LEARN BY DOINGFreed from the constraints of the traditional class period, our professors go beyond lectures to create meaningful projects, lead off-campus adventures for a day or a whole block, and devise many other types of hands-on learning. You’ll also have the flexibility to pursue full-time internships, research, and other real-world experiences as part of your normal curriculum. And our pre-professional programs allow you to engage with professionals in the areas of health and medicine, law, literary arts, and economics, business, and public policy.
COMMON SCHEDULEAt Cornell College, you will share a common daily rhythm, bringing you closer to your peers and faculty as a community. With two hours for lunch and all classes out by 3 p.m., our schedule makes it easier for you to be involved in athletics, performing arts, and student organizations to explore your interests and passions beyond the classroom.
BLOCK BREAKSImagine leaving class at 3 p.m. on Wednesday with no deadlines or homework until the following Monday. At Cornell, students enjoy this luxury every single month. You can use your four-day block breaks to relax, catch up, enjoy campus life, or visit home. And they’re tailor made for road trips.
