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.

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?).
