    PARTY. This is a big party school. Work hard, party harder. BE SAFE. There are Cornell sponsor events almost every day, these often include free food.

    Collegetown and the Commons are pretty places to visit. Ithaca Mall is also nearby and has an awesome adoption center where you can pet the kittens. As a freshman, Cornell gives you an unlimited bus pass allowing you to visit all these places whenever you desire. There are also cool hangout spots on campus, like the arts quad and the botanical gardens. Fun is what you make of it!

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    There is so much nature around the campus that you can barely even see it by satellite. There are so many fun things to do I guess you'll just have to visit and see for yourself.

    Greek life exists without being the only option (I think Cornell is about 30% Greek), so you'll be totally fine whether or not you want to join. That being said, there are frat parties on the weekends, but plenty of people don't really go out if that's not your thing. There's also the Cornell Cinema, and the Johnson Museum on campus has a lot of events. There's an observatory only a few minutes walk from North Campus (where the freshman dorms are), there are usually events around holidays with performances from student groups, and there are plenty of clubs to join.

    There is always something fun going on around campus! Cornell is unique in that it is located around some fantastic hiking trails that lead you past gorges, waterfalls, and other gorgeous places that nature has to offer. There are also many clubs on campus for any interest, ranging from Dance Dance Revolution Club to the Cornell Astronomical Society. Finally, stay up to date on events happening in Ithaca Commons, because a short bus ride can take you to interact with local Ithaca community members at events like Apple Fest or Porch Fest!

    There isn't a lot. There are a couple clubs and bars but they are not up to par. The movie theatre and mall are nearby, but the mall has about 7 stores. The commons/downtown area is really nice though and has dozens of mom and pop restaurants and family-run shops which are really fun.
