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.

Huge campus! Lots of walking and construction everywhere. Very scenic but there does not seem to be too much to do in the area,

We toured the university as our son will soon be a student there. We were there last year but discovered many things we missed before and looking forward to finding more.

Understandably places such as Cornell focus on prospective students. But I thought I would find an online tour for someone who wanted to drive through the campus. All I found were videos of how great it is to be a student there. Creating a suite of youtube tours could be a senior project for someone - wouldn't have to cost... More

This is an absolutely beautiful campus. Weather was picture perfect the day we were there. Summer session must have been in session as there were a number of students on campus, many enjoying the sunny weather. Cornell is Ivy League and I'm sure it's difficult to gain admission. Surprisingly, we were stunned by the number of "students" who could not... More

t was raining when we took a personal tour of the university. So we were not inclined to walk the entire campus which is both beautiful and large. One of the nicest spots on the campus is the law quad, which was closed off to foot traffic due to construction. I grew up in Ithaca, and had not been back... More

I remember my first visit. I took a terrific student led tour and was very impressed. I recently returned to Ithaca and got a look at all the changes. A very impressive and beautiful campus. Well worth the time to visit if you are in the area.

Cornell is a must-see if you travel to Ithaca. The campus is beautiful any time of year and the hotel on campus is awesome; run by the students at the School of Hotel Management within Cornell. My son is a "Hotelie" and loves Cornell. We have been to several baseball games and a hockey game... all super fun! The students... More
