Cornell Blog Roundup

Old media meets new media. Chronicle Online posted a story about the Life on the Hill project that rocked the Cornell blogosphere back in August:

“Life on the Hill,” a pilot project online since late August, is an initiative of the Office of Web Communications, intended to give prospective students and parents a view of how students balance academic, social and recreational life. Six bloggers were chosen from the ranks of tour guides and Cornell Tradition members, out of more than 40 students who applied. Their blogs add to the dozens of others maintained by Cornell students and alumni (see list below).

Surprisingly, the list of blogs is comprehensive and uncensored:

Even this one made the cut. Although I am not sure how it got classified under “Other student blogs” while Overheard at Cornell and MetaEzra are “General Cornell blogs.”
