Home Stretch

Wow! What a crazy time here at Cornell.  The final round of prelims is finally over and finals are already in sight…Freshman year FLEW by!

It’s pretty tough to keep focused, especially with the weather shaping up, the NHL playoffs happening, and Slope Day just around the corner.  But it’s the home stretch…the most important academic time of the semester, yet one of the best social times.  This is where it really counts — a great time to shine at Cornell.

It also happens to be an exciting time for high school seniors who were recently admitted to Cornell.  Congrats!  The school grounds and even my dorm are filled with pre-frosh students considering Cornell.  It takes me back to the time when I came to visit Cornell as a high school student and fell in love.  The enthusiasm and pride that radiate from the tour groups as they awe at Cornell’s beautiful campus make me proud and remind me of what a privilege it is to study here.  And above all, I think that is my greatest motivation to finish strong down the home stretch.
