Most Helpful Review for Cornell College

Block plan enables me to really focus, both to learn and to love a topic. The only downside is that some details do get skipped occasionally due to time constraints. But the retention of material learned plus the attention you can give to the details of your own work more than makes up for this. Additionally this school has succeeded in teaching the procrastination queen (me) how to utilize time management, which will help in real life more than most gen ed classes ever will.

    Cornell is located in a small town, living here will mean creating your own fun or searching for activities through clubs, athletics, or greek life. People here are different in different senses of the word; we have our share of the different colors of the rainbow. The teachers are really helpful and invested, just like the students are helpful and friendly.

    Beautiful little school in little Mount Vernon, Iowa. Totally different from any other school, with its One Course at a Time system for classes. Absolutely amazing people, and an amazing educational experience.

    Narrow-minded in the sense of accepting other people and other cultures. Horrible food service and customer service. Systematic lack of care in general for students; only motive is to make money does so by raising prices, lowering benefits and squandering funds paid for tuition

    I really enjoy my time in class and the small campus has given me a chance to make a network of friends quickly. The courses are incredibly rigorous and intellectually stimulating, and most of my professors have been reasonable human beings who I can talk to if need be.

    Cornell is a small college that cares about their students. It is a close knit community where everyone knows everyone. I am getting a good education and will be prepared when I graduate.

    Cornell is a very quirky campus full of very interesting people. Since it is relatively small, there are always lots of opportunities available and people who are willing to help you achieve your goals. I have never had any professor who hasn't been engaged with the students.

    Cornell College is a fantastic, small, friendly community. The One Course At A Time model truly allows me to focus my intellectual capacities on my subject in a unique manner. At Cornell, the professors emanate a majestic aura of knowledge, wisdom, love, and passion.
