Cornell - my alma mater....

Happy to hear of a fellow Malaysian there, who managed to get multiple offers, from Opera Solutions, Accenture, Capgemini, Blackrock, Deloitte, American Express... I shall put it in this manner, but you definitely know that I am very very very proud of your achievement! Jia You!

Cornell total capital fund raising has reached USD1.8 Billion! That's definitely a huge sum, and it is still another USD2.2 Billion, before reaching Cornell's target of USD4 Billion. Hopefully, this target could be reached within the next 1 year or so.

Cornell University's President David Skorton and Provost Biddy Martin will lead Cornell's five-city tour to Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai, Oct. 22 to Nov. 3, with fellow faculty members and other university officials.

On the way east, Skorton will make a brief visit Oct. 21 to Rabigh, Saudi Arabia, to attend groundbreaking ceremonies for King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, the nation's first independent, international graduate-level research university.

This is definitely expanding Cornell's reach throughout the rest of the world!

Reading all these monthly updates from Cornell would really make me feel like missing my life in Cornell...

Anyway, life has to go on!
