Cornell University Top Questions

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

james

My fellow students. I find them to be fun and interesting. I am a fan of the greek life.

Ellen

I brag about the really great food at Cornell. The dining halls have really good food, with special nights such as Dim Sum nights or Breakfast for Dinner nights. Although it doens't seem like a big deal, it really makes a difference when you can come home after a whole day of classes and have a really nice meal.

Bridget

I love to brag about all of the fun, creative people and the diversity. I come from a tiny town so there is very little diversity and coming to Cornell was wonderful for just that reason--there are so many different types of people, so many different cultures and stories and languages. I love the group of friends I have and how everyone is so culturally intelligent as well as book-smart; we have great conversations!

Khullat

I refer often to the amount of funds that were available to student organizations on campus through fund raising - applying to various departments and high ranking profiles on campus was a sure way to see the campaign one was working for come to fruition. I also talk often about the quality of our computer labs and work spaces, as they were of great quality and were always well maintained. Another aspect that I fondly remember is the great financial aid I received from Cornell. Though sometimes the department personnel were difficult to work with, the aid really helped me.

Ujijji

When I talk to my friends about my school, I brag about how big it is, and how that allows for there be a whole lot of activities, programs, groups, and concerts on campus. In the event of a student-wide event, the campus is thoroughly united, and we all go out together and participate in the different events. Plus, because there are so many different people, Cornell caters to a variety of events to bring out the under-represented groups, and to expose new cultures .
