Student experiences

"Great professors, amazing facilities, and an overall supportive environment."
"Summer at Cornell University was a life-changing experience for me. It was amazing in every sense of the word. I got to meet people from across the world, study with very distinguished faculty, live in an Ivy League setting, and have plenty of opportunities for fun. I would for sure do this again if I could."
