in this section

Cornell University Chapter of the American Meteorological Society (CCAMS)

Comprised primarily of Cornell meteorology majors, CCAMS holds monthly meetings to discuss/schedule club events such as forecasting activities, service opportunities, athletics events, and non-academic recreation. Chapter members participate in the CCAMS Weatherphone (forecasts are posted on the CCAMS website and also as messages on the namesake phone, which can be reached at (607) 255-6567), and other service activities related to severe weather safety and general weather awareness. Many chapter members also help plan alumni weekend and organize groups to attend national meteorology conferences. Alumni weekend is held every Spring and aims to form a closer relationship between current and former meteorology students at Cornell. The Chapter holds forecasting contests each semester and donates all proceeds to local charities. In addition, CCAMS holds regular social events ranging from parties to dinners with faculty members in Collegetown. If you would like more information about CCAMS, feel free to contact one of the current officers.

Science of Earth Systems Student Association (SESSA)

The Science of Earth Systems Student Association works to unite students interested in the earth sciences, increase networking and peer mentoring, and to raise awareness (both within the Cornell community and beyond) about the vast number of opportunities within the field. The association holds regular social events ranging from ice cream socials and pizza parties to undergraduate research symposiums and career information sessions. If you would like more information about SESSA, feel free to contact Savannah Williams.
