School is back in session. So for this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, Jonathan Carey and Michelle Cassidy from the Atlas Obscura Places Team bring you two campus stories—from Gallaudet University and Cornell University—about the unusual traditions that can make collegiate life so strange.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
