Day 3: Riding the Heat Wave

Things heated up on day three of the Alumpics, as the competitors put their best summer photos forward. Long distance shots of campus, places of interest, and the night sky abounded.  Except for Cornell’s freeze-frame action shot, the day three submissions were downright peaceful. Maybe it’s the heat that makes summer the most tranquil of seasons.

Now, to the medals:

Columbia scored a gold medal three-peat with 557 likes, and Big Green out shined Big Red for the silver, with a stunning starry sky. Dartmouth received 350 likes for that sparkly shot, and Cornell got 361 for a GORGES photo of Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick ’09 fulfilling his promise to jump into the water in a full suit if enough money was raised for hunger.

Stanford called a time out this round and did not post a photo.
