Cornell University is not just a school, it’s a ~culture~. Despite each of us hailing from such diverse backgrounds, there are a few idiosyncrasies that undoubtedly unify us as students here. We’re just so quirky! Here’s a brief list of some things you’d only understand as a Cornellian:

1You have the nicest legs out of all of your friends from home.

2You’re always prepared to have a knock-down, drag-out fight about whether Appel or RPCC is better.

3As soon as the temperature rises above 40 degrees, you break out the shorts and the birks.

4Sake bombing is a favorite weekend activity.

5You complain a little too much about your upcoming prelim.

6Homecoming is the only football game you’ll ever care to attend (unless the darty is just too good (or you just don’t make it because you know… it’s football)).

7You can sing along with the chimes, reciting every word of the Alma Mater (LOL totally, right?).

8You’re willing to drink God knows what out of a giant fishbowl on a fine Wednesday evening.

9You feel no shame in chasing down the TCAT because it is your saving grace.

10At some point, you’ve wasted a significant amount of your time at Cornell Health and you can come up with a number of reasons as to why they are useless.

11You have a CTB sticker on your laptop or water bottle.

12Those memes you post in the Cornell Facebook group completely defame President Martha Pollack, but you know it’s fine.

13You spend too much money at Zeus.

14You’re willing to wait in line to get into the library during finals week.

15And finally, you hail from Westchester.
