  • Ithaca is beautiful and Cornell's architecture is marvellous! The mesmerizing waterfalls, the pretty Fall and the my favourite- snow in and around campus are main attractions. The campus is clean, well connected by TCAT buses and almost every part is wheelchair accessible and has braille. It's an amazing place to be in!
  • Beautiful campus!! The views are even greater if you go by the towers🏛🏞🏔🗽
