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.

CAM intern Heather McAdams '14 explains.

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.

Three Other Ways to Read CAM Print E-mail

On the right side of the screen, there's a link called "Digital Edition."

When you click that, it will take you to an electronic version of Cornell Alumni Magazine that looks and feels like a real magazine, with pages you can flip and all of the content of our print edition (including ads). This is another way to read the magazine, one that we hope will have strong appeal to many of you and allow us to reach more Cornell alumni. It will not replace this website or the familar ink-on-paper version of the magazine — it's just an alternative. This new version of the magazine is the culmination of a two-year effort by a task force led by Bill Howard '74. It has been endorsed and supported by the Cornell Alumni Association and the Cornell University administration.

Please take a look — just click "Digital Edition."

* And now . . . the iPad and Android versions are available too!

Rest in Peace, Bill Vanneman '31 Print E-mail
Wednesday, 27 April 2011

Cornell University has lost one of its most ardent and steadfast supporters. And all of us at Cornell Alumni Magazine have lost one of our best friends.

Bill Vanneman '31, who recently celebrated his 102nd birthday at a party in Boston, died in the early morning hours of April 26. His death came just a few months before what would have been his 80th Reunion — which, of course, he was helping to organize and planned to attend. His legacy will live on in the lives of all the Cornellians he touched, and in the Bill Vanneman Outstanding Class Leader Award, presented by CACO each year. Bill himself was the first recipient of the award, in 2005.

Bill served for many years as class president and class correspondent, and he almost never missed a reunion. Late in his life, he was a member of the Continuous Reunion Club and came every year, raising the spirits of all who saw him on campus. Always humble, Bill would graciously deflect praise for his many achievements and simply express gratitude for all that Cornell had given to him.

Tributes have been pouring in, including articles in the Daily Sun and The Essentials, Cornell's official blog. Also, a memorial page has been established where Bill's many friends can share their memories.
