This Wikiproject was just overhauled, and the basic design is laid out. :) If you have anything to add to the pages, just press the "EDIT" button in the top-right hand corner of the frame, enter your content, and save the page. Please do NOT edit this main page unless you know what you are doing. Happy editing! –Xtreambar (talk · contribs)

Although Cornell-related articles have continued to be guarded against vandalism and inaccurate additions, many articles are moderately out of date, having last been overhauled sometime between 2006 and 2008. Especially given the number of inactive members, the project needs some fresh eyes to be bold and help keep articles current. If you have an interest in Cornell and wish to learn more about contributing to the WikiProject, feel free to contact me or another member of the project. We welcome all assistance. –Notyourbroom (talk · contribs)

We are reviving the collaboration of the month for this project. We previously focused on a different article each week, but given the time commitments of project members, a monthly rotation makes more sense at this point. Our first monthly collaboration is the History of Cornell University. –Racepacket (talk · contribs)

History of Cornell University has been recognized as a Good Article. We hope that the main article and college articles will soon join it. -Racepacket (talk · contribs)
