We aim to provide Cornell University students extraordinary opportunities to experience and learn business and entrepreneurship.
It all began with Seth..
We can trace our roots back to 1894, when an entrepreneurial Cornell student named Seth Higby started his own laundry business to support his education. The simple laundry business was passed down to younger students each year. Overtime, it grew into today's modern Student Agencies.
The programmatic work of the Student Agencies Foundation enables Cornell students to get extraordinary, hands-on, real-world business experience that they can carry throughout their professional careers.
Our real estate investments provide a stable funding source for all our programmatic activities and grants. And to think, this all started with Seth and his laundry business!
