Cornell University
University
(/kɔːrˈnɛl/ kor-NEL) is a private and statutory Ivy League
Ivy League
research university located in Ithaca, New York. Founded in 1865 by Ezra Cornell
Ezra Cornell
and Andrew Dickson White,[7] the university was intended to teach and make contributions in all fields of knowledge—from the classics to the sciences, and from the theoretical to the applied. These ideals, unconventional for the time, are captured in Cornell's motto, a popular 1865 Ezra Cornell quotation: "I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study."[1] The university is broadly organized into seven undergraduate colleges and seven graduate divisions at its main Ithaca campus, with each college and division defining its own admission standards and academic programs in near autonomy. The university also administers two satellite medical campuses, one in New York City
City
and one in Education City, Qatar, and Cornell Tech, a graduate program that incorporates technology, business, and creative thinking. The program moved from Google's Chelsea Building in New York City
City
to its permanent campus on Roosevelt Island
Roosevelt Island
in September 2017. Cornell is one of three private land grant universities in the United States and the only one in New York.[note 1] Of its seven undergraduate colleges, three are state-supported statutory or contract colleges through the State University of New York
State University of New York
(SUNY) system, including its agricultural and human ecology colleges as well as its industrial labor relations school. Of Cornell's graduate schools, only the veterinary college is state-supported. As a land grant college, Cornell operates a cooperative extension outreach program in every county of New York and receives annual funding from the State of New York for certain educational missions.[8] The Cornell University
University
Ithaca Campus comprises 745 acres, but is much larger when the Cornell Botanic Gardens
Cornell Botanic Gardens
(more than 4,300 acres) and the numerous university-owned lands in New York City
City
are considered.[9] As of 2017, 56 Nobel laureates, 4 Turing Award
Turing Award
winners and 1 Fields Medalist have been affiliated with Cornell University. Since its founding, Cornell has been a co-educational, non-sectarian institution where admission has not been restricted by religion or race. Cornell counts more than 245,000 living alumni, and its former and present faculty and alumni include 34 Marshall Scholars, 30 Rhodes Scholars, 29 Truman Scholars, 7 Gates Scholars, and 14 living billionaires.[10][11][12] The student body consists of more than 14,000 undergraduate and 7,000 graduate students from all 50 American states and more than 120 countries.[13][14]

History[edit] Main article: History of Cornell University Cornell University
University
was founded on April 27, 1865; the New York State (NYS) Senate authorized the university as the state's land grant institution. Senator Ezra Cornell
Ezra Cornell
offered his farm in Ithaca, New York, as a site and $500,000 of his personal fortune as an initial endowment. Fellow senator and experienced educator Andrew Dickson White agreed to be the first president. During the next three years, White oversaw the construction of the first two buildings and traveled to attract students and faculty.[15] The university was inaugurated on October 7, 1868, and 412 men were enrolled the next day.[16]

Cornell developed as a technologically innovative institution, applying its research to its own campus and to outreach efforts. For example, in 1883 it was one of the first university campuses to use electricity from a water-powered dynamo to light the grounds.[17] Since 1894, Cornell has included colleges that are state funded and fulfill statutory requirements;[18] it has also administered research and extension activities that have been jointly funded by state and federal matching programs.[19] Cornell has had active alumni since its earliest classes. It was one of the first universities to include alumni-elected representatives on its Board of Trustees.[note 2] Cornell was also among the Ivies that had heightened student activism during the 1960s related to cultural issues, civil rights, and opposition to the Vietnam War; with protests and occupations resulting in the resignation of Cornell's president and the restructuring of university governance.[20] Today the university has more than 4,000 courses.[21] Since 2000, Cornell has been expanding its international programs. In 2004, the university opened the Weill Cornell Medical College
Weill Cornell Medical College
in Qatar.[22] It has partnerships with institutions in India, Singapore, and the People's Republic of China.[23][24][25] Former president Jeffrey S. Lehman described the university, with its high international profile, a "transnational university".[26] On March 9, 2004, Cornell and Stanford University
Stanford University
laid the cornerstone for a new 'Bridging the Rift Center' to be built and jointly operated for education on the Israel– Jordan

border.[27] Campuses[edit]

