We did the engineering info session. Very informative. We also took the campus tour. We enjoyed it. The campus is huge, so wear good shoes for the walk.

Attended a couple of summer courses at Cornell, wonderful location, great walks through the campus, many nice quiet spots to chill out when not in class. Great experience.

Cornell has a beautiful campus. Plenty of great views and fantastic shopping at the Cornell Store. Check out the dairy shop to get some fresh made ice cream or yoghurt.

An absolutely stunning campus. My kids were awestruck by the buildings, the views, and the gorges. A great walk on a beautiful day.

Went for a reunion and was amazed at all the new buildings on campus. The campus is huge and the university seems to offer anything at all as a course of study. Caveat: Ithaca weather is often cloudy and damp--though not for our June reunion!

Beautiful hillside campus overlooking Southern Cayuga Lake with a large botanical garden and classic stone architecture. The Art Gallery's upper floors offer great views across the Ithaca valley.

The campus of Cornell University is so very large and filled with very interesting architecture. We wanted to see the dairy building as our friend was instrumental in its design. This building itself was an architectural wonder. Along with all the numerous natural wonders that...More

The campus is open to the public. Some building may be closed during the summer months. Ask at the central library and students office.
