Campus Doppelgangers

Sorry, I thought you were someone else

The term doppelgänger comes from the German doppelgaenger, literally meaning “double-goer.” Seeing one’s look-alike or “evil twin” has negative connotations, and is historically considered an omen of death in some traditions.  The look-alikes we have observed on the CC campus are surely no sign of evil to come, but they do cause temporary embarrassment when we call out to someone who we believe to be another.  With so many look-alikes composing a population as small as CC’s, we can only wonder how many each of us might have across space and time.
