KEMPFF | Living in Hockeyland: On the Documentary and Cornell

Like the small communities featured in the film, hockey is the only sport in town at Cornell. Compare the crowds at Cornell’s homecoming football game to a preseason hockey game and you can clearly see the importance of hockey here. It’s an especially relevant film that all Cornellians should watch, as it will give you a better appreciation for the game and those who play it. 

KEMPFF | We Need More College Bars

Bars bring much of the excitement back to college. A big part of college is the opportunity to make new friends. It’s easy, however, to fall into the same social ruts.

I’ve personally witnessed binge drinking and unsafe conditions at the hands of these organizations.
