Our daughter proudly attends Cornell. It is one of the best Universities in the country and she is getting a fantastic education.

Aside from the formal reasons of visiting, you should try their Cornell ice cream, Cornell maple syrup and of course their fresh milk. Available at the cafeterias around campus. Don't forget to try their hotel too. Great cuisine !

This is a spectacular campus with incredible architecture. Make sure you stop by Uris Library and the White reading room - it's as if you stepped into a Harry Potter movie!

We loved exploring the Cornell campus. The bookstore is great (though a little expensive for titled products) and the foliage was spectacular, even late Oct. early Nov. The waterfalls are so unique and beautiful.

Prettiest campus in a very compact and liveable town. Comfortable, friendly, and historic. Activities galore. A city unto itself.

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...
