Our first morning on campus was spent with a leisurely walk to breakfast with the ILC group plus a couple people we met yesterday. So far I have loved the selection the Robert Purcell Dining Hall has to offer. Again, the Cornell has been very considerate toward dietary restrictions and they have list the main ingredients (dairy, wheat, etc.) of each dish. Next, our group split up into our restive classes to simulate and time the walk down from the dining hall to our classroom.

While in Philadelphia, I was reading the Brown blog, where many of the students' writing revolved around the unbearable heat and humidity that they were experiencing in Providence. Today, the temperature in Ithaca was beautiful once again, with a temperature no hotter than 70 degrees with a consistent breeze throughout the day. It was even raining in the later afternoon! We are all blogging from the Mary Donlon Hall lounge, where the temperature would be suitable for a jacket and long pants. Today was even predicted to be the warmest day of the week! Maybe we will need to unpack the jeans out of our suitcases!
Overall, the day before our classes started was relatively relaxed. We all familiarized ourselves with the campus and prepared for what the week has on store for us. I cannot wait to share my first day in Freedom and Justice with you all tomorrow night!
