Each year, we invite students and alumni to translate and sing Cornell's Alma Mater, "Far Above Cayuga's Waters." The inaugural Lingua Mater competition took place in 2018 as part of Cornell's Global Grand Challenges Symposium.
Watch this year's winners on our Lingua Mater website.
Congratulations to the Burmese, French, and Indonesian student participants and to the alumni winner from Argentina.
Mark your calendars for next year's competition during International Education Week and start translating and practicing now.
The Lingua Mater competition is co-sponsored by the Language Resource Center, the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs, and the Office of International Alumni Relations.
