Classes are now over for Cornell University students, and the celebration begins Thursday.

The traditional event known as Slope Day has roots back to the early 20th century.

Plenty of detours will be in place on the Cornell campus today for drivers. Gates opened at 11 a.m. for members of the Cornell community. Thousands attend the annual event each Spring.

Slope Day this year features musical acts Ludacris and Matt and Kim.
