This university is enormous. It has also one of the most beautiful campuses in America…but I’ll let you judge based on the pictures.
It has been a nightmare to find my way around uni, but the upside is that I have made friends while asking for directions. I have also met people from different parts of the world during the international exchange orientation (some people from France, Austria, Switzerland, England, Mexico, the Netherlands and a good number of Australians).
Just to give you an idea of how big the campus is, I have to catch a bus to get some of my classes (which also gives you an idea of how lazy I am).
Cornell has two creeks running along the campus and they have some beautiful waterfalls. Some things to do around here include: jumping off the Sacket foot-bridge into the water (which is forbidden and I will never ever do it), enjoying a live chime concert at the McGraw tower (the repertoire includes Beach Boys, Queen, Disney songs and anything you can imagine), going to the fruit market in front of the Cayuga lake (you can actually get to the market by kayak) and eating Cornell made ice-cream (which includes a new student-created flavour every year).
Now a completely different thing I would like to share. Just before I came to Cornell I spent some time back home (Lima-Peru) and my dog brought nine puppies to the world…Here’s the video!
I will keep you updated with everything that is happening up here, feel free to leave some comments or questions!
