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 University is an excellent school to choose in order to continue your academic journey. It has a beautiful campus, amazing professors and can provide an excellent education. The location of the campus, New York, is also an amazing place to live.

    Cornell is a wonderful institution with a beautiful campus complete with rivers and waterfalls. The five years I spent there were academically challenging, socially rewarding, and an unforgettable experience. I would not trade my undergraduate career at Cornell for any other institution.

    Cornell is a work hard, play hard type of environment. The classes are rigorous and challenging, but there is also a club or activity for every person. As a world renowned research institution, there are opportunities here that you would not find elsewhere.

    Cornell epitomizes the work hard, play hard attitude the Ivy League is known for. It's exclusive, but not elitist, and academics are obviously the priority. Hundreds of student organizations exist, and Greek Life is prevalent but not overpowering.

    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 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.
