RECAP OF EVENTS THAT TOOK PLACE DURING OUR TIME IN I THACA
Racial Attack From Frat Balcony Sparks Protest
Allegedly taunting them with references to Trayvon Martin, a person or group of people on the roof of the Sigma Pi fraternity house reportedly threw bottles and other objects at black students who were walking by the house during the early morning hours of May 6, according to several accounts. The incident provoked a torrent of criticism from minority organizations, student leaders and Cornell administrators, who all rushed to condemn the reported behavior amid a criminal investigation by the Ithaca Police. Under the glare of national media outlets, the University held no fewer than seven events as part of a “series of conversations addressing bias,” and announced that Sigma Pi had been placed on interim suspension in the week after the incident. Still, at a rally on May 16, protesters from Cornell, Ithaca College and the Ithaca community blasted the University’s response to the attack, bringing with them the sound of syncopated drum beats and the fervor of about 100 shouting voices. “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” protesters shouted as they marched from the fraternity to Day Hall. Among their demands was a call for the administration to “take responsibility to end racism and
stop putting this responsibility on students,” to create an “anti-racist joint task force” and to “require all faculty and staff to undergo ongoing anti-oppression and social justice trainings.” Meanwhile, several key details surrounding the incident — including the identity and number of assailants — remain unknown. The fraternity has been “fully cooperative” with the investigation, said Kathy Zoner, chief of the Cornell University Police Department. Beverly Fonkwo ’14 said she was walking home with a friend when, unprovoked, someone on the fraternity roof began throwing objects that landed near a group walking behind them. When the people walking behind Fonkwo asked them to stop, the person or people on top of the fraternity continued to throw objects — including a Jack Daniels bottle that landed near the group behind Fonkwo and an unopened beer can that landed near Fonkwo and her friend — she said. When they asked them to stop again, the group responded, “‘Come up here, Trayvon,’ and started making all these other racial comments,” Fonkwo said. A black teenager from Florida, Trayvon Martin was shot and

killed in February — a death that was widely perceived as unprovoked and galvanized AfricanAmerican activists across the country. “I feel like it was targeted and racially motivated … we felt very threatened,” Fonkwo said of the incident. Meanwhile, the assailants “were just laughing at the whole situation until we called the police and then they ran inside,” she said.
TimeLine 8.30.11 THREE DIE IN GORGE ACCIDENTS: Three students died in separate gorge accidents this summer, leading the University to warn the students of the dangers of gorge swimming, a popular past-time for those looking to cool off during the sweltering summer months. 11.9.11 MYRICK ’09 ELECTED MAYOR OF ITHACA: Just two years after graduating from Cornell, 24-year-old Svante Myrick ’09 was elected Mayor of Ithaca on Nov. 8. The young candidate won wide support across Ithaca’s five wards, shocking many who thought he was too young to win.
11.21.11 HUMANITIES BLDG. SLATED FOR ARTS QUAD: A new building devoted to the humanities will rise on the Arts Quad, President David Skorton announced at a Board of Trustees meeting in November. The building, which will cost $61 million, will face East Avenue and attach to Goldwin Smith. 4.2.12 DALE CORSON, C.U.’s 8TH PRESIDENT, DIES AT 97: Remembered by Cornellians as the leader whose remarkably steady guidance saved the University from the upheaval of the 1970s, Dale Corson, the eighth president of Cornell, died March 31 at the age of 97.
4.20.12 RON PAUL STIRS LYNAH FAITHFUL: The Ron Paul revolution roared through Ithaca on April 19, as the Republican presidential candidate and anti-establishment icon implored a Lynah Rink crowd of over 4,000 to join him and defeat the “tyrants” and “enemies of liberty” destroying America. 5.11.12 PROFS APPROVE CALENDAR DESPITE DISSENT: Overriding widespread opposition from students, the Faculty Senate approved contentious changes to the academic calendar on May 10. Among other changes, the plan would add a break in February and shorten both exam week and senior week.

In a statement, Sigma Pi said that there was one attacker and that he was not a member of the Cornell fraternity. Additionally, Zach Smith ’13, the fraternity’s president, said in an email obtained by The Sun that the individual was a member of Sigma Pi visiting from a chapter at another university. “The entire brotherhood of Sigma Pi is shocked and embar-
rassed by this incident and we recognize [that] we are accountable. Behavior like this from anyone and in any form occurring on our premises is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the ... fraternity,” the statement said. “Though the perpetrator was not a brother of our chapter, this unfortunate event took place on our premises and thus we hold the ultimate responsibility.”

