A unique academic experience

Learning at Cornell is an experience that will both inspire and challenge. And that's just the way founder Ezra Cornell planned it: Ezra's founding philosophy was "I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study." With eight undergraduate colleges and schools, over 20 libraries, nearly 80 majors, and more than 4,000 courses, Cornell embodies Ezra's dream.
