Cornell is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever been to. There are waterfalls everywhere, unique buildings, and one of the most beautiful libraries I have ever been to!

We went on the campus tour and the engineering tour. Overall, the presentations were good. The engineering one was better than the general one. Campus is beautiful. But it’s also big so it’s a lot of walking.
