A special walk will take place Thursday night in an effort to improve relations between Ithaca residents and those with ties to Cornell.

The first annual BEAR Walk takes places from 6-8 p.m. in the Collegetown and Belle Sherman areas of Ithaca.

Cornell’s Assistant Dean of Students, Julie Paige, says this type of event has been a success near other college campuses.

“We took it after an event at Penn State called the LION Walk (Living In One Neighborhood),” Paige said. “It’s really about bringing the neighborhood together. It’s an opportunity to build relationships, and break down boundaries.”

The walk will also include city officials, and members of the city’s fire and police departments.
