Cornell for a Hockey Game- so much fun. It is so fun to see school spirit in action. Great fun for a family, couples or just a night out with friends.

Cornell is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever been to. There are waterfalls everywhere, unique buildings, and one of the most beautiful libraries I have ever been to!

We went on the campus tour and the engineering tour. Overall, the presentations were good. The engineering one was better than the general one. Campus is beautiful. But it’s also big so it’s a lot of walking.

We went to this campus to visit our daughter. I was amazed how nice it was. And was especially impressed by the gorges in the middle of campus... Very neat.... All of the facilities appeared to be very well cared for.

We enjoyed a campus tour - but also some lesser known spots. Went to the top of the bell tower during chimes concert - met a chimes master and saw her play the chimes (so cool!). Also awesome views from the top of the tower!...More
