This is the only place we visited in Ithaca. We paid $6 for 4hr visitors parking. Then we’ve walked on campus for almost 4hrs and still not be able to see all the campus. It’s a beautiful school.

Visited it during summer time, worth of revisiting in Fall, Winter and Spring. Beautiful campus and so much to explore around the town.

This is a really picturesque campus in a pretty small town. It’s worth your time if you’re in Ithaca to at least drive through the campus.

Beautiful buildings, located on the top of a hill - with view overlooking town and "Cayuga's Waters" as the Cornell song goes. The library, chapel, and other places are open to enjoy.

The College of Veterinary Medicine of Cornell University is big, modern and impressive. I was impressed by the rich history of this institution, as well as the technical equipment of classes and laboratories.
