Toothpaste University

Today, Eric, Alex, Mr. Chan-Law, and I embarked on our trip to Colgate University. After not being in a car for such a long time, I actually got excited for the ride to Colgate. Throughout the whole trip, all we saw were cornfields and cows. It wasn't until we were in Hamilton (the city where Colgate is located) that we saw true civilization. We had a quick lunch in a stereotypical "mom and pop" store so we wouldn't be late for the campus tour. Nevertheless, the food was delicious.

Once we got to the university, the tour started almost immediately. Just like all the other campus tours we went through some academic buildings. One nice part of the tour was when we toured the inside of a freshman dorm. After the tour, we attended the info session which went over the logistics of the school. Along the way, we learned that Colgate University is the same Colgate for toothpaste, and they have a freakish obsession with the number 13.

When we got back to Cornell, the four of us decided to play some pool before meeting up with the others for dinner. After dinner, all of us (the Cornell cohort) went to Ithaca Mall and watched The Amazing Spiderman in 3D. Overall, the movie was very exciting, partly because I haven't been to a movie theater in a long time. After the movies, we went back and relaxed in the Donlon lounge.

Overall, it has been a fun-filled day. It was refreshing going out of campus and exploring other large of New York. In fact on the way back from Colgate, we saw an Amish woman riding a carriage on the road! New York, you never fail to show me something new.
