Pew Engineering Quad

in this section

The Pew Engineering Quad serves as home to the majority of the College of Engineering’s facilities. When the weather is nice in Ithaca you can often find students lounging in the sun or tossing a frisbee with friends in the afternoon. While somewhat difficult to see in the panosphere, we Engineers are very proud of the sundial, designed by Dale Corson (president emeritus and a former dean of the college) and built in Cornell’s machine shop in 1980, which is accurate within 30 seconds. In fact, Engineering Student Services comes out with a weekly newsletter called The Sundial that informs students of different opportunities and events on campus.
