To all students admitted to the Cornell Information Science (IS) PhD Program,

On behalf of Cornell and the IS graduate student community, congratulations! Cornell is an excellent school, home to many enthusiastic researchers with diverse interests. We are excited to host you as you consider Cornell for your graduate studies.

This year Information Science Admitted Student Visit Day will run for three days, starting Monday, March 9, 2020, in Ithaca, NY and concluding Wednesday, March 11, 2020, in New York City at our Cornell Tech campus. The key day is Monday, March 9, 2020, with our full official program running from breakfast on Monday through Tuesday. Those visiting NYC will leave Ithaca on Tuesday around noon. You will not be returning to the Cornell Ithaca campus. Please make your return travel arrangements from the New York City area. We would love if you are able to attend so you can see what our elite PhD program has to offer.

We recommend that everyone attend the Ithaca portion and arrive in Ithaca a day before, on Sunday, March 8, 2020,  since Monday's program starts quite early. You'll be notified in your admission letter of more details of this. We will be asking for you to commit to visit day early so that reservations can be made in advance on your behalf. More explicit details will follow mid-February and the tentative schedule below will be updated.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Barbara Woske, Graduate Field Assistant at

See you soon!
