This institution has great professors but staff andQuite BrightBiology
This institution has great professors but staff and care for students needs much improvement.
I was in a car accident late 2016 and so I was disenrolled to avoid unnecessary tuition fees during the 2 months I was in the hospital and when I returned to the college hoping to reinstate my enrollment I was told I would not be able to until my balance was covered in full. I begged the school to tap into school funds and help me and my request was denied, instead the school raised money to renovate the football field.

I also was told that since I was not a student I was unable to reside in my old dorm room, despite the fact that all of my clothes and belongings were being held in there.

Having no place to go I had to stay in friends dorms until the earliest flight home a week and a half later. I did not have money and was not given a meal pass so I would have to settle for snacks throughout the day to get by.

After about 5 days of staying with friends I explained my situation with a resident Assistant (student friend of mine) and they allowed me to stay in my room.

I had a broken back, hip, pelvis, and hand from the accident along with nerve damage in my left leg and two dislocated shoulder cuffs.

I contacted a church and they held my items for me for a year because I had no way of getting them home. Mice got into two boxes and I lived off of a duffel bag full of clothes because the school offered no assistance to me in my time of need. I reached out at least two times after this and was refused aid yet I kept receiving tuition statements in the mail.

Send your children somewhere that is willing to care for them
����� For the professor's who care� For an institution who's main concern is money

Pretend to give away grants and then overQuite BrightUndecided
Pretend to give away grants and then over charge on financial aid. The block system is a horrible excuse for professors to be half assed about teaching. Learned absolutely nothing so far! This place is like a ridiculously expensive middle school! They lie to interested students about programs and classes offered to get you to enroll. The sports teams are very openly rascist, and have threatened other students with violence. The college leaders do nothing about it. If you don't beleive me look up the local news for 2016. Its in plain site. Professors miss at least a quarter of each class consistantly since I started here and these classes are already only 17 days only! If you want to be overcharged for a worthless "education" then choose Cornell.

If you're a PERSON OF COLOR, esp blackOther
If you're a PERSON OF COLOR, esp black & latinx, I STRONGLY advise that you do not come here. Just exit out the Cornell College webpage and look for another college to go to. This school DOES NOT CARE about the RACISM & DISCRIMINATION that people of color face on a everyday basis at the school no matter how much they say they do. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. From people hanging nooses over the beds of black students to writing the n word on doors to encouraging the "Build a Wall" garbage from DT to not feeling safe while walking the campus at night for fear that someone would attack you because of your skin color. Not the ideal college to go to if you can't at least feel safe. If you want to see for yourself, follow the below link:
