Virtual Graduate Recruitment Events

We would like to (virtually) meet you!

The Cornell Graduate School remains committed to working with prospective students and assisting them with the graduate school exploration and application processes.  Due to health concerns presented by COVID-19 we, along with many of our partners, have shifted to virtual recruitment activities for the 2020-21 cycle. 

Representatives from the Cornell Graduate School will be attending and hosting a variety of virtual recruitment events during the 2020-21 academic year. Please explore our recruiting schedule to identify opportunities to speak with a Cornell representative at a virtual event.  Please note: as this continues to be a rapidly changing environment, we will continue to add events, dates and updated registration links to the virtual recruitment calendar below as they become available, so please bookmark this page and check back regularly. 

If you are a prospective student who would like to schedule a Zoom meeting with Anitra McCarthy, our Senior Director of Recruitment, please email to schedule a time.

If you are a university or corporate representative interested in having the Cornell Graduate School participate in a recruitment event you are hosting, please
