August 12: We received the sad news that Jim Hazzard '50 passed away yesterday. Jim was the director of alumni affairs from 1985 to 1995, which meant that he was an ex officio member of the Cornell Alumni News committee as part of his service to the alumni community. In recent years, he often called or wrote with information and suggestions—usually something relating to well-deserved recognition of a fellow alum or faculty member. Jim was tireless in his devotion to Cornell and Cornell alumni, and I'll miss hearing from him.

Stupidest College Ranking Ever Print E-mail
Thursday, 21 July 2011

We have issues with U.S. News & World Report and most of the other publications that offer college rankings. But GQ has just won the prize for the stupidest college ranking ever — although, to be fair, they just excerpted it from a really stupid book. Read all about it on Gawker.

Then read this spot-on rebuttal by Tony Manfred '11.

. . . didn't go to Cornell.

But the campus on the Hill bears a striking resemblance to Hogwarts.

Congratulations to Joe Nieuwendyk '88, who has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. At Cornell, he led the 1985-86 team to a 21-7-4 record and the ECAC title, and he was named an All-American in 1985-86 and 1986-87 before departing for the pros. In the NHL, he was on Stanley Cup-winning teams in Calgary, Dallas, and New Jersey. Nieuwendyk finished his NHL career with 564 goals, nineteenth on the all-time list. He is currently the general manager for the Dallas Stars, and his Big Red #25 jersey hangs in Lynah Rink next to Ken Dryden's #1 — the only two numbers ever retired at Cornell. And now both of those players are in the Hall of Fame.
