Cornell College Reviews
I come from an area in Michigan that fits the stereotypical upper-middle class of predominantly white outlook. Everybody here wears designer outfits and drives nice cars and quite frankly are pretentious snobs. As soon as I arrived at Cornell for my visit during my senior year of high school, I immediately knew that I didn't have to pretend to be that kind of person anymore. I could be exactly who I wanted to be and everyone has been fantastic for me so far. Not to mention the One Course At A Time is amazing. Admittedly, difficult to adjust to but once I got the hang of it I never want to switch back to a traditional schedule. Being an athlete out there as well provides an even better and more in-depth experience. I get to see and interact with some parts of the school that those who aren't athletes aren't able to. I can't wait to go back!
From my very first block at Cornell, every class pushed my mind and expanded my reality by forcing me to step outside of my own vision of the world. I have spent three years discovering not just how beliefs arise within individuals and cultures, but why they are created and how that relates to the society at large. By encouraging students to look beyond their own world, Cornell provides us with a safe place to experience the unknown, welcome that knowledge into our lives and then share it with those around us. Cornell has always understood my unconventional background and encouraged my drive to help others. My professors never doubted my desire to apply my studies to outside fields, and supported my goal of working abroad with HIV/AIDS projects.
Sexual Assault accusations are rampant around campus. Whether they're true or not, it's scary because if it is true this famous is very dangerous, This Insitutions does not do enough to fight against and prevent sexual assault. The Health Center is very accessible, however the staff seems to not be qualified to actively diagnose a serious problem. If you have the common cold they can easily tell and they will give you OTC medication. From personal experience, they do not look close enough and will most of the time out you off and over exaggerating. I was diagnosed with a serious condition, but when I visited the health center the nurse wrote it off like it was nothing and would not write a referral to a doctor. They're not experienced enough to adequately make me feel safe with my health concerns.
