Campus Visit Notes for Cornell University


Visit Description:

Overall, I love Cornell. It's my dream college. Don't let what people tell you about the weather throw you off - unless you live at the center of the earth's core it won't be that difficult to adjust. The campus is gorgeous and the dorms are relatively good. THE FOOD IS AMAZING! It has a broad variety of majors and an even broader variety of students. Ithaca is a bustling town with lots to do and many places to eat (:

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

Don't go to the Hotels at Cornell - they're overpriced and not worth it. The hotels in Ithaca have pools and complimentary breakfast for half the price as Cornell Hotels.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

GREAT FOOD!
