ITHACA, N.Y. – As Cornellians and New York City leaders gather Sept. 13 on Roosevelt Island to dedicate the Cornell Tech campus, viewers on the Ithaca campus will watch the festivities live on CornellCast in the Physical Sciences Building and add their Big Red spirit to the celebration.

With five jumbo screens offering a prime viewing opportunity to faculty, students, staff and community members, the event begins at 10 a.m. in Baker Portico and Clark Atrium. The livestream from Roosevelt Island will begin at 10:30 a.m. and end at approximately 11:45 a.m.
