Winter break lasts five weeks so it’s a long one. The reason why they make it so long is to let students escape the worst part of Ithaca winters by having them come back during the last week of January. It also gives you plenty of time to recuperate from the fall semester. For all of the freshmen it’s an adjustment period when you have to get used to living at home again. After freshman year, however, the transition becomes part of the routine. Congratulations to those of you who were accepted early to Cornell. You can join the ED club that I am a part of. To those of you who were deferred or are applying regular decision, good luck! The college process is almost done. If any of you have questions about all the stuff they send to you after you’ve been accepted early just ask me. I’ve been there and done that.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa…I would’ve mentioned Ramadan but that already past, just wanted to point out that I didn’t forget about it.
