Ithaca, N.Y. — Well done, Chief Zoner.
Skorton has accepted. He will take the challenge Wednesday at 6 p.m. outside of Donlon Hall on Cornell’s North Campus.
“Vice President of Student and Academic Service Susan Murphy also will be there, and also will be taking the challenge,” Cornell spokesperson John Carberry said in an email.
“For the record, ice and water provided by Cornell Dining.”
Skorton’s wife and Professor of Molecular Physiology Robin Davisson will join him.
Now, the question is who Skorton will challenge next. To help him figure it out, we’ve posted some suggestions here — vote away! (Harvard’s president has already taken the challenge, so that’s out.)
