What is your overall opinion of this school?

I don’t have much experience with the Cornell campus and community, but what I do know makes me feel like I’ll be able to make myself at home there. The environment around Cornell is full of nature trails running through the woods and by the rivers. I saw them last summer, when I visited the campus, and it reminded me of Mississauga, Ontario, where I spent my first ten years basically living in the woods. School has made it increasingly difficult to get out of the textbooks for the past few years, so getting back to nature, especially in the winter, is something I’m really looking forward too. While nature is important, I also like the developed parts of Cornell. I’ve never been a fan of sprawling, smoke-filled cities, so the scale of Ithaca, small enough to feel comfortable and relaxed, yet still home to a variety of communities and interests. For me, the food scene is especially important. I had the pleasure of eating at several excellent Ithaca restaurants during my visit, and I remember the shrimp risotto from Moosewood being especially good. Academically, the impression I have of Cornell is significantly more balanced than the computers focused university I expected before my college research and visits. I have found the Cornell students leading campus tours and representatives hosting information sessions to be excellent speakers from a variety of fields, and I am eager to see the campus that help them develop these skills.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell has a big enrollment and because of that there's so much diversity in what you can do and study. There are really interesting classes (like Wines) and interesting student groups (like Japanese Taiko drumming ensemble). It's a unique combination of the excellent academics of an Ivy League institution mixed with the incredible opportunity that comes with having such a large and diverse student body.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At Cornell you have a wide variety of clubs and activities that you can get involved with. It is really easy to get involved in things you may have not otherwise thought of before. I have been exposed to so many new things here that I otherwise wouldn’t of had the opportunity else where.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University. My aunt and uncle work there. I live one hour from Cornell and attend concerts there. My mom lived and worked in Ithaca for 4 years and loved the Commons and all Ithaca has to offer. I enjoy the outdoors and hiking the waterfalls and gorges there. Cornell is located in a perfect place!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming to Cornell has probably been the best choice I've ever made. With a student population of over 20,000 but a student-faculty ratio of 9:1, it's that perfect mix of big enough to find a community for almost every niche interest, while also providing a personal academic experience. Cornell was the only Ivy League I applied to because coming from a low-income background, I was put off by the elite school stereotype of snobbishness and lack of diversity, but when I looked into Cornell, I found a school truly trying to make all students feel welcome, regardless of ethnicity or economic background. I'm happy to say that upon arriving at Cornell, it was quickly clear that Cornell practices what it preaches in this respect. Another thing I'd highlight about this wonderful university is how it's possible to get both breadth and depth; I'm double-majoring in math and music and have been able to seriously engage in both subjects through research and extracurriculars. I'm part of a fantastic choir, the Cornell Chorus, in which I am the only music major—people from all across Cornell, from English to engineering to environmental science, come together to make excellent music while still being very serious about academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a high school senior who will attend Cornell University in Fall of 2018 as part of the Class of 2022. I have visited the campus once on a college tour in the summer of 2017. Overall, I love Cornell University because of its strong focus on academics and its "Any person, any study" motto. I also enjoyed the sights and gorges around campus, and I am excited to explore the campus and meet different people who are passionate about their hobbies and studies.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Cornell as a junior transfer from a small community college in upstate New York. Coming from a much smaller, less-motivated school, I was very nervous about attending a much larger and much more reputable school. I was worried that it would take me a while to make friends and that I would feel not as intelligent in comparison to all of the other brilliant students that go here. After half a year I can safely say that attending Cornell is the best decision that I have made (or possibly will ever make) in my life. I've found a wonderful atmosphere here with extremely welcoming students and faculty, all of whom push me to do my very best and think beyond the classroom on a more broad, scientific basis. I am majoring in Entomology, the study of insects (something which most people have never heard of). My department is very small but it contains some of the best and brightest entomologists in the world who have long, successful histories of pursuing science and inquiry. At Cornell, I have been able to join a lab working on bumble bee toxicology and am currently a co-author on a paper that is currently being written by myself and a wonderful post-doc that I've been working closely with. The opportunities at Cornell are limitless and I've been able to pursue virtually anything that I've ever wanted to or was curious about. Growing up I've always wanted to get into rock climbing and because the small town I grew up in didn't have a climbing wall, I was never able to pursue this interest. At Cornell, I am part of the rock climbing club as well as Snodgrass and Wigglesworth, the undergraduate entomology club here on campus, and Scientista, an organization aimed at promoting women in science. Now that I think about it, the only complaint that I have regarding Cornell in general is the parking availability and parking pass price. Like many other large schools, there is virtually no available parking and the spaces that are open are miles away from campus. OTHER THAN THAT, I couldn't praise Cornell more!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell's motto "any person...any study" holds true in the sheer variety of classes and opportunities available to the students. This is a school with world-class programs in both engineering and hotel management! This beautiful campus is home to brilliant students from all parts of the world with unique perspectives to share. There is so much you can do here at Cornell University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academic life at Cornell is amazing. Professors genuinely care about you doing well and are extremely knowledgable. Housing sucks, plain and simple. It is not guarenteed for upperclassmen and off-campus housing is grossly overpriced. On campus housing is limited and far from luxurious.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Cornell University is a wonderful place to challenge yourself by surrounding yourself with driven, intellectual individuals. Between academics, extracurricular activities, and social events, there is plenty to do and infinite opportunities to grow. The university also cares deeply about its students and ensures their safety and well-being at all times.
