Sigma Pi Annual Reunion Weekend

Reunion 2024


Sigma Pi Annual Reunion Weekend

June 6–9, 2024

Reunion weekend is fast approaching. Sigma Pi reunion is open for all alumni to attend, regardless of Cornell’s reunion years. The alumni board, in partnership with the undergraduates and reunion class leaders, are working hard to increase participation and to make reunion weekend a fun and memorable time back at the Pi house.

We are hoping for a big turnout and look forward to seeing you there!

If there are events or activities that you or your fellow brothers are interested in organizing at the house, please contact Steve Pirozzi (spirozzi1@nyc.rr.com)

For reunion, we are running the fraternity as an Airbnb. Rooms are open to all alumni. All doubles will be allocated for two people. Rooms will have fresh linens and towels. There will be housekeeping services to keep things tidy.

Please take advantage ASAP! The fee to stay at the house is $175 per person for the weekend (What a bargain!). To confirm your reservation and room allocation, contact Zion Sherin (zns3@cornell.edu).

If you’re looking to secure lodging for Reunion Weekend, please contact The Dorm Hotel at 607-319-4611. We have a block of rooms reserved for Alumni Weekend.
