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.

    People at Cornell are some of the most passionate, intelligent, interesting people I've ever met. The environment is far more collaborative and engaging than it is competitive or negatively stressful, and the academics are well-balanced with extracurricular and social opportunities. There are a few of the preppy kids, but most are very relaxed and friendly, far from the cliques and drama of high school.

    Cornell University has a large campus that feels small and intimate. The resources provided to students are unparalleled, as there are research opportunities and classes that allow students to meet professors who are leaders in their fields of work. I consider myself lucky to call this place home, and I have met and been inspired by people from all over the world who are passionate and hardworking.

    Cornell University has an immensely large campus that involves a lot of uphill walking. Despite the academic challenges and grade deflation, most students seem to be quite happy with the school. The vast majority of the student body is very accommodating and socially liberal.

    Students here work hard and play hard. The atmosphere is extremely competitive, and also very liberal. It's the largest Ivy, so you get the rigor of a satisfyingly challenging education, but also the perks of a larger campus with all its amazing diversity and opportunities.

    If you are from a big city and you are looking for a new environment where your perspective can grow, Cornell is the place for you. Its located in central Ithaca which ... is pretty isolated, but thats what makes Cornell so damn special. Its own self is it's own city. Wouldn't have imagined going anywhere else. The campus is so beautiful even in the winter with all the snow. And the people you meet here are so bright and friendly.

    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.
