Cornell, a member of the Ivy League, is also the land-grant university for New York State. It unites the rigorous intellectual tradition of the Ivy League and the democratic spirit of the other great state schools, and although Cornell is unquestionably one of the nation's most comprehensive research universities, teaching still comes first. Faculty members who teach graduate courses also teach undergraduate courses - even the Nobel laureates and the Pulitzer Prize winners. Your professors will be involved in research projects and other scholarly investigations at the forefront of their fields, and in many cases you'll have opportunities to join them in their discoveries. The University is located in Ithaca, NY (population 30,000), 60 miles south of Syracuse. Approximately 14,000 of Cornell's 21,000 students (67%) are enrolled as undergraduates. Freshman and transfer applicants may apply to any of the seven undergraduate colleges at Cornell.
