I love the one class at a time experience. I also love that I can take part in college athletics, participate in a social group/sorority, be a sports medicine assistant, and hold down a part-time job all while being a full-time student. You can have it all at Cornell!

I enjoy the small school environment. It provides a very warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone that is on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The one block at a time schedule takes a lot of time to get used to but once you get it down it is a great way to learn.
