What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell is a place that anyone could turn into a home. The University's academically-driven yet collaborative environment isn't overly-competitive or stressful and creates a healthy challenge for top-notch students. With over 14,000 undergrads from all walks of life, everyone is bound to find their group and become a life-long fan of the Big Red

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell University has a beautiful campus with a diverse group of people and a great range of activities. Both the academic and activities side of Cornell seems to abound and is plentiful. The facilities are a beautiful mix of modern and traditional architecture and there are many places for both quiet, individual study as well as group studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell is a really special place. The academic opportunities are endless: students are involved in so many different hands on experiences. Engineering students for example, participate in research and/or project teams, and many clubs are available for those interested in business, pre-med, pre-law, etc. Students are definitely challenged, but there are lots of resources, as long as you are willing to go out and advocate for yourself. No one will hold your hand here. Printing and laundry are not free, which sucks. There also isn't much night life in Ithaca that does not revolve around partying, so if that isn't your vibe, that may not be the most fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an extremely stressful university at times, especially because of the weather. Everyone has a drive to perform to their fullest extent which pushes others to do their best as well. Definitely a work hard play hard environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the environment and the people at my university. Starting my freshman year, there were many activities and meetings available to me for getting to know the campus and my academic resources. I always felt safe, even walking around campus at night on the rare occasion that I did. There were always things to do around campus, you just had to find the time to do them and you needed to have good ears around campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's alright. You'll get your Ivy League piece of paper, and like most people want, you'll get to use that to your leverage- it's true. You pay for the name. I've met some great people here, but the school itself is a moneysucker. For example, the school can't provide free printing to students but can afford to buy chairs worth 500 dollars each to sprinkle across campus, costing hundred thousands of dollars.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell University is overall awesome! As an international student, Cornell is the first school I have been in the U.S. I felt welcomed here. Either the students here or the teachers here are great. We have various opportunities to participate in either sports, concerts, showcases, or other recreational events. The environment here is also beautiful, with falls, gardens, modern buildings, and historical buildings as well on campus. More importantly, I met wonderful people here. Scholars are open to conversations, we discuss what ever we want inside and outside class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell University is a great school and is certainly incredibly well known for it's academics. There are always more opportunities than you have time for here which is a good problem to have. Cornell is a good investment but as with any school just attending Cornell will not in and by itself make you successful. In fact I would argue that any school including Cornell and any of the other Ivy League schools are just brands that people really associate with success, so its a good 'brand' to invest in but the difference between failure and success in your professional life will always be you, not the school you went to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have honestly loved my overall experience at Cornell. I believe that university should be a time to acquire knowledge and better yourself, and the academic environment at Cornell enables this growth. If you enjoy being challenged and enjoy learning more about subjects for which you have passion,I definitely recommend this school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming to Cornell has been one of the best decisions of my life. First off, I cannot exaggerate just how great the location is; when I was thinking about colleges, I didn't really give this much thought, and that would have been a mistake if I had gone anywhere else. Ithaca is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, and there are plenty of trails to explore it (and, surprisingly, they don't have heavy traffic)! The housing situation, especially past freshmen year, can be a bit of a nightmare. I was lucky to get into Risley (the creative and performing arts house), and I highly recommend checking out other program houses if you're looking for on-campus housing with great communities! The food in pretty much all the dining halls is fantastic (especially relative to other colleges) - if you can afford a meal plan it's definitely worth it. Academically, things can get stressful, but there are plenty of unique and interesting classes that should at least make your semester worthwhile, and most of the professors I've had have been very approachable. There are also plenty of study groups/resources (like the Writing Center) if you feel like you're struggling.
