CHASEN | What Form of Cornell Alum Will You Be?

I’ve been pondering for some time about what I wished my final column for The Cornell Every day Solar to be about. Regardless of solely being part of The Solar for my senior yr, writing these columns and interacting with those that took day trip of their day to learn them has been one of many extra satisfying elements of my time at Cornell. At first, I thought of taking a type of “victory lap,” and discussing what I’m most pleased with about my time at Cornell. However I spotted that I’ve spoken advert nauseam concerning the varied actions I used to be lucky sufficient to be a part of, in addition to the assorted individuals who have made my time at Cornell a terrific one. I additionally thought of discussing my largest regrets over the course of my time in Ithaca and what I might do if given one other probability at it. However with lower than one month from commencement, it doesn’t make sense to play a recreation of “what-if,” particularly given I’m fortunate sufficient to have few regrets about my time right here, regardless of going to varsity throughout a world pandemic. I even thought of giving extra recommendation for folk simply beginning their Cornell journeys, however I figured Ted Lasso had that coated.

Ultimately, I made a decision it was time to look ahead, quite than look again. I’ve spent loads of time this yr fascinated with exactly what number of occasions I might plan to be again in Ithaca within the coming years, and for which occasions. I’ve thought of arising for Homecoming, in fact, but in addition for Applefest, hockey video games and probably even a visit to Syracuse for the New York State Honest. However on a deeper stage, I’ve thought of a query that may outline my relationship with Cornell any further: What kind of Cornell alumnus will I be? I encourage each member of the Class of 2023 to do the identical as we depart campus for the ultimate time as college students.

When most individuals consider Cornell alumni, they consider one factor: donations. They see varied buildings round campus named after older alumni, in addition to varied professorships, division chairs, deans and even coaches’ titles being funded by alumni donations. They see the far-off quantity that’s the College endowment, and surprise how all that cash can be used within the coming many years.
