Ithaca, N.Y. — Thousands of students are descending on Ithaca’s East Hill Friday and throughout the week.

Today is officially move-in day, according to Cornell.

The day, and the move-in period more generally, can be thought to have 5 distinct effects.

They are:

1 — Excitement.

2 — Nostalgia.

3 — Traffic.
