Summer is ending in Ithaca. Hordes of Cornell students are descending on the bustling town. Or trying to — with the usual local planning wisdom, construction work is still continuing on routes 96 and 96B, causing traffic tie-ups.

But the students are back. You don't have to go to campus to see that. All you have to do is visit the parking lot at Wegmans. Soon the dorms will be filled and the new students will be contemplating electric sheep. Baaa!

Summer at Cornell Print E-mail
Friday, 25 June 2010

If your memories of Cornell feature blizzards and death-defying trips up ice-covered Buffalo Street, consider a summer visit. It's nice in Ithaca … really. The sun shines, the lake glistens, and there's lots to do on campus.

Sign up for a CAU program. Send your kids to a sports camp. Shop at the Cornell Store. Visit the Mark Twain exhibit in Kroch Library. Marvel at the art (and the views) in the Johnson Museum. Or just wander around campus, taking in the sights and watching new buildings go up. It's everything you loved about Cornell, without the final exams and frostbite.

DeLuca Succeeds Tambroni as Lax Coach Print E-mail
Friday, 18 June 2010

In a pair of moves as swift as the game itself, it was announced that lacrosse head coach Jeff Tambroni was leaving Cornell to take over as head coach at Penn State and Ben DeLuca would become the new head coach of the Big Red.

In his ten years as head coach, Tambroni compiled a record of 109-39. His teams won or shared eight consecutive Ivy League championships and went to the Final Four for three of the past four years. They came within seconds of winning the national title in 2009 before falling to Syracuse in overtime.

DeLuca '98 was a four-year letter winner as a defenseman and has served the team since 2002 as an assistant coach and associate head coach. He was named the Richard M. Moran Head Coach of Men's Lacrosse on Friday, June 18.

For more information, see the announcement at the Athletics site and the online story at Inside Lacrosse.

AEM Becomes a School Print E-mail

Thanks to a $25 million gift from the family of John Dyson '65, the Department of Applied Economics and Management will become a school. According to an Associated Press report, the school will be named after John's father, Charles, who helped to found the International Monetary Fund.

John Dyson is chairman and CEO of Pebble Ridge Vineyards & Wine Estates, which operates wineries and commercial vineyards in New York, California, and Italy. He has served as New York's commissioner of commerce and chairman of the New York State Power Authority. In 1984, Dyson received the CALS Outstanding Alumni Award.

In the Cornell Chronicle story, Dyson says that he hopes his family's gift will help the new school to hire the best faculty possible and provide its students "a broad education, not just a business education."

Thanks to a donation by two alumni — Henry Bartels '48 and Bob Staley '57, MBA '59 — the front of Willard Straight Hall is now illuminated by four handmade iron lanterns. As reported by the Ithaca Journal, the lanterns were crafted by local artisan Durand Van Doren, who also made the beautiful gates that adorn Minns Garden. The new lanterns complement the iron gates on the Straight's front doors, made in 1925 by Samuel Yellin. As noted by the Cornell Chronicle, Van Doren's ironwork can also be seen at London's Shakespeare's Globe theater, the Women's Rights park in Seneca Falls, New York, and Great Camp Sagamore in the Adirondacks.
