Because I am an academic adviser for some Cornell students in my Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering I enjoy getting to know the hopes and dreams of these young people. Therefore, whenever I get to share a lift ride with some of the team members (or their coach) I like to lead them into telling me their stories. It is an enriching experience not only to hear their professional and personal stories but also to hear about their ski experiences and aspirations. (And it sure makes the lift ride go by fast!) Also this year one of my students Garrett Wafler has gone out for the ski team. He tried his hand at crew but discovered the time commitment was beyond his desire. I will look forward to his success with the ski team.
