First day of classes! Pretty quiet start to the term, but I already helped my first student find Ives 305! Now doing some office hours under the tent in the Katz courtyard. No takers on office hours yet, but nice to see some students hanging out and studying under the tent. An echo of the Quonset Hut spirit from ILRs early years! #ilr75 #ives305 #cornell #firstdayofschool
