A Day in Life at Cornell

This is a record of one of my days in life at Cornell. However, this day is not exactly a typical day because it’s right before Dragon Day (March 27th) and as a proud engineering student, I’m making the phoenix that attacks the Archie’s dragon during the parade. I can assure you that even though it may seem a bit hectic and tiresome (which it was), it was tons of fun and a superb example of the dynamic college life. Now I’ll shut up and get straight to the list.

7:25 am Got up and had a simple breakfast

7:50 am Ran from North Campus to the Engineering Quad for my 8am math discussion because there was a quiz and I was almost late… 8ams are not that pleasant to go to when you have to walk to the other side of campus

8:00-11:25am Math discussion, BioG1500 lecture and BME1310 (Intro to Biomedical Engineering) class. I enjoy my Biomedical Engineering lecture the most because we learn about many state of the art medical devices in much more depth than the articles you read in the science sections of New York Times.

11:30 – 12:20pm Lunch break at Goldies with friends (or alone) Spoiler Alert: It’s totally cool if you sit alone for lunch in college, everyone has different schedules and it’s usually hard to coordinate eating schedules.

12:20 – 1:10pm Physics discussion

1:25-4:25pm BME1310 Microchip lab at Weill Hall

6:00pm Met up with Phoenix society member to make the phoenix for Dragon day at the High Voltage Lab in College Town

6:00am Finished the phoenix (at last!) and returned to North Campus.

4:20am Working hard on the Phoenix’s head

Dragon Day Parade(the next day) Here, we’re holding the phoenix on the Engineering Quad and eagerly awaiting for the dragon to come so that we can defeat it (which we never do, as a tradition).

Let me be honest here, I usually don’t go to bed at 6am in the morning. In fact, this was actually my first time to stay up this late. I usually go to bed at around 11:30 or 12am so that I can wake up for my 8am the next morning……

So there you go, my day in life at Cornell. I hope this gave you some insight to what college life is like and if you are a future engineer, sparked your interest in joining the Phoenix Society!
