Early Sunday morning, Denice Cassaro sent a slew of inflammatory and stream-of-consciousness emails to the Cornell Community. In these messages, she insulted various student groups, boasted about her sexual conquests, and reflected upon her purpose in life, all in her trademark colorful writing style.

ESPN and the Winter X-Games have just announced a partnership to have a charity event at Cornell University’s “Libe Slope.” The sport calls it an exciting move which will attract more college-aged fans to the sport. It is to take place in February 2013, obviously assuming that there is snow. The course will start at... MORE »
Recently, Cornell committed to spending 1.56 million dollars to make the gorges safer. To put that in perspective, that’s enough money to cover almost forty years of Cornell tuition – reduce our campus’ carbon footprint by 30% – or, at the very least, it’s enough to get someone better than Taio Cruz for Slope Day....
