NYYI Social Media Highlights

This year, the social media campaign for the NYYI was bigger and better than ever, with a constant stream of photos and videos with the hashtag #NYYI2017 appearing on Twitter and Instagram. Ranging from the very academic to the strictly social, the buzz around the event and Cornell’s campus was undeniable.

Here are some of the highlights:

Starting off right, a quote from the World Food Prize‘s founder, Norman Borlaug, was scribbled on a blackboard at Cornell:

Great program! Very interesting, and I have learned a ton today🌱 #NYYI2017

Special guests at this year’s institute, such as Richard Ball (the New York State Commissioner for Agriculture and Markets) and CALS Dean Kathryn Boor exposed participants to real-world issues agriculturists face at home and abroad:

A casual field trip to Cornell’s Liberty Hyde Bailey Conservatory during some “structured” down-time allowed students to get close and personal with plant species from around the world:

Participants also had the opportunity to learn about biotechnology first-hand, from some of the world’s leading experts in plant biotechnology research:

Aside from the endless opportunities to learn, it seems that Cornell’s also boasts a great deal of natural wonder (this is also the grand prize winning photo from this year’s photo contest):
