Zombies Invade Ho Plaza!
Take a break from dressing yourself in as little clothing as possible and trying to play it off as a "costume" to watch this awesome zombie flash mob that took place friday afternoon on ho plaza - amazing. The best part is watching all the jaded Cornellians walking past acting like its totally normal....zombies, collegetown creepers, kids on segways - nothing phases us.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM BIG RED MY CAMPUS!
As I’ve not so subtly pointed out before, I personally believe that some of the University’s recently approved policies may have been thrown together just a bit quickly in an attempt to make the administration appear more responsible or relevant, without a ton of thought given to the actual problems at hand. For example,... MORE »
There is an epidemic of laziness spreading FAST around the Cornell campus. I understand that you are busy running off to your plethora of meaningful extracurriculars (yes, that means you, Squirrel Club), but I’ve become appalled by the way some of my fellow Cornellians have chosen to abbreviate some words that REALLY don’t take that...

This past weekend, it was nearly impossible to walk down College Ave without seeing bare legs, the occasional butt cheek, and multiple bare midriffs. That’s right people, Halloween has just passed and along with the physical pain you feel from eating too much candy and drinking too much Andre, you must now suffer the emotional... MORE »
Outraged customers and a tarnished brand are the result of a worldwide Blackberry Blackout, which left Blackberry users without email, BBM, or sanity. The problems curiously occurred at the same time as Apple’s release of the iPhone 4S. After an investigation by Research In Motion, the developer of blackberry phones, it appears... MORE »
Somewhere in between the wigs, hats, and jockstraps in the back of her closet, Lady Gaga once coined the term ‘paper gangster’. A paper gangster is defined by Urban Dictionary as a bulls*** fake wanna-be who tries to be ghetto, thinks he/she is from the streets, and is a punk-ass mother****** who should be listening... MORE »
A new business study from the Dyson School at Cornell shows that undergraduates only eat frozen yogurt at two points: when they are drunk or when the sun has completely set. When the Daily Sun article came out, students were confused as to whether or not this article was meant to be written for the... MORE »

Former Attorney General of the United States and member of the Cornell class of 1960, Janet Reno is making her way back to Ithaca on Thursday. With the election 6 months away and lots of hot issues at hand, Reno wanted to come back and speak with current students about an issue that has been... MORE »
Look, don’t let the title of this article fool you. I love being a girl. There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to have casual sex every weekend simply by wearing a low cut top with something shiny and distracting on it and mentioning that I have an N64 to go along with my piece... MORE »
This poor lil’ guy was found sitting in the middle of College Ave this past Sunday as the rain poured down and everyone in Ithaca resumed hating their lives and questioning why they ever came here in the first place. As told by an eyewitness who asked if the emo sitter was alright, “he said... MORE »
I’m not one to post serious videos, but I like to think of this website as a sort of distraction from all the craziness going on in your life. Especially with finals week wreaking havoc on us and everyone around us, it’s important to remember the reason we’re all here – this video should remind... MORE »
Looks like Cornell’s got itself its own sexy sax man…IT’S ABOUT TIME. MORE »
Today marked the end of my favorite time of the year (no, not steak and a blowjob day): Cornell Days. And as I found myself pulling overenthusiastic completely bullshit lies out of my ass to please the shining new faces of the Class of 2015 and their parents, I thought, “fuck, I’m old.” I also...

I’m shocked at the amount of effort Cornell politicians have been putting into their campaigns lately, especially since no one know what the fuck Student Assembly does in the first place. Now that Natalie Raps has long been victorious, here comes Alex Bores – another white dude in a suit and tie – running for... MORE »
I’m not exactly sure how this escaped my eye, but this picture of an Ithaca Craigslist ad posted before St. Paddy’s day speaks for itself. Remind me again why I was at Dunbar’s at 8 am when I could have been engaging in a “wee bit of shenanigans” with these guys? I clearly need to... MORE »
I’m on my video A-game lately and it’s all thanks to my fellow Cornellians constantly churning out hilarious vids for the rest of us to watch instead of doing more important things like GTLing. I stumbled up on this Bo Burnham-esque video from Jon Zucker ’14 and I couldn’t resist, he’s just so damn adorable.... MORE »
My favorite part about the upcoming SA elections is watching all the candidates throw down to determine who will be the ultimate campus leader at the ‘Nell. My girl Natalie Raps is running for SA Prez, and her campaign video is something you NEED to check out. I mean I haven’t seen a white girl... MORE »
Sean Doyle ’15 has got a little somethin somethin he wants to show you (and all his future Ivy League groupies). This may or may not be his admissions video (which leads us to believe that there must be a lot of lonely middle aged married women over at Day Hall spending late nights perusing... MORE »

Ah yes, it’s that time again – one year comes to a close and makes way for an even better one to follow. At midnight, we’ll ring in the new year in style no matter where we are: some of us will be vomiting on the sidewalk outside the bar, some of us will be... MORE »
