Cornell Real Estate Club

Fostering growth for our real estate industry leaders of tomorrow



The Cornell Real Estate Club (CREC) provides undergraduates pursuing a minor in real estate at Cornell University with the latest industry tools and resources to expand their professional networks and knowledge of the real estate industry.



Founded in 2010, CREC collaborates with the Cornell Real Estate and Finance (CREF) and the Associate Real Estate Council (AREC) to provide the latest industry tools and resources.  CREC complements the real estate curriculum by providing educational, professional, and networking opportunities. The club benefits students previously unexposed to real estate to become more interested in the industry, provide those with a real estate background with a forum to refine and expand their knowledge, and expose those students to industry professionals, real world projects, and on-campus events.

Over the past two years, membership has tripled and the club’s role in real estate education and professional development has expanded. Now, with over 1,000 members, the Cornell Real Estate Club can offer a wider range of activities for members, including career treks to various cities, formal mentor program, industry exposure, and guest speakers. Our agenda is devoted exclusively to career preparation and professional development.

CREC provides an educational platform wherein our members get to learn from industry professionals.  Our club hosts networking opportunities, treks, and educational seminars every semester.  Many members join our club as a means to branch out and learn about an unfamiliar industry, inspiring them to pursue careers in the Real Estate industry.

There is no application process and students can join at any time.  Please sign up on Cornell Orgsync to become a registered CREC member and receive our weekly announcements.  Feel free to contact any EBoard members if you are still unsure about how to sign up.  

CREC offers treks to different major cities around the globe, including New York City and London.  We visit company headquarters, host networking sessions with Cornell alumni, and visit construction sites.  We credit CREC alumni on making our treks a memorable experience for our members.