Ithaca campus[edit] Main articles: Cornell Central Campus, Cornell North Campus, and Cornell West Campus Cornell's main campus is on East Hill in Ithaca, New York, overlooking the city and Cayuga Lake. Since the university was founded, it has expanded to about 2,300 acres (9.3 km2), encompassing both the hill and much of the surrounding areas.[28] Central Campus has laboratories, administrative buildings, and almost all of the campus' academic buildings, athletic facilities, auditoriums, and museums. Collegetown contains two upper-class residence halls[29][30] and the Schwartz Performing Arts Center amid a mixed-use neighborhood of apartments, eateries, and businesses.[31] The main campus is marked by an irregular layout and eclectic architectural styles, including ornate Collegiate Gothic, Victorian, and Neoclassical buildings, and the more spare international and modernist structures. The more ornate buildings generally predate World War II. The student population doubled from 7,000 in 1950 to 15,000 by 1970, at a time when architectural styles favored modernism.[32] While some buildings are neatly arranged into quadrangles, others are packed densely and haphazardly. These eccentricities arose from the university's numerous, ever-changing master plans for the campus. For example, in one of the earliest plans, Frederick Law Olmsted, the designer of Central Park, proposed a "grand terrace" overlooking Cayuga Lake.[33] Several of the university buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Andrew Dickson White
Andrew Dickson White
House, Bailey Hall, Caldwell Hall, Comstock Hall, Morrill Hall (Cornell University), and Deke House. At least three other historic buildings—the original Roberts Hall, East Robert Hall and Stone Hall—have also been listed on the NRHP. The university demolished them in the 1980s to make way for other development.[34] In September 2011, Travel+Leisure
Travel+Leisure
listed the Ithaca Campus as among the most beautiful in the United States.[35] Located among the rolling valleys of the Finger Lakes
Finger Lakes
region, the campus on a hill provides views of the surrounding area, including 38 miles (61.4 km) long Cayuga Lake. Two gorges, Fall Creek Gorge
Gorge
and Cascadilla Gorge, bound Central Campus and are used as popular swimming holes during the warmer months (although the university and city code discourage their use).[36] Adjacent to the main campus, Cornell owns the 2,800 acre (11.6 km2) Cornell Botanic Gardens, a botanical garden containing flowers, trees, and ponds, with manicured trails providing access through the facility.[37] The university has embarked on numerous 'green' initiatives. In 2009, a new gas-fired combined heat and power facility replaced a coal-fired steam plant, resulting in a reduction in carbon emissions to 7% below 1990 levels, and projected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 75,000 tons per year.[38] This facility satisfies 15% of campus electrical needs,[39] and a university-run, on-campus hydroelectric plant in the Fall Creek Gorge
Gorge
provides an additional 2%.[40] The university has a lake source cooling project that uses Cayuga Lake
Cayuga Lake
to air condition campus buildings, with an 80% energy saving over conventional systems.[41] In 2007, Cornell established a Center for a Sustainable Future.[42] Cornell has been rated "A-" by the 2011 College
College
Sustainability Report Card for its environmental and sustainability initiatives.[43] New York City

and Technion- Israel
Israel
Institute of Technology won a competition for rights to claim free city land and $100 million in subsidies to build an engineering campus in New York City. The competition was established by New York City
City
Mayor Michael Bloomberg in order to increase entrepreneurship and job growth in the city's technology sector. The winning bid consisted of a 2.1 million square feet state-of-the-art tech campus to be built on Roosevelt Island on the site of the former Coler-Goldwater Specialty Hospital. Instruction began in the fall of 2012 in a temporary location in Manhattan

Cornell is a non-profit organization governed by a 64-member Board of Trustees consisting of both privately and publicly appointed trustees. Three trustees are appointed by the Governor of New York: one seat is reserved for the eldest lineal descendant of Ezra Cornell; two members from each of the fields of agriculture, business and labor in New York state; eight trustees to be elected from among and by the alumni of the university; two trustees to be elected from among and by the faculty of the university at Ithaca and Geneva; two trustees to be elected from among and by the membership of the university's student body at Ithaca (one undergraduate and one graduate student);[77] and one trustee to be elected from among and by the nonacademic staff and employees of the university at Ithaca and Geneva, 37 trustees at large and finally, the Governor, Temporary President of the Senate, Speaker of the Assembly, and president of the university serve in an ex officio voting capacity.[78][79] Robert Harrison has served as the chairman of the board since 2014.[80] The board elects a President to serve as the chief executive and educational officer.[78] Martha E. Pollack
Martha E. Pollack
was inaugurated as Cornell's fourteenth president on August 25, 2017.[81][82] She succeeded Elizabeth Garrett, who served from July 2015 until her death from colon cancer on March 6, 2016 — the first Cornell president to die while in office.[83][84] The Board of Trustees hold four regular meetings each year, and portions of those meetings are subject to the New York State
New York State
Open Meetings Law.[85] Cornell consists of nine privately endowed and four publicly supported "statutory colleges": the New York State
New York State
College
College
of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College
College
of Human Ecology, School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and College
College
of Veterinary Medicine. These statutory colleges received $131.9 million in SUNY

