Cornell BEARS

For exactly one year, I worked with a campus mentorship program, Cornell BEARS, as webmaster. It was a valuable experience – I used a modified version of the Gale-Shapely matching algorithm to match up mentees and mentors, and I was also rewarded with successful stories of mentor-mentee pairs. I also made some improvements to the […]

The Last Exam of the Semester (ft. OCaml)

My last exam was yesterday from 9 – 11:30. It was for CS 3110, the traditional “weeder” CS course at Cornell. Rumor has it that it’s less difficult compared to previous years, which makes sense as more students are taking it, which would increase the overall range of scores and could very likely lower means.

There is no more getting lost or confused about classes and affiliation requirements and such. I feel completely at home already. Living on West, although […]

Fall 2014 Predictions

Differential Equations I’m taking this as a means to an end, that end being Physically Based Animation, taught in the Spring. That being said, I heard the professor is really […]
