Cornell University

What a beautiful spring day I had for this visit. All trees and flowers were in bloom. The campus is a work of art.

The University is a campus surrounded by gorges and waterfalls.. Adjacent to the Museum is a bridge overlooking one of the many Ithaca waterfalls.

One must remember Cornell began as an agriculture school so you will find botanical gardens and arboretums as well as rows upon rows of greenhouses. Much agriculture research is conducted here. Get a map of the University at the Visitor Center in Ithaca, or Campus Store. Parking can be challenging but there are lots available.

All that said, let’s take in the campus buildings.

The Student Center – stop in to view the murals, fireplaces.

The Chapel – a must see. The stained glass, ceilings, mausoleums of the University founders were exquisite.

Stained glass tribute to 3 students who were slain during the 1964 Voter Registration Drive in Mississippi.


And don’t forget to stop at the Campus Store adjacent to the Chapel to pick up some Cornell memorabilia.

They have a great clearance section in the back of the Store.
