Please note: Due to the pandemic, this year's Fall Employee Celebration has been scaled-down compared to previous years in order to protect public health and comply with regulations. But our commitment to celebrating Cornell employees is more heartfelt than ever!



  • Cornell employees can reserve a free ticket to the game! Login to the link below, and your free discount will automatically apply.  Additional tickets will need to be purchased. Game starts at 7:00 pm.
