Ithaca, NY 14853
This morning we left our motel in Cortland, NY and drove about 30 minutes via Cortland, Dryden and reached Ithaca around 8:45 AM. We parked our car in the visitor lot and headed to the Arts & Science Information session conducted by Asst Dean of Admissions and listened to him for about an hour.
Then we went on the student lead tour the Cornell University campus. We visited the clock tower, book store, Sage Hall, Ives Hall, various departments and the finally arrived back at the Information Center near the Day Hall. The tour took about 1 1/2 hour.
We then went to the Kennedy Hall and ate at the Trillion food court. The food was good. It was almost 1 PM. Soon we went to the Cornell University Bookstore and bought some memorabilia for our trip back home.
Soon he left Ithaca and headed back to New York city. We decided to take NY-79, I-81, I-380, and I-80 to reach our motel in Ridgefield, NJ. By the time we arrived it was almost 6 PM. We checked in and drove to the campus of Columbia University's Riverside Height campus. Since it was summer there was plenty of light, the sun was starting to set and we took some video and photos.
We drove and ordered pizza take-out and went to bed by 10 PM.
