Building lasting relationships outside of the laboratory are important to your experience in graduate school. Student clubs and academic initiatives reflect the community here at Weill Cornell. The diversity of interests is wide-ranging, whether they be academic and professional development or hitting a ball out of the park (or a birdie!), students are encouraged to join a student club or initiative.

If you're looking to make new friends (and maybe some enemies), look no further than the Board Games Club! We meet in the evenings in the Lasdon student lounge once a week, and play a variety of strategy, social-deception, and card games. All students from the Graduate and Medical school are welcome!
We believe that STEM outreach must start early! The purpose of our club is to engage young minds with various STEM activities. Our tasks include developing, testing and teaching exciting lesson plans for children, focused on elementary/middle school students but also high-school on occasion. We run the program in NYC elementary schools, on campus, and at various community events. We also aim for some of our events to be held in schools located in inner-city urban communities, aiming to inspire traditionally underrepresented youth to learn about STEM careers and that science can be fun.

The Chinese Student and Scholar Association was founded to support the general Chinese population in Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorially Sloan-Kettering Institute, the Rockefeller University and Hospital for Special Surgery. We also work with Cornell Tech, as well as Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in New York. The mission of this association is to facilitate career and life of Chinese in the four institutes and to introduce the Chinese culture to our international friends.
This club aims at fostering a community of data scientists in the Tri-Institutional system. The goal of this club is to provide a support system to all the students who are looking to build a skillset in data science. Club activities include regular meetings where students share their data science projects and guest speaker events where experienced data scientists from the industry as well as research institutions will present on a variety of topics. We encourage students of all backgrounds and experience levels to attend the events.
