Student Life


Overview

"I don't think I have ever been anywhere in the United States that had so many people with so many different interests."

Janet Reno '60, Attorney General of the United States, 1993-2000

You might think the Cornell campus is so big that it should have its own zip code. It is and it does. But one of the first things you'll notice when you arrive is that the many options, amenities, and recreational and learning opportunities offered here make the campus feel smaller.

Whether you're seeking study skills, participation in a favorite sport or activity, a delicious meal, outings to explore the region's spectacular natural beauty, help with family or personal issues, opportunities for social interaction, a safe and comfortable place to live, or information about your education and career options, you'll be in good hands during your years at Cornell. And you'll have fun, too.

Life at Cornell is relatively quiet, but never boring. Who has time to be bored?
