McGraw Tower

Cornellians may not know every word of the alma mater's six verses, but they certainly know the tune, thanks to the 21 bells in McGraw Tower. Student chimesmasters climb the 161 stairs to the top of the tower where they play three concerts daily. Here, Uris Library and McGraw Tower sit atop Libe Slope, with West Campus and Cayuga Lake in the distance.

Ho Plaza

Located at the crossroads of campus, Ho Plaza serves as Cornell's town square. On any day you'll find students emerging from the Cornell Store, walking past Willard Straight Hall, and strolling down Ho Plaza on their way to and from the center of campus.
