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 »
Over the years, Cornell University has done a lot of research on mice and how they are affected by certain factors. Thousands and thousands of mice are kept by many labs on campus, but in a special area where they will never escape. The word never is very strong, but not always accurate, as 2,500... MORE »

People go missing all the time, but it is a rarity at Cornell for someone to go missing. Unfortunately, some student cannot find his girlfriend in Uris Library. On Friday morning, dozens of signs appeared all over the library with a picture of a blonde girl and a phone. The phone number is a Georgia... MORE »
We all remember Clippit, don’t we? Well, if you don’t maybe this will job your memory….Clippit was our good friend from Microsoft word who used to pop up at the most convenient times to give us helpful hints about what we were doing. Mark Zuckerberg remembers Clippit. He is now trying to bring a version... MORE »
1. A Photo Framed of Yourself: you know that you’re in a terrible relationship when you boyfriend gives you a framed picture of himself for Valentine’s Day. Yes, GQ rated us the doucheiest school in the country, but your boyfriend takes the cake. His graduation photo with the cap and gown…what are you his Aunt?... 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 »
So almost 6 months ago exactly I had this great idea of posting music every Monday. It worked really well that first Monday (so not really at all), but then I got sidetracked by, well, drinking 4 days a week and somewhat succeeding in school. So forgive me for being absent (read: honestly i’ve been... MORE »
In what is now being described as one of the greatest success stories of the century, five ex-convicts from Long Island, previously incarcerated for defrauding the Educational Testing Service, have all become executives of multi-billion dollar firms on Wall Street. “After getting arrested for taking the SATs for 30 other students when I was...

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 »
Another semester finally over…time sure flies when you’re living the life of a pompous Ivy League douchebag! To give you a little recap of what happened, apost and I have joined forces to bring you the ultimate Cornell Basement (formerly known as BigRedMyCampus) semester in review.

We’ve just received word that Cornell freshman Jimmy Applebaum has been stranded on Cornell’s campus since missing his bus home to Great Neck, Long Island last Tuesday.
