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

I took a bus load of 7-9 grade girls & parents to Cornell's EYH program. The campus is huge & gorgeous. This program for young girls is run so smoothly by Cornell grad students; I look forward to it every year. While we were there, we had some Cornell ice cream at their ice cream shop----YUM! This would be a... More
