Now Cooking

"NOW" Series

The "NOW" Series is a collection of activities designed to highlight student and staff talents and interests while also encouraging use of the freshly renovated spaces in our first year halls. The schedule of events is planned and executed by our senior student staff Residential Coordinators.

  • NOW Cooking takes place the second Tuesday of each block in the Dows Hall Kitchen.  These events feature tips and tricks for preparing a simple dish, and are hosted by Bon Appétit staff. 
  • NOW Playing is a series of events focused on gaming and fun activities that will primarily be held in the Pauley-Rorem East Lounge.
  • NOW Showing will showcase acts by a Cornell faculty, staff, student or special guest on the Marlene and Richard Williams Performance Area in the Tarr Lounge.
