Campus Visit Notes for Cornell University


Visit Description:

We chose Cornell over Yale for various reason. Appearance and upkeep of campus. Friendliness of students and staff. Plus there were no gang members standing right off the campus at Cornell as there was at Yale as well as the resident homeless person hanging out outside the Yale Student Store. I would expect more from and Ivy League school.

Cornell was amazing in every way.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

We stayed at a hotel right off campus and it was comfortable - one of these days I'm going to stay at the Statler.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

Amazing food. All the campus diners are great - we went to a Korean BBQ place in town. It was very good.
