This was my first visit to Cornell, and my dogs were barking after a day of walking around campus. It's huge and eclectic. Some buildings are old and austere, others modern and not as attractive (to me anyway). To be honest, I found it difficult...More

I had never been to Ithaca but had a chance to visit when we were producing a wedding on campus. I must say it is stunning and worth seeing. But I would make sure it is in the Summer.

The campus is large! The buildings are impressive. It is actually on a hill and you have a good view of both downtown and the lake. Be excised when visit it. Remember to watch the sunset in front of Uris Library.

I love Cornell as my son studies there and with each trip (my 3rd) I love it more. Surely an awesome campus (except when it is soo cold I think)

Proud to be here and experience the world class education .The campus has a lot to see . Don't forget to get a shirt and cap from the Cornell store and the gorge trail is a must for a morning jog person.
