Cornell University is currently under construction almost everywhere you go, but we were able to drive around and get a look at many of the buildings, including the I.M.Pei museum building. The buildings on campus include every type of architecture I have ever seen. The Greek houses were amazing; these are not the run-down houses of many campuses, but vast,... More

This was a fantastic sensory over load for people interested in learning more about wines, wine tasting, aromas, and growing of grape. I would do it again there was so much to learn. Highly recommend it. The professors were terrific and the course accommodated every age group, young adult to senior citizens.

Took some visiting family to show the University where my son graduated years ago. I have been there many times. The visitors enjoyed the vast expanse of the Uni with it's own unique character of the buildings from old architecture to the very modern. It was raining so we could not get inside the many interesting places like the library... More

I attended the pdp, 2014 at Cornell. It was my fist visit to Ithaca.The school is awesome and beautiful. The school is a city of it's own. The learning was great and very rewarding. Prof. Cathy was fantastic. I will surely be back next year to complete my certification.

Campus was too big. Although it had very scenic views. Therre was lots of walking and construction ongoing everywhere, very limited parking. Dorms were very old.

Very nice campus with a wide range of things to do. Diversity is a wonderful feature also. Having our daughter graduate from Washington University in St. Louis, I like Wash U's campus better because they work very hard to keep the campus buildings fit into the look of the campus. Cornell has a wide array of architecture, which sometimes looked... More

Great small conference venue, but parking at $10 a day weekdays was a bit more than expected. I have been here before and found it a bit difficult to get to easily even with GPS.

The buildings somewhat resemble UK colleges, very nice setting. Also the falls that are in the campus are very nice.
