Heartwarming: Ithaca Will Accept 50 Syrian Refugees and Steve from Cortland

Sometimes, a community comes together to make the world a better place. And that’s exactly what our inspiring little City on the Hill did when it was recently approved to accept 50 refugees, and also this guy Steve Schweitzer from Cortland.



“We hope that we’ve made a positive impact on the lives of these refugees, and that they will in turn help our community grow. And I hear Steve is pretty cool dude too. He does construction management or something like that,” said Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick.

Wow! We are so lucky to live in a progressive city with a Mayor dedicated to helping people across the world in need, even if one those people was doing fine beforehand but “just wanted to change things up, ya know?” by moving to Ithaca.

Many of the refugees come from war-torn cities and had to live in dangerous conditions before they were allowed to come to the US, and while Cortland is actually a fine town, Steve will probably like The Commons and Ithaca’s breathtaking gorges over wherever he would hang out there.

Wow. What an inspiring story!

Devastating: Mufasa Was Trampled to Death in a Stampede Of Freshman

Disaster struck Ithaca this Friday night, when it was reported that Mufasa, King of Pride Rock, passed away from injuries sustained after being trampled by dozens of drunk freshmen in Collegetown.

In a statement yesterday, Ithaca Police stated that Mufasa was hunting for food for his family on College Ave around 10:30 pm on Friday, when nearly seventy intoxicated freshmen exited a TCAT and ran in all directions in pursuit of the free alcohol and parties now accessible with their first taste of undergraduate freedom. By the time Mufasa could react, police claim, there was “nowhere to run.”

While Ithaca police continue to investigate the crime, university and city officials, students, and celebrities tweeted out their condolences and asked that everyone around the world honor Mufasa’s great legacy and memory:

Cornellians of all creeds, colors, and species are together in mourning, but also in celebration of the inspiring life led by Ithaca’s most beloved cartoon jungle beast. We hope you and Walt Disney catch all the gazelle you desire up there in heaven.
