This looks like the ivy league campus it is. And it has its own waterfall! Students are friendly and helpful.

Fabulous place. Proud to say I studied here. Beautiful location. Opportunities abound. Don't believe that the gorges of Ithaca are anything but eye catching.

In addition to the quality education provided here the location is very nice for this large campus. Beautiful buildings all nicely kept. Nice that the Statler Hotel is right within the campus in walking distance to many of the buildings.
