[MSC Stories] Overview

In short, I'm collecting stories about the MSC including its transition to a virtual presence in response to COVID-19. For the moment, the push is for video clips, but written text is also welcome.

MSC Scheduled hours

re: Mental Health Days:

  • For your Mental Health: the MSC is open.
  • For the mental health of our tutors: Staffing is Optional
    In short, if no tutor is around, stop by again. Tutors may stop in throughout the scheduled hours, but may not if they need to take care of themselves.

Favorite Mathematicians

Contribute to our list of Favorite Mathematicians! Famous or obscure, some are largely unknown because they were women, engineers, surveyors or some combination of less recognized groups. Check out the list. You can add to the list if you have a Cornell login. In most cases, the name in the list corresponds to the primary Wikipedia page for that person so you can readily learn more. We draw from this list to name Breakout Rooms in the MSC Zoom Meeting.

Zoom Configuration Tips


Use internet audio if you can. To avoid audio feedback issues, when you enter the meeting your settings default to audio only, with your audio muted.
You can elect to turn on your audio as desired.