appropriations in 2010-2011 to support their teaching, research, and service missions, which makes them accountable to SUNY
SUNY
trustees and other state agencies. The budget also includes $3.9 million of state funds for Cornell Cooperative Extension.[86][87][88] Residents of New York enrolled in these colleges also qualify for discounted tuition.[89] However, Attorney General Eliot Spitzer
Eliot Spitzer
issued a 2005 opinion asserting that, with respect to their academic activities, statutory colleges should be understood to be private, non-state parties.[8]:1 Cornell is decentralized, with its colleges and schools exercising wide autonomy. Each defines its own academic programs, operates its own admissions and advising programs, and confers its own degrees. The only university-wide requirements for a baccalaureate degree are to pass a swimming test, take two physical education courses, and satisfy a writing requirement. A handful of inter-school academic departments offer courses in more than one college.[90][91] All academic departments are affiliated with at least one college; the last department without such an affiliation, the Cornell Africana Studies and Research Center, merged with the Arts College
College
in July 2011.[92]

Seven schools provide undergraduate programs and an additional seven provide graduate and professional programs. Students pursuing graduate degrees in departments of these schools are enrolled in the Graduate School. The School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions offers programs for college and high school students, professionals, and other adults.[93] Of the 13,515 undergraduate students, 4,251 (31.5%) are affiliated with the largest college by enrollment, Arts and Sciences, followed by 3,153 (23.3%) in Agriculture and Life Sciences and 2,680 (19.8%) in Engineering. By student enrollment, the smallest of the seven undergraduate colleges is Architecture, Art, and Planning, with 515 (3.8%) students.[10] Several other universities have used Cornell as their model, including Stanford University, the University of Sydney
University of Sydney
in Australia, and the University of Birmingham
University of Birmingham
in the United Kingdom; the latter on the recommendation of one of its financiers, Andrew Carnegie, who was a Cornell Trustee.[94] The university also operates eCornell, which offers both certificate programs and professional development courses online.[95] In addition to being New York's land-grant college, Cornell is also a partner in New York's sea-grant program,[96] is the hub of the Northeast's sun-grant program,[97] and is a part of New York's space-grant consortium.[98] In 2015, Cornell ranked fifth among universities in the U.S. in fund-raising, collecting $591 million in private support.[99] In addition to the central University
University
development staff located in Ithaca and New York City, each college and program has its own staffed fundraising program. In 2006, Cornell launched a $4 billion fundraising campaign, which reached $3 billion in November 2010.[100] In 2013, Cornell's "Cornell Now" fundraising campaign raised over $475 million.[101] Academics[edit]

Cornell is a large, primarily residential research university with a majority of enrollments in undergraduate programs.[102] The university has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 1921.[103] Cornell operates on a 4–1–4 academic calendar with the fall term beginning in late August and ending in early December, a three-week winter session in January, and the spring term beginning in late January and ending in early May.[104] Cornell and Oregon State University
Oregon State University
are two of the three institutions, with the recent addition of Pennsylvania State University, which are members of the Land Grant, Sea Grant, Space Grant, and Sun Grant programs. Admissions[edit] Admission to the university is highly competitive. For Fall 2018, Cornell received over 51,000 freshmen applications; 5,288 were admitted, a 10.3% acceptance rate.[105] For the Fall 2016 enrolled freshmen, the middle 50% range of SAT
SAT
scores were 650-750 for critical reading, and 680-780 for math.[106] The middle 50% range of the ACT Composite score was 31-34.[106] Cornell enrolls students from all 50 U.S. states and more than 120 countries. As of Fall 2014, 25.7% of undergraduate students identified themselves as members of ethnic minority groups.[10] Legacy applicants receive a slight advantage in the admission process.[107] In 2013, the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management accepted 21% of its applicants for its two-year MBA program.[108] Financial aid[edit]

