Welcome

The Cornell Club of Western Washington welcomes you!

Membership in the CCWW is free and open to all Cornellians living in the Puget Sound area. We organize social, networking, community-service and educational activities.

Originally, CCWW was founded in the 1940s by Norbert Fratt '26, Art O'Shea '30, Frank Frink '30 and Thomas Kelley '31. In the early 70s the club waned, but it was revived by Cork DeHardinge '53 and Karis Ricketts '61. Since then the club continues to grow and flourish.

Attend an Event

CCWW holds a number of events throughout the year such as our annual picnic, Spirit of Zinck's Night, service events at area community organizations, Lunar New Year dinner, new student send-off, sporting event watch parties, happy hours (often in cooperation with Ivy+), as well as group discussions and forums on cultural and business-related topics. Please check out our events calendar for upcoming events.
