Lovely buildings that will remind your children of Hogwarts. I think this is the prettiest campus I've seen, with the different buildings, the gorges, being set on a hill overlooking the town and Cayuga Lake.

The Spacecraft Planetary Imaging Facility (SPIF) in the Space Sciences building off Garden Ave. is a must-see experience for anyone interested in astronomy. SPIF is an imaging library that has every photograph taken on every lunar/planetary/asteroid satellite mission since the first Ranger moon mission. It is a NASA funded facility so is free to the public - your tax dollars at work. The librarian is extremely friendly and helpful and will help you find any images you might be interested in. You have access to the same images as professionals and can do your own serious planetary research. Call ahead to be sure the librarian is available - he does programs for school groups. The only problem is parking which is limited on campus, and the campus police are not very forgiving (speaking from experience), so check at the campus entrance for public parking facilities.

Beautiful, big university. Visited with my high school junior. Not sure if she would like it due to the size.

We didn't realize how big the campus was! It is beautiful and the old buildings are great. I wish we would have know about the hotel right on campus, we would have tried to stay there!

The school is beautiful and there are a lot of picturesque areas to see on campus.

I wish there was more parking and there were more directories showing you where you are!

An Ivy league, beautiful campus in upstate NY, pretty amazing!

Walked around this gorgeous campus. Buildings are varied and beautiful. Weekend parking pretty easy but students were just coming back from break. Would have liked to see more of the gorges but it was really windy and cold. The Sage chapel is truly a gem.
