Cornell alumni and graduate students wishing to attend the event are also required to purchase eTickets.

All Slope Day attendees (except for faculty and staff with valid ID) will be required to collect a wristband from designated stations. Wristband distribution stations will be set up starting Monday, May 6 at fourteen locations around campus.

Wristbands will be affixed by Slope Day staff at the time of pick-up and must remain on your wrist for the duration of the event. Only attendees with affixed wristbands will be admitted to Slope Day. Attendees are strongly encouraged to pick up wristbands early.

To get a wristband, you must either be a registered Cornell undergraduate with a valid Cornell ID or have purchased an eTicket and have a government-issued ID proving you are over 18 years of age.
