What is your overall opinion of this school?

I’ve personally enjoyed my experience there. There are a plethora of activities for students together involved in, but the tuition is pretty expensive. There’s also a concern about depression and suicides among students along with the lack of sufficient mental healthcare, which is pretty unsettling.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cornell University is my dream school. It is my home away from home. I learned so much being here so far and Cornell has opened many doors for me in my few years here. The campus and scenary is beautiful. The food is pretty good. The academics are pretty tough but going office hours and having study group sessions help a lot.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school and the people are very friendly. However, for a school that strives to be tolerant and accepting, it's one of the least tolerant places I've been to if you don't have the same political opinions. For example, I wouldn't feel safe walking around in Trump gear. There were a few instances of "intolerance" (i.e. one of the fraternities chanting "build the wall" by the Latino program house) and now I think the university is going overboard trying to stop these things from happening. On campus housing is pretty safe - I feel comfortable walking back to my dorm alone at 10-11 at night. Off campus housing in Collegetown though, not so much. There were several instances of people being assaulted in the middle of the night there. Most of the extracurricular activities I tried to join were so competitive, most people were rejected. Project teams, club sports, etc...the only clubs I could get into were the ones that accept everyone, like SHPE and SWE.

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.