“We think it will redefine our economic future,” he said. “History will write that this was a game-changing time in New York City.” The University proposed an aggressive timetable for opening the new campus. Classes will begin in fall 2012 and will initially be housed in leased space until the permanent campus on Roosevelt Island is constructed. Three hundred students will be enrolled in the school by 2018, Bloomberg said. Cornell’s proposal calls for a campus composed of research hubs — a departure from the departmental structure on the Ithaca campus. “The focus of the hubs will be dynamic,
evolving to keep abreast of trends in both technology and markets,” an executive summary of Cornell’s proposal stated. The first three hubs will focus on connective media, built environment and healthier life. “These hubs will be flexible. In five years they may be different,” the Technion’s president said. The executive summary of Cornell’s proposal stated that Cornell and the Technion want “to create the world’s leading campus dedicated to technology and enterprise.” “With demo days, meet-ups, industry mentors and ties with early stage investors and incubators, the campus will be a focal point for the city’s technology sector,” the document stated.

Students Protest Africana Move; University Increases Funding
LINDSAY MYRON / SUN FILE PHOTO
Fence information | Signs explaining the purpose of the temporary bridge fences were posted near bridges before the fall semester began.
C.U.Picks Bridge Barrier Architect Following months of discussions between Ithaca and the University and the construction of two sets of temporary fencing on the bridges near campus, the University announced in early September the architect who will design permanent suicide barriers for bridges on and near campus. The barriers came as a response to three student suicides from bridges on and near campus during spring 2010. The architect, Nader Tehrani, is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The barrier designs — which,
FOUR YEARS AT CORNELL
in 2011, were revealed to be mostly nets under the bridges — are intended to allow for views of the gorges’ natural beauty. In an academic setting, Tehrani “has focused on research surrounding materials, methods of aggregations, geometry and the advancement of digital fabrication,” according to a website connected to the architect. The temporary fences and the permanent barriers are intended as “means restriction” — a strategy to stop suicides on bridges by physically preventing people from jumping into the gorges.
The University announced in December that the Africana Studies and Research Center — previously a unit under the supervision of Provost Kent Fuchs and separate from any of Cornell’s seven undergraduate colleges — would be merged into the College of Arts and Sciences, effective July 1, 2011. Though Fuchs said the Africana Center would enjoy increased efficiency and support as part of the College of Arts and Sciences, the move was met with immediate backlash from Africana students and faculty, who said they were unhappy with the lack of dialogue in advance of the administrative change, as well as other concerns. Prof. Robert L. Harris, Jr. resigned his post as director of the Africana in protest of the reorganization. Two days later, he rescinded the resignation as he led a group of 80 to 100 protestors in a march to Day Hall. “In 41 years of service to Cornell, I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Prof. James Turner, founder of the Africana Center. In March, the University promised to increase the budget of the Africana Center by more than 50 percent over the next five years.
The pledge — which increased the center’s permanent budget from $2.3 million to $3.5 million — was the first time the University made a specific fiscal commitment to the center. Additionally, the center received a one-time allocation of $2 million to “recruit new faculty, support research and develop a new Ph.D. program,” according to a University statement. Some students, however, argued that the administrative relocation of Africana would com-
promise the 42-year-old center’s autonomy — a loss they said was not solved by the additional funding. “I welcome the increase in resources; I don’t welcome the merge. And I don’t see this as a mutually exclusive situation,” said Zach Murray ’11, of Black Students United. “[This decision] represents a simple raw use of power in an autocratic, undemocratic manner that is certainly not transparent,” Turner said.

TimeLine DONATION ESTABLISHES DYSON SCHOOL: The family of John Dyson, a former chairman of the New York Power Authority, pledged to give $25 million to Cornell’s Department of Applied Economics and Management. With the gift, AEM became the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences as a result of the gift. 8.27.10 NIKE BENDS TO STUDENT PRESSURE: After Cornell threatened to not renew its licensing contract with Nike, the apparel giant agreed to create a $1.5 million relief fund — as well as provide job training programs and a year of healthcare — for laid-off employees of Nike sub-contractors Hugger de Honduras and Vision Tex. Nike’s decision marked the end of Cornell Students Against Sweatshop’s “Just Pay It” campaign — the organization’s second successful attempt in under a year to pressure a corporation into resolving worker disputes. 8.31.10 STUDENT’S BODY FOUND IN GORGE: Rescue workers recovered the body of Khalil King ’13 from the Fall Creek Gorge on Aug. 31. Officials ruled King’s death accidental. He went missing after a night of partying that involved alcohol and possibly drugs, according to police documents. 10.27.10 EDUCATION DEPARTMENT TO CLOSE: The Department of Education in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will be phased out over the next two years, the University announced in October. DAIRY BAR CLOSES FOR RENOVATIONS: The renovation of Stocking Hall — home to the Department of Food Science and the Cornell Dairy Bar — began in November. The Dairy Bar is not expected to reopen until 2013. 11.18.10 JOHNSON DIRECTOR ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT: After serving as the director of the Herbert F.

