Cornell's oldest dorms stand at the base of Libe Slope. Each morning, West Campus residents get a solid workout climbing the steep slope to central campus classrooms and libraries.
Throughout the day, chimes in the McGraw Clock Tower at the top of the slope mark the passing hours. Daily concerts by student chimesmasters feature Broadway hits, Beatles favorites, and Cornell's alma mater.
In the evening, students heading back to their rooms take in spectacular views of the sun setting over Cayuga Lake and the hills on its western shore.
