Human Interest Stories

  1. These are two inspiring stories and you have to root for these kids to succeed at Cornell. Hopefully, they will be able to adjust to being surrounded by kids without financial worries. If you read the comments on the story about Josh Knight, there's one jerk who says Cornell alumni don't have as much pride in their school as grads of other Ivies; but there's also a perceptive comment further down by another kid from a low-income background about what it was like to be at Cornell.