String of Student Suicides Rattles Campus
After three deaths within one month, University installs bridge fences The Cornell community was shaken in Spring 2010 after three students jumped from campus bridges between February and March. The highly public suicides attracted national media attention as all eyes turned on Cornell and the stunned campus grappled with what happened. In total, six students committed suicide and five others died from other causes during the 2009-2010 academic year. The University responded immediately after the third death in mid-March by placing 24-hour security guards on all bridges on and near campus. The guards, who remained in place until students left for spring break, were assigned to keep watch over the bridges. By the time spring break ended, the City of Ithaca and Cornell agreed to construct temporary chain-link fences along the sides of seven bridges. University officials maintained that the fences were a short-term solution to prevent further tragedy while longer-term solutions were being devised. The fences, however, stirred a debate that has stayed strong ever since. Some members of the community protested the fences’ obstruction of the gorges’ natural beauty, while others emphasized their potential life-saving benefits. The chain-link fences were eventually replaced by non-reflective black fences. Beginning in the summer of 2012, Ithaca and Cornell are planning to install nets under most campus bridges, which will per-
manently replace the fences. Other immediate responses to the deaths included the expansion of mental health outreach services, personal check-ins on all students living on campus, a “Lift Your Spirits” event on the Arts Quad, and extended hours for counseling services. After the third suicide, which took place in mid-March, the University’s messages to the community struck a much more personal and urgent tone than previous announcements of student deaths. “Your well being is the foundation on which your success is built. You are not alone,” Skorton said in an e-mail to the community on March 12, 2010. “If you learn anything at Cornell, please learn to ask for help. It is a sign of wisdom and strength.” The suicides brought back discussions of Cornell’s grim reputation as a “suicide school.” Though the University’s suicide rate, despite the events of spring 2010, is slightly below the national average, many began to question whether Cornell takes enough proactive measures to prevent student tragedies. Improving the “culture of Cornell” became a common initiative among Student Assembly members and other student groups. Others called for the University to adjust the academic calendar to decrease the time period between breaks — changes that the Faculty Senate, despite protests from students, approved in spring 2012.
TimeLine 1.25.10 GREEK SYSTEM UNDER SCRUTINY: Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity had its University recognition suspended temporarily during rush week after a rush week event that sent three students to the hospital. Following a nearly three-month review, the chapter was officially shut down. Kappa Sigma was also shut down for violating rules in its national charter and Alpha Delta Phi was put on probation after its hazing practices were leaked to a gossip website. 2.2.10 CORNELL FEELS EFFECTS OF BUDGET CUTS: With the University’s strategic planning process moving toward completion, the Department of Theatre, Film and Dance was the first of the
semester to feel the effects of the cuts when it was told to prepare for its funding to be slashed by $2 million, about one third of its budget. The Russian department was also threatened, with the Russian major being redistributed to the comparative literature department. 4.20.10 GRAD STUDENT CONVICTED OF WIFE’S MURDER: A court returned a guilty verdict on each of the three felony charges against former Cornell graduate student Blazej Kot. Kot was convicted of second-degree murder for fatally stabbing his wife Caroline Coffey, a student at Cornell’s Veterinary School, whose body was found on a wooded trail in Taughannock Falls State Park.

TimeLine CORNELL LOOKS WITHIN AS DEFICIT LOOMS: With Cornell’s current budget deficit still totaling more than $135 million, the University was forced to seriously reconsider its future. “Reimagining Cornell” — an effort the University touted as “one of the most comprehensive self-examinations” in its 144-year history — became the University’s strategic plan that top administrators hoped would set Cornell on stable financial footing. The project had two phases: identifying areas across the University where expenses
could be trimmed, and then rebuilding Cornell into a “leaner and stronger institution,” according to the University. The work was first divided between Bain & Co., a global consulting firm, and task forces composed of people within the University that focused on various aspect of Cornell. The findings of these task forces were released to the public in November, and they contained a wide range of strategies for how Cornell’s academic programs could be either reorganized, merged, consolidated or eliminated as the University sought to function more efficiently in what Provost
Kent Fuchs called “an era of reduced resources.” REASSIGNMENT OF UJAMAA DIRECTOR CAUSES OUTCRY: Controversy erupted when Ken Glover, residential housing director of Ujamaa Residential College, was abruptly reassigned to another position. The student response highlighted growing unrest surrounding the University’s review of program houses on campus. In October, the group Students for Ken Glover, staged a march in support of Glover at the Homecoming Parade. Later that month,
more than 100 students and community members participated in a silent protest outside the a trustee meeting to share their concerns over suppression of minority voices on campus. CORNELL HIT BY H1N1 PANDEMIC: More than 1,700 Cornell students were diagnosed with probable H1N1 influenza during the academic year, prompting a University-wide response to the global pandemic. Aside from Gannett’s efforts to contain the virus, Cornell’s athletics department eliminated the annual “camp out” for hockey tickets, and the Interfraternity Council put a temporary moratorium on fraternity parties to limit person-to-person contact. Warren Schor’s ’11 death — a result of complications relating to H1N1 — was the first H1N1related fatality in Tompkins County. UNIVERSITY LOSES 45,000 SS NUMBERS: In June 2009, Cornell informed more than 45,000 current and former members of the University community that sensitive personal information — including their names and Social Security numbers — had been exposed when a University-owned laptop was stolen. As a result of the breach, the University provided protective services to those affected, including free credit reporting, credit monitoring and identity theft restoration services.

