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

The campus is beautiful. The waterfall on the campus is a nice break from the buildings if you need it. When walking on the one end of the campus you get a full view of the city around is and it's amazing. We ended up just lounging around for 15-20 minutes to take it all in. The campus has a... More

Most beautiful of the Ivy League Colleges. There is a waterfall in the middle of the campus and gorgeous grounds with views of Lake Cayuga. Don't miss the fresh Ice-cream made in the campus creamery. While there, take in the many waterfalls and gorges in the area.
