Education at the speed of life

At Cornell, you’ll earn your education at the speed of life. You’ll immerse yourself in your studies, discover what excites you, connect with community, and learn how to get things done.

You will find community and peers who will become life-long friends. When you graduate, you will take the knowledge you need to succeed on your own. Our One Course At A Time curriculum changes lives, and at the end of four years you'll realize that you’re ready for whatever comes next.

Our students bring diverse perspectives, open-minded discussion, and imaginative community activities to our Hilltop community. And they come from 45 states and 18 countries, bringing the world to Cornell College.

Value for a Lifetime

By choosing a liberal arts education, you will learn how to think critically, communicate clearly, and respond to situations with confidence.

Derek Johnson '04

Executive Director of Global Zero

"This is a global campaign and it often runs at break-neck pace. The kind of intellectual agility that comes with a liberal arts background--and with a Cornell experience in particular--is key."