‘They used to call me Piggy’ | As the swine flu pandemic reached its peak at the beginning of September, a pig’s head was found on a stake in the Arts Quad alongside a Lord of the Flies quote.
UNIVERSITY AND ITHACA SOUND OFF ON HYDROFRACKING: Technological innovations, including the development of new gas extraction capabilities like horizontal drilling and hydraulic-fracturing, known as “hydrofracking,” spawned interest in the Marcellus Shale — which extends into Tompkins County. With the prospect of a large-scale gas drilling project in Ithaca, Cornellians and Ithacans alike voiced concern about such a project’s potential environmental and health impacts.
C.U.Ramps Up Response After Student H1N1 Death Warren Schor ’11, of Clinton Corners, N.Y., died on Sept. 11, 2009, at Cayuga Medical Center from complications relating to H1N1 influenza. Schor, 20, was the first H1N1 influenza-related fatality in Tompkins County. By mid-September, the total number of students diagnosed by Gannett Health Services with probable cases of H1N1 flu had risen to approximately 556, according to Sharon Dittman, Gannett’s associate director for community relations. In a message to members of the Cornell community after Schor’s death, President David Skorton urged everyone to be on alert about the risks related to underlying health conditions and severe flu symptoms. As part of the University’s effort to fight the spread of the flu, hand-sanitizing stations appeared throughout campus, and signs urging the community to wash its hands became ubiquitous. Just days before Schor’s death, the Interfraternity Council enacted a moratorium on all its social events to help curb the spread of flu on campus. The moratorium prohibited most fraternity events for a span of two weeks in mid-September. “We have an obligation as leaders to take this seriously,” then-IFC President Eddie Rooker ’10 said. “I whole-heartedly think that this is a logical
and reasonable step to take right now.” The IFC’s action came as Gannett was reporting an “extremely high” volume of patients calling and visiting with flu-like symptoms. At one point, Gannett officials were forced to temporarily suspend the scheduling of appointments for routine care due to the influx of flu-related patients. The Faculty Senate passed a resolution encouraging instructors to be flexible when students catch the flu so that students do not feel they need to come to class. Faculty were encouraged “to offer make-up exams following scheduled examinations, delayed due dates for other assignments and excusal of classes missed due to illness,” the resolution stated. “I think we’ll be much more lenient with students who miss class,” Prof. William Fry Ph.D. ’70, the dean of faculty, told The Sun at the time. “There are no absolute rules; anyone can apply to the faculty.” In response to the outbreak, administrators relied upon the organizational mechanisms created by a previous plan for a different type of pandemic. Ominously, according to the plan, if the pandemic reached disastrous proportions, Barton Hall was to be used as an infirmary and Lynah Rink was to function as a morgue.