Section 9 of the original charter of Cornell University
University
ensured that the university "shall be open to applicants for admission ... at the lowest rates of expense consistent with its welfare and efficiency, and without distinction as to rank, class, previous occupation or locality."[109] The University
University
Charter provided for free instruction to one student chosen from each Assembly district in the state.[109] Starting in the 1950s Cornell coordinated with other Ivy League schools to provide a consistent set of financial aid. However, in 1989, a consent decree to end a Justice Department antitrust investigation ended such coordination.[110] Even after the decree, all Ivy League
Ivy League
schools continue to award aid on financial need without offering any athletic scholarships.[111] In December 2010, Cornell announced a policy of matching any grant component of financial aid offers from other Ivy League
Ivy League
schools, MIT, Duke University
Duke University
or Stanford, if an accepted applicant is trying to decide between Cornell and those other schools.[112] On January 31, 2008, Cornell announced a new financial aid initiative to be phased in over the following two years. In the first year, 2008–09, Cornell replaced need-based loans with scholarships for undergraduate students from families with incomes under $60,000 and capped such loans annually at $3,000 for students from families with incomes between $60,000 and $120,000. The following year, 2009–10, the program improved by replacing loan with scholarships for students from families with incomes up to $75,000, and capped annual loans at $3,000 for students from families with income between $75,000 and $120,000. For families above $120,000, need-based loans were capped at $7,500 per year.[113] The initiative costs an additional $14 million per year to fully implement.[114] Although Cornell's endowment dropped 27% in the second half of 2008, its President announced that the financial aid initiative will continue by withdrawing an additional $35 million from the endowment for undergraduate financial aid in 2009-10.[115] Cornell is seeking $125 million in gifts to support the financial aid initiative.[116] In 2010, 1,647 of the 3,181 full-time freshmen enrolled were found to have financial need (40%).[117] Of these, Cornell could meet the full financial aid needs of all 1,647 freshmen. Cornell's average undergraduate student's indebtedness at graduation is $21,549.[117] International

Archives.[156] It was the first among all U.S. colleges and universities to allow undergraduates to borrow books from its libraries.[10] In 2006, The Princeton Review
The Princeton Review
ranked it as the 11th best college library,[157] and it climbed to 6th best in 2009.[158] The library plays an active role in furthering online archiving of scientific and historical documents. arXiv, an e-print archive created at Los Alamos National Laboratory
Los Alamos National Laboratory
by Paul Ginsparg, is operated and primarily funded by Cornell as part of the library's services. The archive has changed the way many physicists and mathematicians communicate, making the e-print a viable and popular means of announcing new research.[159] Press and scholarly publications[edit] Main article: Cornell University
University
Press The Cornell University
University
Press, established in 1869 but inactive from 1884 to 1930, was the first university publishing enterprise in the United States.[160][161] Today, the press is one of the country's largest university presses.[10] It produces approximately 150 nonfiction titles each year in various disciplines including anthropology, Asian studies, biological sciences, classics, history, industrial relations, literary criticism and theory, natural history, politics and international relations, veterinary science, and women's studies.[161][162] Cornell's academic units and student groups also publish a number of scholarly journals. Faculty-led publications include the Johnson School's Administrative Science
Science
Quarterly,[163] the ILR School's Industrial and Labor Relations Review, the Arts and Sciences Philosophy Department's The Philosophical Review, the College
College
of Architecture, Art, and Planning's Journal of Architecture, and the Law School's Journal of Empirical Legal Studies.[164] Student-led scholarly publications include the Law Review, the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs' Cornell Policy Review, the International
International
Law Journal, the Journal of Law and Public Policy, the International Affairs Review, and the HR Review. Physical Review, recognized internationally as among the best and well known journals of physics, was founded at Cornell in 1893 before being later managed by the American Physical Society.

