WHAT THEIR STUDENT’S ARE SAYING

“Beautiful campus, close-knit community, lots of opportunity for research in sciences, alumni network”

“Cornell is a giant place but a place for everybody.”

“Beautiful campus, superior education, very smart colleagues and professors, a lot of great research on campus.”

Cornell is "more than a bunch of books and exams—it's an experience that challenges students to break free from their comfort zones." Seven different undergraduate colleges "really make it feel small and specialized," with "top-notch faculty." The university is "a place where any person can find instruction in any study (and it won't feel like work)," as it allows its students to explore any kind of interest they may have (ranging from Punk Rock as a literary genre to particle physics) while "also offering an incredible amount of depth within each department." There are endless opportunities to "pursue other topics, enhance your knowledge of things that you're already interested in, and try completely random things that you'd never even heard of before." Professors are "experts in their field, almost always conducting their own research, and are enthusiastic about passing their knowledge on to their students."  "Cornell keeps the faculty, research, and access to the most recent information so up-to-date that this campus is as connected as any place in the world." Between balancing those amazing resources and the community feel, the Cornell bigwigs get a lot of applause, as they have "proven time and time again that they care, both on an individual and system-wide level." Great internships, a strong alumni network, and "boundless opportunities after graduation" round out the "definition of amazing" that is Cornell University.

ONLINE RECRUITING STANDARDS – NONE LISTED

Cornell Track and Field purposefully does not set recruiting standards. Why? They would rather sift through a large volume of prospective student-athletes expressing interest in their program and school and work through them prospect by prospect just in case there are “diamonds in the rough” out there. Very cool.
