Jack’s centennial banners across the intersection of State and Pearl streets on Wednesday morning. Brad Rosentein’s father, Arnold, 91 and still an occasional presence at the restaurant his dad founded, stayed away because of the single-digit Januaryness of the day. But Brad was there, as was his son, Jack, 19, who is a student at the Culinary Institute of America and is doing an internship this year at the restaurant. (Daughter Jillian, 22, is finishing up a degree in hotel administration at Brad’s and Arnold’s alma mater, Cornell.)
