Being on campus at a time like this is an immense privilege.
And we want to make sure that we can preserve the opportunity for other people.
Each of our actions affects someone else, either directly or indirectly.
We should not just protect ourselves but the greater Cornell and Ithaca community.
Everybody has to pitch in and do their part.
It doesn't take a lot to ruin the whole semester for everyone.
We all have a certain set of responsibilities, which we must acknowledge on a daily basis.
Doing the daily check every morning.
Practicing social distancing.
Wearing my mask.
Practicing good hygiene, washing my hands, using hand sanitizer.
And I've also been actively reminding people that's what they should be doing as well.
I would say wearing a mask is a small price to pay for keeping everyone on campus safe.
It's a sign of respect to the other people around me. I mean I'm respecting their health and well-being by wearing my mask.
It actually looks pretty cute.
And as long as you're following all the guidelines--
Even though it is different from previous years--
We can still have a great time, and we can still hang out together. Just do it safely.
I think it's also important to remember that you're never alone because we're all in this together. And we each care deeply about one another because at the end of the day, we're all part of the same loving and cohesive Big Red community that is Cornell.
