Watching sunsets on Libe Slope is a beloved tradition for generations of Cornellians. But during the COVID-19 pandemic—when so many recreational activities are off-limits—it has taken on a special poignance, as socially distanced groups gather nightly to enjoy the summer weather and a taste of togetherness, safely apart.
UPDATE: These photos were taken in mid-summer. When students return to the Hill for fall semester, the University’s COVID safety plan will include additional requirements regarding the wearing of face coverings while on campus.
