Gorges, a great museum, even a climbing wall. The architecture is classic American campus. If you're in Ithaca, don't miss a visit to big red.

This was a enchanting and comfortable place for a wedding. The staff were very gracious, competent, and helpful. The location and parking were adequate for a college campus. Very reasonable. Good for a crowd of less than 150. Very easy during spring break.

This university has it all. The best of the best! Just being able to tour the campus is a historic event in itself. The campus is beautiful, the architect is astounding, and research there is top-notched! Go and experience for yourself!

We loved the University. Went on a tour. It's a true Ivy League, first rate college in every sense of the word, in a most gorgeous setting -- so the trip felt like a vacation.
