Cornell Parents/TidBITS Meetup with Adam & Tonya

Our son Tristan will be attending Cornell University this fall, and since we mentioned that fact in TidBITS, we’ve gotten a handful of messages from readers whose children are also going to Cornell. If you’ll be in Ithaca this weekend, send me email at [email protected] with your iMessage-capable phone number or email address. We’ll see if we can meet at a Cornell reception or arrange a dinner on Friday or Saturday night.

Adam, congratulations to Tonya and you for this, all parents love to see their kids follow their steps.

Thanks! It really is enjoyable to see Tristan heading into the same sort of future that we did back in 1985.

Just wait until your grandchildren choose to follow your college footsteps. [grin] Been there, done that. Quite a joy!

Heh! Both of Tonya's parents and my mother also have various degrees from Cornell, so they're experiencing that as well. A lot of people in our families, including my paternal grandparents, went to Cornell as well. It's not one of those ritzy legacy things — most were simply taking advantage of the state schools at Cornell offering a top-notch education to New York residents for less than most other comparable institutions.

Just to note: we had an extremely enjoyable time hanging out and having dinner with a couple of TidBITS readers who were bringing their kids to Cornell. Let us know if you're ever coming to Cornell for some event...
