I say anything else: Cornell College is not in Ithaca,
NY. It is in Iowa. Cornell College was around before
Cornell University, but it is not THE Cornell.
is not for everyone. One-Course-at-a-Time can be intense, but it
also gives you an opportunity to learn a lot. If
you love learning, you will probably love OCAAT.
sucks. But contrary to other reviews the social scene does
not. This is not a party school, but who said
that means we don't have fun? The school really tries
hard to give us things to do. There are a
lot of clubs, too. Cedar Rapids is a lot of
fun and only 30 minutes away. I think Mt. Vernon
is pretty charming on its own, though.
The faculty are
ultra-attentive. They will pay so much attention to you. (Before
I forget, the campus is pretty by midwestern standards. Lots
of tall grass and brick.)
Remember that there are less
than 1100 students. The student body is tiny! Everybody knows
everybody. It's sort of like high school 2.0 in that
way, except not as clique-y. There are cliques though -
don't be fooled by the promotional stuff.
Overall, Cornell is
a place for people who want to learn a lot
and have some good clean fun with good-hearted people. The
people can be close-minded, but they do so without realizing
it. 8.7 out of 10.
