Founded by undergrads, service groups are still going strong

“I didn’t want to come to Cornell and stay in a bubble,” recalls Arts & Sciences alum Fatema Gunja Sumar ’01. “I really wanted to be part of the community — and there were a lot of ways we could connect our knowledge and shared humanity with Tompkins County.”

Sumar is just one of numerous Cornellians over the decades who have seen a need in the Ithaca area — and took it upon themselves to fill it by forming a student organization or program to provide a vital service.

Visit Cornellians to read about groups and efforts that were launched by undergrads years or even decades ago — and are still going strong in the Einhorn Center today.
