Not sure what to say. There are only eight Ivy League Schools in the world . . . carry on. Enough said . . . .

We visited Cornell University for my daughter. We liked it very much. It is a great university for students looking to stay away from city.

Very helpful library staff, excellent resources and helpful, polite student body. A famous Ivy League law school right in Upstate New York.

get your hiking boots on for this campus, but it's as gorgeous as the city itself, even if it does have a tendency to push a liberal agenda down everyone's throat... came here for baseball and you really MUST see the solar-powered clock designed by Bill "Science Guy" Nye on a building in centerfield... softball is a lonnng way off...

the campus is big an there are a lot of hills. we enjoyed the views from the hill where you can see the lake. make sure you wear comfortable shoes, as there will be lots of walking. also, the parking can be scarce.

Nice campus. too bad it is so expensive to attend. A good mix of old and new buildings. Ithaca is a nice town

We were visiting the university, but also took the opportunity to walk around, eat breakfast at Trillium, and lunch at the Ivy. Gorgeous Fall day with lots to do and see. The campus is a gem.

If you come to visit around Fingers lake , don't miss to visit here, try also to join a tour of the university, I didn't have the time to do it but I am sure next time I wish to sleep in the hotel inside the university and take a tour.
