Early Friday morning, the Cornell University Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery near Uris Library on Ho Plaza, where suspects brandished a gun and took the belongings of two Cornell students. The robbery was reported at 2:49 a.m., according to the press release.
Ithaca police responded to two separate robbery cases last week and arrested two men on Thursday responsible for stealing from the Elmira Savings Bank on South Meadow Road and from a 71-year-old female.
There are many aspects to “adulting” that I’ve learned over the past two years since my acceptance to Cornell. I applied for a student visa and traveled alone on a plane for the first time, set up and started managing my own bank account, signed my first housing contract with a landlord, got my first paid job, began to shop for groceries and cook regularly — the list could go on. I thought that achieving such milestones allowed me to become one step closer to adulthood, that I had done a pretty good job of making it through these rites of passage. I was completely wrong. One thing that I had discarded was a sense of concern for safety.
