This week, Campus Couture is dedicated to the guys (Or, more specifically, to the girls who have made a sport out of watching guys). Even with all the diversity that Cornell has to offer, we were still able to classify the male population into six categories. Girls, here’s a guide to help you sort them based on their style.
