What is your overall opinion of this school?

This institution has great professors but staff and care for students needs much improvement. I was in a car accident late 2016 and so I was disenrolled to avoid unnecessary tuition fees during the 2 months I was in the hospital and when I returned to the college hoping to reinstate my enrollment I was told I would not be able to until my balance was covered in full. I begged the school to tap into school funds and help me and my request was denied, instead the school raised money to renovate the football field. I also was told that since I was not a student I was unable to reside in my old dorm room, despite the fact that all of my clothes and belongings were being held in there. Having no place to go I had to stay in friends dorms until the earliest flight home a week and a half later. I did not have money and was not given a meal pass so I would have to settle for snacks throughout the day to get by. After about 5 days of staying with friends I explained my situation with a resident Assistant (student friend of mine) and they allowed me to stay in my room. I had a broken back, hip, pelvis, and hand from the accident along with nerve damage in my left leg and two dislocated shoulder cuffs. I contacted a church and they held my items for me for a year because I had no way of getting them home. Mice got into two boxes and I lived off of a duffel bag full of clothes because the school offered no assistance to me in my time of need. I reached out at least two times after this and was refused aid yet I kept receiving tuition statements in the mail. Send your children somewhere that is willing to care for them ����� For the professor's who care � For an institution who's main concern is money

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited Cornell last week and I had a great experience. The college was very beautiful, and I really admired the preserved historic buildings. It is a small school, so I can tell that there is a strong sense of community, especially with the OCAAT curriculum. I think that this is a great curriculum that is really effective, and has me excited for the next year!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Cornell. We take One Class At A Time. So for 18 school days, or 3.5 weeks, you are in one class. You only have one class to focus on, one final to study for, plenty of time for sports, clubs and other activities/organisations. It is a very small college, so between 5-20 students in a class (although it is rare you have 20). The block plan isn't for everyone, but I encourage everyone to give it a shot. It is an expensive school, but they have plenty of scholarships, and if you are serious about education you shouldn't be scared of money.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell College is a fantastic little school in rural Iowa. The block plan is a really great way to learn, because it keeps class sizes very small. You really get to know your professors and your classmates. If you're looking for a bigger, more connected school, this isn't the one for you, but it's great for anyone seeking a close-knit campus in a beautiful setting.

Cornell College pushes students to build their character and skills inside and outside of class. Overall, I have learned who I am as an individual at Cornell College and how I can plan my future accordingly. I am positive that I will be ready to jump into a different environment at the end of my Cornell College career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school. I grew up in Colorado and was very nervous to go away from home, however, the people are amazing. There are always something to do and people to hang out with, if wanted. I love the small class sizes, it allows for you to have the chance to have relationships with professors as well as other students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell college has given me the confidence required to fail. The professors take advantage of small class sizes to get to know their students, which is invaluable for a person searching for a personable education. The small town of Mt. Vernon is secluded, which keeps the students on task with their academics and extracurriculars, but it is not so secluded that there is no fun to be had. Most of all, the students at Cornell are what make the school special. With an unrelenting desire to better their community and our world, Cornell College students truly have made me a better person, and are sure to make you better too.
