Whatever one's fantasies of college life in a great university, Cornell fulfills every dream. Because of its size, there is room for a vast variety of experiences, for all of the differences among students. Whatever a student wants to study, Cornell offers courses and majors and degrees. Because it is a rare hybrid of state-sponsored land grant university and private... More

If you have free time on a summer day go to the Cornell Dairy Bar at Stocking Hall on the east end of Tower Road. This is a great place for ice cream or dairy treats made on campus. Also, take a run through the Cornell Botanical Gardens and through the campus. Lots of hills! Beautiful bridges and gorges to... More

The Cornell School of Law is a fine institution. Very much an ivy league school and very well respected. A law education from here is a very good thing! Not extremely large and caring faculty.

The facility is world class, with a thorough, compassionate army of Veterinary students at ascending levels--and professors. VERY clean, despite the huge number of small animals brought to the College for cutting-edge diagnostics and treatment.

The school grounds are beautiful on a sunny spring day! There is nothing not to like about Cornell. A school with a great reputation for its academics and network.

We stopped by the Cornell Botanic Garden first and it was a nice place but it was a little early so we did not see many flowers. We took a walk on the trail along Beebe Lake and saw the Fall Creek Gorge. There were very peaceful along the trail and a little bit cool. After that we walked along... More
