No pressure.  Laurie Call has risen to the challenge. She has been accepted to Cornell continuing the century long lineage of Calls wearing the red.

Don't assume her family got her into Cornell, Laurie did it on her own. She has a 97 average at Batavia Notre Dame and will graduate with 28 college credits. Laurie still has found a way to play sports year round. She runs cross country, plays basketball and softball for the Irish. Her love is deepest on the court.

With all of the potential and the world at her feet, Laurie is ready to try it all in Ithaca.
