Last week, President David Skorton posted a new entry in his Huffington Post blog on the subject of student health and well-being. "Many institutions, including Cornell, have adopted a philosophy of freedom with responsibility," wrote Skorton, "giving students the freedom to choose their own actions but holding them responsible for the choices they make." But, he added, there are certain key areas "where I believe we in higher education need to step up our efforts." These include high-risk drinking, hazing, mental health promotion, and concussion prevention.

As a recent story in the Daily Sun pointed out, not all incoming Cornell students are happy when they get to campus and discover where they will be living — and with whom. The situation is even tougher when there are more first-year students than expected and you end up bunking (expensively) in a converted lounge.

Big Red Bird Print E-mail

According to a paper recently published in The Auk, the journal of the American Ornithologists Union, three Cornell graduates discovered a new species of bird during a 2008 expedition in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The fruit-eating Sira barbet has a black mask, a pale belly, and a scarlet breast, and DNA analysis confirmed that it is, indeed, a distinct species.

The Cornellians — Michael Harvey, Glenn Seeholzer and Ben Winger — gave the new bird the scientific name Capito fitzpatricki in honor of the Lab of O's executive director, John Fitzpatrick.
