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.

Walking throughout the Cornell campus is a trip back in time and ahead into the future….the 150 year old campus boasts plenty of ivy styled buildings for the architecture buff…but new additions like the new Cornell Dairy Barn and Gates Computer Sciences Center are space age true..Exquisite view of downtown Ithaca and surrounded by beautiful gorges and falls, plus a...

Very pretty campus with beautiful buildings, old and new. Many walks/gorges within walking distance. Amazing view of Cayuga Lake and the campus from the clock tower. We were there for one of the concerts in the tower, well worth climbing the stairs for. You could walk around the campus and find beautiful sites any route you take. Our daughter also... More

My boyfriend and I are in our late twenties and recently did a trip through The Finger Lakes. We really enjoyed the fairly easy but scenic hike at Foaming Falls on Fall Creek. We were also very impressed by the vast campus and beautiful architecture. I had read that it's one of the prettiest campuses in the U.S. It's definitely... More

Such a pretty campus! Lots of ups and downs, lots of waterfall. It can be a state park! Definitely a good place to walk around.

Cornell, with its unique architecture, sits high in the hills overlooking the town of Ithaca. With its high scholastic standing, academic rigor and health-conscious organic political correctness the Cornell culture pervades the city below. The libraries are renowned and there is serious scholarship going on up there. The Lab of Ornithology and its many trails at Sapsucker Woods are gems... More

We just had a wander around to have a look - the site is beautiful, and you feel like you're walking through a movie set almost - especially as we were there at the start of term!

Beautiful setting on the hill with a lot of nice architecture and green space. This campus is huge and that allows a lot of space between buildings. There are some beautiful gorges and some other trails around the (pond?) or lake. However, Cornell is very very hilly! It seems like every place is uphill from wherever you are. There is... More
