Tips & Resources for the Fall Semester

Gorge Safety

Please use caution when exploring Cornell’s gorges. Review the Gorge Safety resources to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable time exploring our natural surroundings.

Alcohol and Other Drug Use

You may find yourself in a situation where you or others around you choose to take part in alcohol or other drug use. Review this information about alcohol and drug use among Cornellians, harm-reduction strategies for students, and safety resources to know.

Hazing Prevention

90% of Cornellians believe it is never okay to humiliate or intimidate new members of an organization or group. Despite this, you may come into contact with behaviors that do not make you comfortable. Review these hazing prevention resources to help you identify signs of hazing and how you can help to put a stop to it.

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards educates students about behavioral expectations and enforces the Student Code through a fair and educational process that fosters campus safety, accountability, and personal/organizational development.
