Cornell is a privately endowed research university and a partner of the State University of New York. As the federal land-grant institution in New York State, they have a responsibility—unique within the Ivy League—to make contributions in all fields of knowledge in a manner that prioritizes public engagement to help improve the quality of life in their state, the nation, the world. Cornell University will be widely recognized as a top-ten research university in the world, and a model university for the interweaving of liberal education and fundamental knowledge with practical education and impact on societal and world problems. At Cornell, they celebrate the great diversity and globalism of their university, its faculty, and students and they are excited that you are considering Cornell for your education. They invite you to explore what it is like learning at Cornell and living on their historic, beautiful campus in Ithaca, New York. Their applicants are an eclectic group, including international students who have moved among several countries or schools, U.S. citizens who have lived most of their lives abroad, or non-U.S. citizens completing school in the U.S. They read applications based on where you currently attend school, rather than by your citizenship status. Your application will be read with others from the school you attend and those from the same state (U.S.) or country. Their main campus: 2,300 acres in the heart of New York State's Finger Lakes region. And only steps away from the shops, restaurants, nightlife, and activities of Ithaca. There's no end to the things you can do, accomplish, and create here.
