As an Ivy League school, a research institution, and one of three private land-grant universities in the US, Cornell University admissions are highly competitive. Since its founding in 1865, Cornell has been a co-educational, nonsectarian university, but has expanded to include two satellite medical campuses, one in New York City and the other in Education City, Qatar.
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 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.
