Klarman Hall Time Capsule to Commemorate Humanities in 2016

This week, the College of Arts and Sciences began accepting faculty, staff and alumni contributions to the Klarman Hall time capsule, which is scheduled to be buried during the formal dedication of Klarman Hall on May 26, according to the University. The capsule — which will be placed between Klarman Hall and Lincoln Hall — intends to encapsulate the way that students learn the humanities, according to Kathy Hovis, University writer for the College of Arts and Sciences
Submissions should answer the question, “If you could talk to a Cornell student 50 years from now, what music, movies, shows, books and art do you love today that you would want to make sure they know about? Why are these works so important to you?” according to the University. Gretchen Ritter ’83, the Harold Tanner Dean of Arts and Sciences, said that this capsule will commemorate the year 2016 as it was a particularly special year for the humanities at the University. Klarman Hall, which was completed and opened up to the public this year was “the first building dedicated to the humanities on Cornell’s central campus in 100 years,” Ritter said.

MALPASS | Make More Bad Decisions

Everyone’s really limping to the finish line here. Doesn’t it always feels like spring break comes a week too late? Look at me, it’s 3:30 in the morning and I’m just getting around to writing my column the morning before it’s due. While I’d love to say this is the result of the unfair hand of fate, I will be perfectly frank, if I had simply spent more time in the library, I could have finished the 200 some pages of reading, honors seminar essay, opinion column and the rest of the work I had in timely fashion and still make it to bed at a reasonable hour. But instead I chose to go out twice last weekend, stay up way too late and generally procrastinate in my various fashions.

HICKMON | Get Your Mans

Hi friends, how are you? I hope March is treating you well and that prelims and other commitments aren’t taking your sanity like they are mine. I am writing because well, there is something I need to get off my chest and it is important so I hope that as you read these words, you truly take them to heart. Dear White People, marginalized communities need you. I am sure you’re wondering what I mean by that.

Charter Weekend Culminates With Barton Ceremony

The University’s Charter Day weekend celebration — an expansive three days centered around the Festival of Ideas and Imagination — came to a conclusion with the official Charter Day Ceremony in Barton Hall Monday. The ceremony brought together major University figures, from faculty to the Board of Trustees to the University Archivist, who marched in academic dress gowns along a plush red carpet to their seats in the opening procession. University Marshall and Prof. Emeritus Charles Walcott, neurobiology and behavior, stately led the procession while Vice Provost Judith Appleton — holding the silver-ribbed University Mace with white gloves — and President David Skorton was last in the procession. Descendant of founder Ezra Cornell, Ezra Cornell IV ’70 carried the framed University Charter, proudly raising it above his head as he walked to his seat. He placed it on a stand in the middle of the Barton Hall stage, where it stood in the background of the speakers throughout the rest of the ceremony.

Dessert Plates and Disappearing Acts

We’ve all got hidden talents. While some boast of their flexibility, others brag about their burping abilities. This week, I realized that my gift is half as impressive but arguably more disturbing than belching your ABC’s. My strengths lie within my stomach — a chamber that tolerates more sweets than any human being should ever be able to consume. Logs of cookie dough never get to see the oven light of day.
