Cornell Trucks In Grass From The Adirondacks And Plants It In Library Because It Has A Cognitive Relaxing Effect On Students
Cornell Sun – This morning, Cornell staff laid down a patch of grass inside Olin Library. From Sun reporter Duncan Yandell: ”According to a couple of the Libe employees and at least one guy at the circulation desk, it’s grass trucked in from the Adirondacks because apparently the feel and sight of it has a ‘cognitive relaxing effect.’ They were all installed by the janitorial staff early this morning.”
I used to give Cornell a hard time on the blog for being pricks but you know what? I think I love Cornell. They just do not give a fuck about being elitist or cocky assholes. They embrace it. I mean trucking in grass straight from the Adriondacks and having your janitors plant it in the library over night to give everyone a calm relaxing effect is as big a rich shithead power move as it gets and I’m digging it. Does Harvard have grade A grass in their stacks? Didn’t think so. Might as well be on welfare.
Although even though I’d be puffing my chest out for the outside world, if I’m at Cornell I’m kind of pissed we passed up on the therapeutic puppy rooms that every other school puts in every year for finals and went with fuckin dirt from some cliffs. But I’d never say it out loud.
