About Cornell University

Cornell University is a school located in Ithaca, NY, US with a total of 14044 courses available to enroll in.

Cornell University is a private research university in Ithaca, New York and also a prestigious Ivy League school. Founded by Ezra Cornell and Andrew Dixon White in 1865, Cornell was the only one of the eight Ivy League schools to be founded after the American Revolution. Cornell University preaches coeducation, meaning anyone regardless of faith and race can be enrolled. Since its inception, its founders have been looking to transform Cornell into a new type of university, with content ranging from literary masterpieces to natural science, from theoretical research to practical applications, with an all-encompassing curriculum. This idea eventually became Cornell's motto: 'I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study.' Cornell University has seven undergraduate colleges and seven graduate schools, each of which has its own academic program.