FOUR YEARS AT CORNELL
FALL 2008 & SPRING 2009
TimeLine 8.28.08 SCHEDULIZER SHUTS DOWN: Capping a year of scheduling difficulties with the newly-implemented PeopleSoft course management system, Add/Drop caused frustration for students trying to plan their fall semester courses in August. On the same day, Schedulizer announced that it would disable its services for Cornell students because of a disagreement with the Registrar. Schedulizer was brought back a day later, and the University administration worked to streamline PeopleSoft. 9.2.08 CLUBFEST PROTEST: A protest at Clubfest in August brought attention to racial issues at Cornell as members of various minority groups congregated to speak out against The Cornell Review’s controversial portrayal of minority students in its orientation week
issue. The Review refused to apologize for the allegedly racist remarks, prompting students to ask the Student Assembly to remove the word “Cornell” from The Review’s title. 10.17.08 FUCHS REPLACES MARTIN AS PROVOST: After former Provost Biddy Martin announced in the summer that she would be leaving Cornell to become chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University put together a search team to begin looking for her replacement. In October, President David Skorton announced to the Board of Trustees that Kent Fuchs, former dean of the College of Engineering, would become the next provost. 1.20.09 PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION: Barack Obama
was inaugurated as the 44th president and the first African-American president after his election in November. 2.10.09 GAZA PROTESTS ERUPT ON CAMPUS: In February, more than 1,300 black flags — each symbolizing one of the Palestinian or Israeli lives lost in the conflict — were arranged on the Arts Quad in protest of the Gaza crisis. More than half of the flags and accompanying signs were later removed from the Arts Quad, vandalized and rearranged to the formation of a Jewish star, igniting a wave of controversy. 2.17.09 HYDRAULICS LAB COLLAPSES: Cor nell’s Hydraulics Lab — a decaying stone building that projected out from Fall Creek Gorge next to the Triphammer
Footbridge and across from the Alumni House — collapsed in mid-February, ending any speculation as to how long the structurally precarious building would last. 2.20.09 CORNELL SEVERS TIES WITH RUSSELL ATHLETICS: Due to pressure from the Cornell Organization for Labor Action, Cornell severed ties with Russell Athletics. The company’s factory, Jerzees de Honduras, was shut down due to the unionization of its workers. 4.23.09 CHI ALPHA PRESIDENT FORCED TO QUIT: The Sun reported that Chris Donohoe ’09 was asked to step down from his leadership position in the Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship due to his homosexuality, igniting student demands for LGBT rights.
Endowment Plummets Amid Financial Crisis The financial storm sweeping across the globe took its toll on Cornell’s finances in Fall 2008. The University’s endowment, valued at $6.1 million on June 30, 2008, declined by at least 27 percent that fiscal year and the University faced a $200 million budget shortfall. Amid intense pressure from trustees, alumni and the rest of the Cornell community, the administration announced a series of sweeping measures to quell the loss of funds. Five-Percent Univer sityWide Cuts: An across-theboard budget cut of 5 percent was applied to all colleges, while the president’s and provost’s offices took a 10-percent cut. Administrators, staff and professors across the campus struggled to make do with their smaller budgets. Construction Pause: The University paused most construction projects to re-evaluate the necessity of each proposed project. Construction that was already underway, including the Physical Sciences Building and Milstein Hall, was allowed to continue. Cornell Increases Class Size
by 100 Students: Cornell announced that it would accept 100 more students in the incoming Class of 2013 in an effort to increase income from tuition and raise capital. Bond Sale: In March, Cornell sold its largest offering of taxable bonds, valued at $500 million The bonds sold within 30 minutes. Retirement Incen tives: In February, Cornell initiated two staff retirement incentive plans to reduce the size of its staff. As of April, all 423 employees who applied for the Staff Retirement Incen tive initiative were ac cepted into the program. Cut Courses: Due to budget constraints, the University decided in April that its Swedish, Dutch and ESL writing programs would no longer be offered. The Turkish program was also downsized. Library Closures: Facing a $2 million slash in its budget, the University library system announced in March that the Physical Sciences Library and the Knight Visual Resources Center would shut down, although study spaces would remain.

Students Celebrate Obama’s Election Obamania erupted in Collegetown just after 11 p.m. on Nov. 4, 2008, as Barack Obama became the President-Elect of the United States. People poured out of bars and crowded the streets as they soaked in the historic moment. “It’s crazy, oh, my God,” Leslie Tseng ’10 said. “Everyone is running up and down Dryden Road yelling, ‘Barack Obama!’ and setting off fireworks.” Celebrations began across Ithaca following Obama’s victory. Students congregated on Ho Plaza and stormed into Olin Library in a euphoric surge. Only about 30 percent of Cornellians are from
New York State, so many had already mailed their absentee ballots prior to the Tuesday election. Nonetheless, many students turned up to polling stations across the University on Election Day to vote for the next president of the United States. By 4 p.m., a short line had formed at the polling station in Robert Purcell Community Center. When asked about the turnout, a staff widened her eyes and simply exclaimed, “Huge!” An overwhelming majority of voters in Ithaca chose Barack Obama over John McCain, with the Illinois senator garnering over 85 percent of the vote.

