Print More


Vying for increased communication between Cornellians and Ithacans about issues facing the community, the Student Assembly held an open forum Thursday where issues of housing and opportunities for public engagement were identified as areas requiring action.

Beginning the session with questions from the moderators — Kristen Reichenbach ’16, host of “Talk of the Town” on WVBR, and Nick Rasch ’15, vice president of external relations for the Cornell Forensics Society — four out of the five panelists cited housing as one of the most pressing issues that the community faced.
