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.

Great mix of old and new buildings. Wonderful views of the lake. There are amazing little trails with access to water falls.

The campus is enourmous with three main campuses: Ithaca, NY, Cornell Tech, NYC, and Weill Cornell Medical College. Weill Cornell Medical College covering several city blocks near the Cornell Tech Campus. There is even a Cornell Mieial School site in Qatar.

Cornell's reputation and academics are without doubt. However, the campus itself is not a tourist attraction. Apart from a couple eye-catching architecture like the Law School or the Statler, the school is just a collection of administrative and educational buildings like any other colleges. Parking...More

Cornell is a beautiful place. It's an ivy league college that looks and feels like a big state school. The best of both worlds. There are beautiful plantings, nice people, and fun things in the area. It's a long drive from everywhere but worth it

With such a large and diverse campus, be sure to check out the exhibits in the library and elsewhere on campus. You won't be disappointed. This is a top-notch university.