or sleep is within reach — whichever happens first. And here it comes: Nostalgia. Nostalgia, for a time and place, for memories and stories, creeps its way into our identities. It unites us, because we know the rest of the Class of 2012 is writing a version of the same story. But it divides us, because what we identify with is and always will be based on our own stories, written in original thoughts and experiences. We need those stories. They help us know that as we leave the Hill and start new chapters, the choices we made here

e have this habit of fitting things into neat little boxes when we don’t know how to make sense of them. Our academic experiences tell us there should be a right and wrong box to fill in for every question. We even fit the “Cornell experience” to a package of checkboxes: a list of 161 things every Cornellian should do before graduating. We get rubrics for how our stories should be written, whether or not we choose to adhere to them. Four years ago, those lists sparked excitement for all the things we could and would do. But look-
The following editorial was originally printed on March 2. WHAT IS “SOMETHING SOLID?” WELL, it doesn’t really mean anything. The word solid is not a very descriptive word. Use it in an essay of some kind for class –– “yeah, I thought the reading was ... solid” –– and the professor will probably assume that you didn’t read the book. Come home and tell your friends or family that you had a “solid day,” and they likely won’t know how to respond. Recommend a solid restaurant to some, and it’ll be unclear whether they should go or not. In the world of journalism –– where every word is supposed to convey a specific meaning, where the difference between two synonyms, like “captured” and “seized,” tucked away in the middle of a paragraph can change entire arguments, and where the choice between those words can spark hour-long debates among editors –– the word solid should have no place. But there is another meaning to the word that is more descriptive and powerful than most others that you’ve likely read in these pages over the past year. It’s about an implicit understanding that stretches far beyond its straightforward definition. It is about something’s quality, its foundation. It happens when something doesn’t require a description, it’s just understood. Nothing more needs to be said. In fact, nothing more can really be said that would describe it any better. You just know. Over the course of this past year, the word solid has taken on a special meaning at our office. It happened when we knew we had picked the perfect word, or strung together a bunch of them, that conveyed exactly what we intended. It happened in our news coverage when we felt that we had meticulously researched a story from every possible angle. It was there in the opinion pieces we felt had airtight arguments that could convince even those who might disagree to concede that we had made a point. We admit that we didn’t always get there. But that was always the bar, and when we got there, we all knew. We wanted to close our tenure by thanking you all, our readers. It has been a pleasure serving the campus and Ithaca communities over this past year. We never saw this as our paper, but as a paper for our readers. And we hope that over the course of the coming year, you will find something in every section that might be best summed up in one word: solid.

ing back from our last days at Cornell, it’s hard to dodge a pang of nostalgia for what we’ve checked off and what we’ll miss out on. There’s still time to make the remaining “lasts” count, because that’s what we saved our bests for — right? You know, I don’t think it really matters if your last days at Cornell are your best or worst. When years or months from now you scramble for a foothold that brings you back to them, you probably won’t remember the bad parts. You’ll remember how the sky felt on the Arts Quad that Friday, after you completely bombed your final exam in — what class was it? It doesn’t really matter what we accomplish, or what we don’t. It doesn’t really matter what we’re told we should do. And it doesn’t really matter if we check everything off our lists. What sticks with us is the experience of trying, and failing. Or succeeding. What matters is how we collapse our little boxes and take control of our own stories. What matters is how we choose to remember. I’ve remembered, re-read and re-written a lot of stories. Since March they’ve been my own stories for a change, as I’ve tried my best to live away from the Ivycovered bricks, scribbled dry-erase boards and comforting smell of newsprint at 139 W. State Street. Now, after eight semesters of skewed priorities in the name of The Sun, friends and family are quick to ask, “So why did you do it?” Sometimes I laugh and shrug. Sometimes I groan. Often I half-sarcastically quote Kurt Vonnegut, that “I was happiest when I was all alone — and it was very late at night, and I was walking up the Hill after having helped put The Sun to bed.” But really, I think Vonnegut remembered it wrong. If I was happiest then, it was the illogical, giddy kind of happiness that comes with caffeinated sleep deprivation and anticipation of the week’s allnighters. Rarely was I alone — and usually it was very early in the morning, and I was driving all the way to North with a car full of night editors. Head full of Quark commands and oxford commas, stomach full of Shortstop, ears still ringing from Schroeder’s screwball playlist of choice. Or maybe he remembered it right. There was also the fiery, energized kind of happiness that comes with a hard-won scoop and anticipation of tomorrow’s front-page story. Sometimes I was alone — and it was almost always very early in the morning, and maybe I was driving to the plantations to watch the sunrise. Head full of half-thoughts and excitement, stomach still full of Shortstop, ears enjoying the silence until the paper is delivered
will somehow matter — trite as it sounds, we will all be a part of Cornell, because our Cornell stories will be a part of us. In the end, our choices — our words and actions — are what matter. They write our stories. They are all we leave, all we have, all we’ve been and all we will be. And, most of the time, they’re completely within our control. In the past four years, we’ve accumulated achievements and failures, memberships and leaderships, friends and acquaintances, and academic and nonacademic honors. Which one of these would you choose to define your Cornell experience? My answer is none of the above. Or maybe a little of all of the above. I do know this: My Cornell experience isn’t the same as anyone else’s, but a few shared pages stand out. I hope you know who you are, but to everyone who contributed anecdotes, inspired plot lines, edited my rough drafts and helped cure my writer’s block: My story would be dull without you. The moniker for this column, Collapse the Box, comes from the British street artist Banksy — opposer of dullness, champion of originality, hater of boxes: “Don’t just think outside the box. Collapse the box, and take a fucking sharp knife to it.” I’ve strived to “think outside the box” since sixth grade, when I signed up for Odyssey of the Mind (my first extracurricular activity, and the beginning of my path to overachiever-dom) and someone told me that’s what my goal should be. The “creative problem-solving” program also told me that if the rules don’t say you can’t do something, it means you can — and probably should. More creativity meant more points. That was all fine, until I realized that by trying to think outside of one box at a time, I was falling into a Matryoshka Doll of even bigger boxes. In the decade since I started thinking outside boxes, I’ve learned that unless I’m moving, or sending a package, I have little use for boxes altogether. I discovered that even if the rules to a problem say you can’t do something, there’s usually a creative way around them. And somewhere under The Sun between High Rise 5 and Collegetown, I learned how to deconstruct things like rules and boxes. It’s pushed me to write a much more original story. So forget the Big Red boxes, and just make your Cornell story a good one. Dani Neuharth-Keusch is graduating from the College of Arts and Sciences and served as The Sun’s 129th Associate Editor.

