Who Studies at Cornell ?

Students come to Cornell College from nearly every state and more than 20 nations. Their academic interests range from acting to molecular biology, from English to statistics. Outside of class, they choose organized activities as diverse as chess and belly dancing, tutoring and campus governance.

For all their differences, though, Cornell students share a common bond: they’re driven by a passion for learning and an adventuresome spirit. That is why they choose Cornell, where they can immerse themselves in one course—and one extraordinary experience—at a time.
