In recognition of a $50 million donation from alumni Peter Nolan ’80, MBA ’82 and Stephanie Nolan ’84, the hotel school will be renamed the Cornell Peter and Stephanie Nolan School of Hotel Administration.
Last Thursday’s Student Assembly meeting saw six resolutions passed, addressing issues that ranged from the University’s ties to ICE to international collaborations with countries charged with human rights abuses.
A proposed dual degree program between the School of Hotel Administration and China’s Peking University raises concerns from Cornell faculty about engaging with a country accused of genocide and censoring academic freedoms.
I want to love Thanksgiving ー family, friends and an abundance of food ー but I have never really been a Thanksgiving person. Thanksgiving has the classic foods that everyone looks forward to, but I just don’t get what’s so special. Turkeys kind of freak me out because they’re so big, sure cranberry sauce is good but it’s over-hyped and I don’t understand why mashed potatoes are typified as a Thanksgiving food. For all the whining I do about Thanksgiving, it’s hard to not get caught up in the spirit of it. Fall is my favorite season ー the leaves change colors, everything is so crisp and it finally starts to get cold.
Opening a restaurant in the middle of a global pandemic is crazy, and critics would say it’s impossible. Sitting inside of 2 Stay 2 Go during the soft opening just proves otherwise. Food is about bringing people together — something that’s been lacking in this technological, socially-distanced age. Most of us are spending all day in our apartments or dorms, staring at screens and lamenting the good old days when we used to be face-to-face and not mask-to-mask. The opening of a new Collegetown restaurant is exactly what students needed to pull them out of their hovels.
