Gives the student's humorous views of life at CU and in Ithaca. Mainly useless info but it got us excited. We were not taken into any buildings although several in the group asked. [View Full Report]

Typical walking tour. There are two types offered, take both- one is about the university and the other is about student life. [View Full Report]

By far the best student tour guide we've had. Christine was informative, personable, relatable and funny. Dorm rooms would've been a plus, but w/ a campus this size, I doubt it's possi [View Full Report]

Excellent tourguide - Taylor. She was very knowledgeable and spoke loudly and clearly amid the noise of summer construction season at Cornell. [View Full Report]

My tour guide was wonderful. He shared all sorts of wonderful stories about Cornell in general and his personal experiences. There was also an informal Q&A session when we took a break. [View Full Report]

Engineering tour, freshmen dorms and the generic campus tour. The general tour includes a sit-down Q&A so parents can catch their breath as it is a big campus (and they don't even really cove [View Full Report]

My campus tour guide was extremely charismatic, and certainly made the tour for me. I remember him making pop culture references and humorous asides that showed us what Cornell was really like. [View Full Report]

The campus tour was very very nice, but be prepared to walk, and if in the summer, use sunscreen! We did not enter any buildings, but got a basic feel of campus. [View Full Report]

Very informative. Student tour guide was extremely enthusiastic, and told us a lot about his own experience as a Cornell student. Took us throughout the academic areas of campus only. [View Full Report]

Cornell is as gorgeous as everyone says. People claim it's freezing, but being from NY, the acclamation isn't too drastic. The views are breathtaking although the large campus can be overwhe [View Full Report]

I missed the beginning of the tour. The guide had popped the collar on her polo, and was preppy-bubbly in personality. She dealt well with an unexpected rainstorm in the middle of the tour, though. [View Full Report]

Led by a really cool tour guide who reminded me a little of myself...not "preppy" "nerdy" "fratty" "hippie" or any other sort of "label"...just a norm [View Full Report]

I had a great campus tour. I was lucky enough to have a one on one tour with a very exciting student. I was taken to all the principal buildings and to the key buildings of my prospective college. [View Full Report]

Unfortunately, the tour we had allotted time for and the only information session of the day, were at the same time. That's poor planning on Cornell's part. [View Full Report]
