Members of the Cornell Real Estate Club (CREC) are used to getting off campus. Each year they visit real estate firms in New York City and Philadelphia, where they network with industry executives, tour properties, and experience the industry firsthand.
For their most recent trip off East Hill, club members stayed a little closer to home. CREC co-presidents David Weinstein ’15 and David Fitzpatrick ’16 traveled to Ithaca High School to introduce students to the commercial real estate industry and the many different career paths available in the field.
“We had been looking for a way to get more involved in the Ithaca community, and we wanted to give the high school students the chance to talk to current Cornellians like us—in addition to guidance counselors and admissions staff,” explained David W. “I would have loved it if a student from a college I wanted to attend had come to my high school.”
