Cornell Alumni Magazine Ceased Publication. What Comes Next?
Cornell Alumni Magazine (CAM) ceased publication with the May/June 2021 issue. Many have asked “What comes next?”
Well, the answer is that two things come next. As of now, Cornell and alumni news is available online on the Cornell alumni website, https://alumni.cornell.edu. Open the website and click on "News" on the bottom menu. Class Notes and Alumni Deaths will be updated every two months and can be seen by clicking on "Search" on the top menu and entering either "Alumni Deaths" or "Class Notes".
In addition, a new print publication is in the works that will include much of the editorial content of the online news as well as Class Notes and Alumni Deaths. You will have to register for this print publication and pay a subscription fee, but the fee will no longer be part of the annual class dues. This publication should debut in Fall 2021 and we should know by then how much the print publication will cost, how to subscribe and how many editions will be published per year.
There will be no change in the frequency of Class Notes. Alex, the Class Notes editor at CAM, is continuing to perform that function for the online publication and the print publication (when it goes live). There is a place on the online Class Notes for alumni to submit news to their Class Correspondents. Our class website will continue to publish Class Notes and alumni deaths just as before.
The intent of all of this is to reach a larger alumni audience than was possible on CAM and to provide more Cornell and alumni information than was available previously. It is also intended that past issues of CAM will still be accessible from an online archive.
Your class website will continue to provide class-specific information and photo archives as it always has.
