The westernmost of the Ivies, Cornell University provides its students with a prestigious education, paired with “an unwavering commitment to leave a positive impact on the world.” The school is “more than a bunch of books and exams—it’s an experience that challenges students to break free from their comfort zones.” Seven different undergraduate colleges (including one of the premier Hotel Administration schools in the nation) “really make it feel small and specialized,” and “top notch faculty.”
“[Since] being in Ithaca, you’re kind of in the middle of nowhere,” there are plenty of reasons to focus on your studies, but “Cornell as an administration keeps the faculty, research, and access to the most recent information so up-todate that this campus is as connected as any place in the world.” Between balancing those amazing resources and the community feel, the Cornell bigwigs get a lot of applause, as they have “proven time and time again that they care, both on an individual and system-wide level.” Great internships, a strong alumni network, and “boundless opportunities after graduation” round out the “definition of amazing” that is Cornell University. “I was intimidated to go here, but now I will say that I cannot imagine going anywhere else,” says a junior.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
