We stay at Cornell for a summer professional retreat, and love everything about it. Rooms are dorms, which is a fun stay as an adult many years past college. Food is in the dining halls, and is fresh and delicious. They make their own ice cream and pies, how can you beat that! The campus is gorgeous, but bring you... More

Magnificent visit to this Ivy League school with our youngest. One of the best overview sessions introducing all to Cornell's academic and life offerings and its admission process. Magical campus tour, albeit the challenges of the terrain. A stop at their Creamery is a must if you like ice cream. Faculty serving as academic advisors, wow! Academic stars teaching undergraduates... More

There is always something to see and do. Don't miss the ice cream. They make their own on campus. It is so rich that it is above standards for selling off-campus! Summertime - there are a number of concerts and plays, some for free, others, a nominal charge. For outdoor plays, bring your chair and a picnic supper.

What can I say as an Alumni, it's Cornell! It has a beautiful campus, a beautiful Quad, nice places to eat, a great dairy store and just nice to drive around in. The Plantation Gardens are a nice place to spend the day. Okay so our football isn't great but we can only wish for a winning season. I will... More

You actually feels the history of science when you walk around the campus area. Beautiful buildings and picturesque surroundings.

Very nice clean campus. Nice and hilly with a lot of character. Tough to find the campus store but a wonderful town to live for college.

While exploring the area we made a walk on campus a priority - it was well worth the stop! The mix of very old buildings with all of the new architecture makes for a fascinating mix of history! Do not miss the suspended bridge over the gorge - breathtaking!!! BOOM!

Since I went to a major competitor University, I can really review the University other than as a resident of the area. We live only a few miles away. The buildings are Historic and modern, a mix of both. It is a very nice campus to walk around. Lots of tries, nice views. People are friendly. It is generally a... More
