I am a Freshman at Cornell's School of Industrial and Labor Relations and I could not be happier anywhere else. I came to Cornell very apprehensive of the social scene because it was the only school I applied to that was not in a city and I thought the social life would be terrible. Even now, I am so surprised that such a group of intelligent people can be so social. There are ALWAYS things going on here and you will never be bored, I promise. Such a focus on campus is a really neat "typical" college experience. You have your whole life to live in a city and go clubbing, so enjoy laying out in the arts quad or swimming in the gorges. The mentality "study hard, party hard" truly describes life at Cornell and the diversity of people here is amazing, especially academic. What other school can you have people who want to run a hotel, grow wine, work for a union or become an engineer? Another amazing thing about Cornell is that it has the resources of a large university but your individual school gives you alot of personal attention. One thing about Cornell, which I like the most about it is that it is very pre-proffesional. VERY pre-proffesional, with perhaps the exeption of Arts and Sceince. This focus creates a student body that is very career minded and focused. Cornell is not the type of place where you will lay out and talk about the meaning of life and philosophy. You will have intrsting discussions but the student body is much more "professional" and wants to learn usefull skills and not waste their time on a glorified liberal arts program. Also, if you want to go move to New York City after graduation, COME HERE. There are an insane amount of alumni there and internships. Of last years graduating class something like 35% of grads moved there. So if you want to come to a school with a vibrant campus focused social scene, a professionally focused student body and great resources come here. If not, well, there's always Harvard…
