Cornell warms up to alumnus Andy Bernard

It's good to see Cornell is embracing its most famous son, even if he is a fictional moron. The Office's Andy Bernard, who often extols the merits of a Cornell education, is currently highlighted as one of several rotating features on the Cornell University School of Law's home page. It doesn't seem to be going over that well with some real alumni. My only complaint is that the banner just links to another site's list of Cornell quotes from The Office. It seems the law school is missing a great opportunity to have an article crafted in Andy's voice by the show's writers  or at least host a reunion performance by his a cappella group, Here Comes Treble. But that might be a step too far for a university that has never been too fond of the man who "graduated in four years" despite being "drunk the whole time."
