Study break options at Mann have gotten a bit healthier thanks to a new addition to the library lobby: an apple machine. Once housed in the Plant Sciences Building, the unique vending machine has been recently relocated to provide crunchy munchies in a more highly trafficked area. As reported in the Horticulture blog, the machine is managed by members of the Society of Horticulture for Graduate Students (SoHo) (including Ph.D. students Jeremie Blum and Annika Kreye, pictured above), who pick the apples at Cornell Orchards and use the proceeds to fund guest speakers, purchase academic supplies, and support education, outreach and other activities.
Speaking of apples, the Orchards store opens for the season today! Hours are Tuesday - Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can read up on which varieties to expect, when, and their best uses, in this handy guide.
“When I was young, a teacher had forbidden me to say "more perfect” because she said if a thing is perfect it can’t be more so. But by now I had seen enough of life to have regained my confidence in it.“ - Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It

T-Vice ta renmen remèsye Komite Nasyonal Kanaval la ki te reyitere envitasyon li bay ekip la pou li te patisipe nan Kanaval 2016 la. Gwoup la te travay san souf pandan yon mwa pou yo kreye yon mizik kanaval ki se petèt youn nan pi bon nan lis djaz la. Gwoup la te vinn Ayiti nan preparasyon pou twa jou gra yo ak repete san rete pou satisfè tout fanatik li yo.
