Cornell Students Party Too Much

13 06 2010

From the Cornell Era:

“Junior Ball week is getting rather overdone. What with the Sophomore Cotillion and the Glee Club concert and the Junior Promenade and numerous private and fraternity parties and the entertainment of guests, for a large number of students the entire week is consumed in pleasaure; more than one student cut all his university engagements last week. [1]”

The same argument could be made today, but the date of his editorial was February 11, 1893. The Cornell Era was a sort of predecessor to the Daily Sun. 

Some arguments never grow old.

Ha, I just read that same quote last night. For more evidence you may want to check the Daily Sun Digitization Project (or even some of my articles)
