Chesterton House – 115 The Knoll



$45 fee for early move-in to dorms

The Overnight is a mini-retreat that transitions students from summer into their first year at Cornell. First-year freshman and transfers will join upperclass students prior to orientation in order to meet classmates, learn about life at Cornell, and glean wisdom in the context of Christian fellowship. We will spend our time in team-building activities, learning from a Christian faculty member, reflecting, discussing with upperclass students, strengthening camaraderie through meals, and relaxing as well. The Overnight will take place August 22-23, 2019 from Thursday afternoon to Friday morning and the cost is $75. If you are moving into the dorms, there is a $45 fee for early move-in, so your total payment will be $120. The program begins with a welcome lunch for you and your family on Thursday at our men’s residential facility.

What Participants Said Last Year:

“The best part of the Overnight was the bonding that happened so quickly as well as the opportunity to interact with upperclassmen.”

“It gave me a new perspective and understanding of the role of academics in Christianity and I feel I’ve learned a lot about how to approach the knowledge that college will be giving us.”
