There are so many diverse classes that are just waiting to be taken including: PLPA 2010 Magical Mushrooms, Mischievous Molds, HADM 4430 Introduction to Wines (must be 21 or older to take), and HD 3620 Human Bonding (for those trying to figure out the opposite sex). There are a lot of opportunities to learn whatever you want, you just have to find the right people.

    Cornell seems to be a very socially together school. I went to a football game there and it was very clear that the entire school wanted to support their team! It made me really want to be a part of that kind of college life.

    Cornell University provides numerous opportunities for students to pursue their dreams here. During my time here as a student, I have found it very easy to develop my old interests and pick up new interests. With the education I receive from Cornell, I have no doubt that I will accomplish all of my goals.

    A plethora of majors are available to students which allow them to explore a variety of disciplines. Amazing faculty and research opportunities are available. Housing and dining is also one of the best in the US!

    Cornell University is a hidden treasure. It is absolutely beautiful during the fall and winter, which can be comforting during finals week, and it has a wide array of opportunity. The faculty are at the top of their field, the programs are tier one, and a degree from an Ivy League Institution certainly doesn't hurt either.

    Enough academic rigor to ensure a successful future. Enough social events to provide the classic college experience. A great way to spend four years.

    With a beautiful campus, variety of course offerings, and great student body, no one can go wrong with Cornell. Ezra's founding line holds true to this day with the seven colleges offering a tremendous breadth of majors and minors, each one led by a wonderful set of professors and staff. You can't go wrong with the Big Red.

    Cornell University is an institution where you learn so much. Not only academically--but, how to manage time and what kind of person you are. At Cornell, I have really grown into a responsible and educated person.

    The campus is absolutely beautiful and breath-taking in the fall. The tutoring and resources available for extra help are immensely helpful and readily available at most times of the day. Cornell also tries very hard to keep its students happy and very entertained while on campus.

    While the workload can be intimidating, the resources you will be exposed to and the experiences you'll have will make it all worth it. The different colleges within the university give you the sense that you are part of a small, tight-knit community, yet you get to explore a large, beautiful campus. I would highly recommend it.
