Cornell College - Comments and Student Experiences|
The dorms suck: When I arrived, the windows were broken and there were no screens. The paint is peeling off the walls, and everyone says it feels like a prison. The food is terrible and has made me physically ill/throw up multiple times, and I am not alone. Cornell also tries to sell themselves as having a faculty that gets involved with the students, but it often feels that we are all alone here: It's literally like kindergarten without the adults. We go to class a few hours a day, and then are all alone again. The only reason I haven't left this nauseating place is because I've made a few really good friends here.
As for the social life, the college smothers it. They treat students like 5 year old children. the resident life staff is more interested in punishment and fines than safety. the surrounding town is no better. the police force is one of the best funded in the state (despite the town having a population of 1,500) because they arrest a student for (literally) anything illegal that is done. I friend of mine was arrested under paraphernalia charges because he had a lighter and was speeding (he smokes cigarettes).
Oh, and the food is terrible. If you attend this college, you will spend at least 500-1000 dollars extra just to eat off campus because of the atrocities that they attempt to feed you.Given the chance, i would leave this institution in a flash. However, they have managed to attract people that i like and until they all leave, i will stay here.
