Who We Are

A community of Cornell University alumni, parents, and friends living and working in beautiful Switzerland!

We are a dynamic and welcoming group that celebrates the spirit of the university and the wonders of Switzerland. We meet regularly to reconnect and explore what Switzerland has to offer, whether it’s hiking through the beautiful Swiss landscapes, or attending food or wine events, or taking walking tours of historic cities.

Our most notable and anticipated event is our annual Thanksgiving celebration! We are hosted by a hotel or restaurant managed by a Cornell alumnus/alumna to keep the Thanksgiving traditions alive – including a roasted turkey and all the festive trimmings! A time-honored tradition and a beloved event not to be missed!

Come and meet our community! We cordially invite you to join our next event and get to know our club members.

We hope to see you soon!

With our warmest regards,
The Cornell Club of Switzerland

Letter from the Club President

Dear fellow alumni and friends,

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website and logo as part of the ongoing evolution of our Club. One of our key missions is to attract more alumni who are living and/or working in Switzerland to join our Cornell alumni community. This website is designed to gain visibility, showcase our dynamic Club, and communicate with our membership more freely in a modern way that facilitates and enhances our Cornell connection. Thank you to the team that made this possible!

As you can imagine, it is important that we keep the website alive with our latest news. We encourage you to send your suggestions, articles to post, and pictures of our events to admin@cornellswitzerland.ch.

We look forward to sharing the Cornell spirit of this Club worldwide.

Best regards,

Dr. Christophe Zimmerli
President, Cornell Club of Switzerland