Reading the Graffiti And Watching the Sunset L
ibrary stacks are my favorite places to study. There’s silence. There’s the smell of old books. You’re literally surrounded by the accumulated knowledge of humanity. But maybe best of all is the desk graffiti — the result of generations of Cornellians thinking, procrastinating or goofing off. Those notes written on the metal carrels in the Uris stacks, for instance, are conversations between students of the past, available for you to read right now, and maybe for another student to add to in the future. They might be preserved for years before the desk is freshly cleaned or painted. A typical series of scrawled notes goes like this: “When you hear hoofbeats, think horses.” “Why not zebras?” “Why not unicorns?” “Unicorns aren’t real, dumbass.” And at some point, someone draws a picture of a penis. Some of the graffiti is meaningless, or even offensive. Some is philosophical and deep. All of it is the mark of past students, whose thoughts are still seen by the students of today. I’m not suggesting you should go out and write all over University property. But the notes have a certain sentimental quality. For better or worse, students are literally leaving their marks on Cornell. Whatever schoolwork they were doing at the time may be long forgotten, but their graffiti still exists and is still read
by the people sitting at those same desks. Some students strive to have a tangible effect on Cornell, one that will remain after their short undergraduate years. But some students — a few architects, engineers and pre-meds come to mind — are too busy with classes and grades to have much time to devote to activities outside the classroom. That’s no matter. Having a tangible effect on the community isn’t actually what’s important. That cliched goal — to “make a difference” — is, I think, just a stand-in for something deeper and more significant: be careful with the little time that you have. Many seniors this time of year bemoan how quickly their college years passed. For me, if it weren’t for the financial downside, I’d stay at Cornell for another four years. But unless you “forget” to take the swim test, you’ll have to leave when the time comes. The fact is that college goes by in a flash. None of us had time to do quite everything we wanted, or, at the very least, we didn’t take the time to really appreciate the things we did. And that’s the lesson of the library carrels. Stop for
a second. Look at what’s around you. If you want to add to it, do it. Be the person who writes the philosophical message, or draws the penis, or just sits back and takes it all in. So if you’re still in Ithaca when you read this, go sit
Michael Linhorst Peanut Butter Crackers on the Slope. Watch the sunset. Walk to a street or a restaurant or an academic building you’ve never seen before. And if you’re no longer in Ithaca, do the same: Take some time. Look at the world around you. Think about what you want to be doing, and do it. College goes by fast, but the rest of life does, too.

