Coeducational from the beginning, Cornell College is a liberal arts institution founded in 1853. Situated in Mount Vernon, Iowa, the private school has been deemed “more selective.” Cornell College utilizes a block schedule that allows students to focus on “One Course At A Time” which means students take one class for 18 days. Undergraduates favor economics, psychology, and kinesiology and exercise science majors.
Cornell is a small community with excellent academic opportunities. They offer fairly good financial aid and are willing to accommodate to suit a student's needs. If you are looking for an exciting social scene however, Cornell is not the school for you.

Cornell is great! Everyone here is very friendly, upperclassmen are happy to help you. Plus all the staff are eager to assist you in anyway they can.
