I visited in the summer, so there weren't many students around, but when my mother and I visited the student center and libraries, the students were very friendly. [View Full Report]

Well the students I talked to were extremely courteous, and even the ones simply walking around campus were very friendly and waved to us during the campus tour. [View Full Report]

People were mostly friendly. Maybe a bit aloof, but that's somewhat of a cultural norm in the northeast. [View Full Report]

My student host was very helpful and offered many advice and answered my questions well. He showed me around campus and introduced me to some of his friends, who were as helpful and friendly. [View Full Report]

I went to the Purcell dining hall, and all of my host's friends came over and spoke to me. There didn't seem to be any tension on campus and the students were very approachable. [View Full Report]

The tour guide I had (Ilana) was a native, and was very helpful. I felt comfortable asking her about her own personal experiences. All of the other guides seemed very nice. [View Full Report]

I didn't really talk to any of the students. The tour guide was friendly but clearly not like me or my friends. Of course, Cornell is so big and diverse that she's hardly representative. [View Full Report]

By far the nicest students and the student body with which I felt most comfortable so far. Besides my tour guide, I had ice cream with a couple of really interesting and friendly students. [View Full Report]

Most down to earth students I have seen in comparison to the other Ivys and other top ranked schools. It was not rare for students to talk to us or go the extra mile in order lend a hand. [View Full Report]

Students seem generally friendly, although there isn't a sense of friendliness and openness that you find at smaller colleges and universities. [View Full Report]

Our tour guide was great, but after the tour we met many students because we got so lost! Everyone was friendly and helpful too. One of the students even walked us to find food and ended up eating with us and telling us about his experiences at Cornell. [View Full Report]
