“I am thinking tonight of my old college town”

Cornell Keepsakes

From class rings and freshman beanies to the ticket stub kept from the first football game of the season, these are the souvenirs kept by students at Cornell over the past 150 years. Serious, silly, romantic, and nostalgic are the mementos and ephemera that connect us to our past. They tell our story to our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and possibly to strangers who never knew us, but to whom we are connected through our shared experience of Cornell.
