What’s the most frustrating thing about your school?The freshman dorms are a great distance from the actual classes. So, if you plan on taking the bus make sure you are early, or individuals need to plan ahead if they choose to walk.If you could change something about your school, what would you change?I wish the school was more racially diverse.

What do you consider the best thing about your school? Why?The best thing about Cornell is the ability to learn just about ANYTHING from amazing professors. There will always be a class, a friend, or a professor with your interests if you look hard enough. I will always appreciate and feel incredibly fortunate to have studied with the best of the best.What’s the most frustrating thing about your school?Honestly, the most frustrating part of Cornell is the amount of Sexual Assault. There are MANY incidents of rape unreported that occur through fraternities. Just be careful. and if anything does happen, report it to the Police.
