This list of Cornell University alumni includes notable graduates, non-graduate former students, and current students of Cornell University, an Ivy League university located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell counted 245,027 living alumni as of August 2008.[1] Its alumni constitute 25 recipients of National Medal of Science and National Medal of Technology and Innovation combined, 36 MacArthur Fellows, 34 Marshall Scholars and 31 Rhodes Scholars,[1][2][3][4] 237 elected members of the National Academy of Sciences, 178 elected members of the National Academy of Engineering, 190 plus heads of higher learning institutions in the United States and around the world, and Cornell is the only university with three female winners of unshared Nobel Prizes among its graduates (Pearl S. Buck, Barbara McClintock, and Toni Morrison).[5][6] Many alumni maintain university ties through Homecoming's reunion weekend, through Cornell Magazine,[7] and through the Cornell Club of New York. In 2005, Cornell ranked No. 3 nationwide for gifts and bequests from alumni.[1] Alumni are known as Cornellians, many of whom are noted for their accomplishments in public, professional, and corporate life.[1][8]

Fictional alumni have been portrayed in several films, television shows, and books. Characters include Andy Bernard of The Office,[9] Natalie Keener of Up in the Air,[10] Tom Kirkman of Designated Survivor, and Christina Pagniacci of Any Given Sunday.[11]
