So Cornell Days is upon us! For all of the ambassadors on campus that means helping out the accepted students find where they need to go and answer any of their concerns. One family stopped and asked about the food science program. Without a second thought I launched into an explanation of our introductory food science class where students work in teams to develop a new ice cream flavor which is then featured at our Dairy Bar for the next semester. I even shared how one of the recipes was bought by a major ice cream company! As the family walked away, the other ambassador with me, turns and says, “You really know your facts! But I guess that comes with the territory when you’re a senior.”
Now I don’t know if the underclassman meant to imply it, however that comment made me feel old! And I’m just 21; I’m too young to feel old!
