    Fun quiz. I only leave comments on Cornell Dining on a napkin that can be displayed on the corkboard. That’s how I learned to do it in 1973 and I am sticking with it. None of this new fangled electronic commenting for me. Butter and syrup on my pancakes please. Hold the tetrazzini.

      In my day we called it Turkey Tetrachloride.

  2. Robert Scott Lawrence, Class of 1971

    In the period around 1970, the most delicious waffles were at Willard Straight cafeteria each AM.

  3. Melissa, Class of 1975

    I came to Cornell in ’73 and had no idea that they took credit cards for food places. But of course back then credit cards weren’t given to students like candy.

    • Linda G Webb, Class of 1983

      Add a question that shows how great they are at managing food allergies.

  4. Rosemarie Shield, Class of 1980

    I had a Cornell Card in the late 70s. It was a credit card we could use on campus.

    This brings back memories of working at RPU dining with a fun crew–1985-89.

  6. Dorothy Frank, Class of 1984

    Add a question about cross country gourmet. Do they still do that?

    Do they still serve Straight Cookies since that part was taken over by Okenshield’s?

  10. Shereen, Class of 1984

    All I know is the food was very good and I put on 20 lbs Freshman year! Took another year to shed it….
