Student Organizations

Cornell University Chapter of the American Meteorological Society (CCAMS)

Comprised primarily of atmospheric sciences majors, CCAMS holds monthly meetings to discuss and schedule club events such as forecasting activities, service opportunities, athletics events, and recreational activities. 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 atmospheric science 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.

Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Student Association (EASSA)

The Earth and Atmospheric Sciences 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.