Tales From the ‘Best Years’ B
y the time I entered my freshman year I was sick of receiving advice. Every adult in my life was either telling me that the next four years would fly by or that they would be the best four years of my life. Both of these phrases of wisdom were followed up by, “Enjoy every second of it!” The idea of four years of my life flying by seemed like an exaggeration to me. As an 18-year-old, then future doctor-to-be, I was fairly certain that the next four
and narrow path of medicine, I had a revelation when I realized I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I never could have made the leap from pre-med to communication without the advice of my family and friends. Throughout freshman year, I quickly began to comprehend that while I would continue hearing things like, “College is the best four years of your life — enjoy every second of it!,” people were also giving me some useful information. And I
Chloe Gatta Gatta Read This years would feel exactly like it sounded — four years, which was 20 percent of my life at the time. And I was confused as to how every adult who spoke to me was under the impression that it would be the best four years of my life. Why did they all seem to know what my experience would be like before I actually experienced it? By the time I entered sophomore year, I had gone from a pre-med Spanish major to a communication major with a marketing minor. I quickly realized that going through four years of organic chemistry, physics and the all-encompassing, Slope Day-consuming genetics, wasn’t for me. Also like most students who decided to veer off of the straight
began realizing that I may have been interpreting the word “best” incorrectly. Best doesn’t necessarily mean challenge-free. While college is an amazing experience, if done correctly, it won’t, and shouldn’t, be the best four years of your life. College is about reflection, taking risks and making mistakes, and those types of things can’t happen without bumps along the way. Of course, some of the decisions that you make will literally be life-altering. You’ll be deciding what organizations to join, and what classes to take, and these choices will eventually lead to and influence things like your friend group and future career path. But the fact that these choices are life altering shouldn’t scare you into never making a
decision. Cornell is referred to as a bubble for a reason. While Ithaca may be “ten square miles surrounded by reality,” it’s also a “safe-zone” for you to take risks. As you go through your time at Cornell, you’ll develop a support network, and those individuals are the ones that you can fall back on and seek advice from when one of the leaps that you take doesn’t work out exactly like you expected. The first big risk I ever took was when I switched my major to Communication, and my life path would have been very different if I hadn’t taken that leap. But taking a risk doesn’t necessarily have to be something as large as switching your major; it can be something smaller, like stepping out of your comfort zone to join an organization that you didn’t know anyone in, or running for a position that you didn’t necessarily know you would win. While these risks that you take throughout your four years are often the most challenging moments, they are also the most memorable. These risks come with periods of reflection, and it is through the reflection and risk taking that you develop as an individual. When I made the decision to switch my major I took the advice of my family and friends and began getting involved in extracurriculars. I joined Up ’til Dawn — the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital organization at Cornell — because I wanted to stay involved with the medical world, but I also branched out and joined The Sun and Peer Review Board, because I wanted to explore every
possible option that I had at Cornell. Each time I took a risk, large or small, I always sought the counsel of my support network. I finally understood how important it was to take advantage of the advice that I was receiving from those who had experienced these things before. Each time I’ve taken a risk I’ve reminded myself that college is just one chapter, and while it may be one of the only times in my life when I have the opportunity to take risks and make mistakes relatively worry-free, it’s important to remember that this isn’t the end. Just because we’re going out into the world doesn’t mean that our career paths are set and there’s no wiggle room. I fully expect my career path to change throughout my life and recognize that what I do right after college may be completely different from what I’m doing ten years from now. The ability to be flexible and open to the idea of risk has been one of the most important skills that I have learned throughout my time at Cornell. Congratulations to the Class of 2012! The day that our parents and their friends told us would come too quickly absolutely did. These four years really have flown by, and I hope you all agree that they were four of the best years of your lives — but I know there are more “best years” to come for all of us.

on a job well-done. Four years of hard work -- you did it! You might think now it's all over, but it's really it’s just beginning. Graduation is only the end of the beginning of a lifetime of learning, but with your impressive academic career, no doubt you’re ready for the next phase of your life. You’ve worked so hard – keep up that ethic and you will do great things in the years to come. I remember your first step, your first day of Grade School, your first day of High School, and your first day at Cornell. You’ve accomplished so much! The footprints you’ve laid, each step has been a building block for what comes next. Today you are being recognized as a great student, but you are so much more than that to me. Your diploma will open doors, and with your dedication and determination you will certainly make a name for yourself. The world will see by-lines: Alex Kuczynski-Brown. But I will always see my daughter, of whom I am so very proud.

Ever since you were a little boy, you set your goals high and went after them with a dogged determination. Your persistency has served you well. Just as you were taught when you were younger on the basketball court to go after a loose ball like a “mad dog after raw meat” this is how you have pursued your professional career goals. We have always had a deep admiration for your selfrespect and awareness of who Adam is and what Adam is all about. We are proud of your self-assuredness. You have never let anything stand in your way to achieving your goals. Always set your goals high, your dreams even higher, and never stop fighting for what you truly want in your life. We wish you much success and happiness as you start the new chapter in your life at Eataly in NYC. Love, Mom, Dad, Matthew’10, and Alex

To our son Pedro: We are so proud of you! We cannot forget when you made your decision to apply to Cornell. You created a wonderful movie-clip playing soccer...playing soccer for you was like a dance!! Full of passion and emotion!! Then, on a very cold day in January 2008, you went and visited the University all by yourself! In August, your father took you there as a freshman. It was so hard to let you go, but your determination gave us the comfort that you were making the right decision. Many trips were made to watch you play and cheer for the Cornell soccer team! Each time the same renewed feeling that the right choice had been made! Four years did not pass quickly for us, but sure did for you!
CONGRATULATIONS, PEDRO!!! You deserve lots of success and happiness!! Love, Mom and Dad
