University looks run down. A building that looks ready to tear down, right next to something ultra-modern. An unusual mix I felt. More money needs to be spent on campus, less on sports. [View Full Report]

Apart from a handful of buildings, Cornell had an industrial/city feel to it. Even accounting for summertime construction it seemed exceptionally noisy & busy. [View Full Report]

Lots of construction and LOTS of hills. The landscaping was quite nice and the waterfalls were really interesting. [View Full Report]

The campus is flat-out beautiful from the surrounding natural beauty to the wonderful architecture. I felt like I was never more than a few feet from a waterfall :) [View Full Report]

The old buildings certainly made the campus look beautiful. The view over the slope was certainly breathtaking and the way the campus looked like a mini town was really cool in my opinion. [View Full Report]

I actually found RPI more attractive, while I expected the reverse to be true. Nevertheless, the gorges and overall surroundings make up for some structural eyesores. [View Full Report]

Construction going on. Bridges look awful to prevent suicides but the campus is really beautiful, cayuga lake, bell tower and cornell plantations. [View Full Report]

Campus is gorgeous. Most of the buildings are built out of red bricks and there are so many trees around campus. It's clean, well organized, and beautiful. [View Full Report]

I actually took two visits a year apart from each other, and there was heavy construction both times. Plus, there's a decent amount of noisy automobile traffic - it's certainly not Harvard Y [View Full Report]

Cornell's campus is gorgeous, true to the photographs (and it's not even fall). Very much sprawling and green. [View Full Report]

beautiful campus, even in early spring when everything is brown and dead and cold. I can just imagine how it would look later on in the year. Huge too, no wonder it has its own zip code. [View Full Report]

The amazing architecture of Cornell's building and it's natural beauty make Cornell one of nicest campuses I have seen. There is only one ugly building, Uris Hall...lol. [View Full Report]

The campus is pretty, particularly areas away from the center (such as Cornell Plantations), but in the winter, is a frozen ball of ice. [View Full Report]

Cornell was absolutely beautiful, much more so than I expected. The buildings are attractive and well-kept, even though the gray skies were a little depressing. The gorges are breahtaking. [View Full Report]
