Campus Visit Notes for Cornell University


Visit Description:

I liked the campus, but i don't think it was my type of style of living, where i tend to enjoy places with lots of people and city.. ithaca had more of your hometown feel, don't get me wrong, thats not bad, in fact i think a lot of people would really enjoy it.. they do have the nation's 2nd best ice cream produced from Conell University's very own cows... lol, it was actually really really good. we did see a lot of people with it. :) the town itself seems very safe....