Cornell, a research university, is ranked fourth in the world in producing the largest number of graduates who go on to pursue PhDs in engineering or the natural sciences at American institutions, and fifth in the world in producing graduates who pursue PhDs at American institutions in any field.[165] Research is a central element of the university's mission; in 2009 Cornell spent $671 million on science and engineering research and development, the 16th highest in the United States.[166] For the 2004–05 fiscal year, the university spent $561.3 million on research.[167] The primary recipients of this funding were the colleges of Medicine ($164.2 million), Agriculture and Life Sciences ($114.5 million), Arts and Sciences ($80.3 million), and Engineering
Engineering
($64.8 million).[167] The money comes largely from federal sources, with federal investment of $381.0 million. The federal agencies that invest the most money are the Department of Health and Human Services and the National Science
Science
Foundation that make up, respectively, 51.4% and 30.7% of all federal investment in the university.[167] Cornell was on the top-ten list of U.S. universities receiving the most patents in 2003, and was one of the nation's top five institutions in forming start-up companies.[168] In 2004–05, Cornell received 200 invention disclosures, filed 203 U.S. patent applications, completed 77 commercial license agreements, and distributed royalties of more than $4.1 million to Cornell units and inventors.[10] Since 1962, Cornell has been involved in unmanned missions to Mars.[169] In the 21st century, Cornell had a hand in the Mars Exploration Rover Mission. Cornell's Steve Squyres, Principal Investigator for the Athena Science
Science
Payload, led the selection of the landing zones and requested data collection features for the Spirit and Opportunity rovers.[170] Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Jet Propulsion Laboratory
engineers took those requests and designed the rovers to meet them. The rovers, both of which have operated long past their original life expectancies, are responsible for the discoveries that were awarded 2004 Breakthrough of the Year honors by Science.[171] Control of the Mars
Mars
rovers has shifted between NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory

of Puerto Rico.[174] The Automotive Crash Injury Research Project
Automotive Crash Injury Research Project
was begun in 1952.[175] It pioneered the use of crash testing, originally using corpses rather than dummies. The project discovered that improved door locks, energy-absorbing steering wheels, padded dashboards, and seat belts could prevent an extraordinary percentage of injuries.[175] In the early 1980s, Cornell deployed the first IBM 3090-400VF and coupled two IBM 3090-600E systems to investigate coarse-grained parallel computing. In 1984, the National Science
Science
Foundation began work on establishing five new supercomputer centers, including the Cornell Center for Advanced Computing, to provide high-speed computing resources for research within the United States. As an NSF center, Cornell deployed the first IBM Scalable Parallel supercomputer. In the 1990s, Cornell developed scheduling software and deployed the first supercomputer built by Dell. Most recently, Cornell deployed Red Cloud, one of the first cloud computing services designed specifically for research. Today, the center is a partner on the National Science Foundation XSEDE supercomputing program, providing coordination for XSEDE architecture and design, systems reliability testing, and online training using the Cornell Virtual Workshop learning platform.[176] Cornell scientists have researched the fundamental particles of nature for more than 70 years. Cornell physicists, such as Hans Bethe, contributed not only to the foundations of nuclear physics but also participated in the Manhattan
Manhattan
Project (see also: List of Cornell Manhattan
Manhattan
Project people). In the 1930s, Cornell built the second cyclotron in the United States. In the 1950s, Cornell physicists became the first to study synchrotron radiation. During the 1990s, the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, located beneath Alumni Field, was the world's highest-luminosity electron-positron collider.[177][178] After building the synchrotron at Cornell, Robert R. Wilson
Robert R. Wilson
took a leave of absence to become the founding director of Fermilab, which involved designing and building the largest accelerator in the United States.[179] Cornell's accelerator and high-energy physics groups are involved in the design of the proposed International

International
Linear Collider, to be completed in the late 2010s, will complement the Large Hadron Collider

and shed light on questions such as the identity of dark matter and the existence of extra dimensions.[180] In the area of humanities and social sciences, Cornell is best known for being one of the world's greatest centers for the study of Southeast Asia. The Southeast Asia
Southeast Asia
Program (SEAP) at Cornell is designated as a National Resource Center (NRC) by the United States Department of Education 2010–2014. Therefore, the SEAP is nationally prominent in promoting advanced foreign language training, area and international knowledge in the liberal arts and applied discipline focused on Southeast Asia.[181] The George McTurnan Kahin

and be elected to its board of trustees. The George McTurnan Kahin
George McTurnan Kahin
Center is home to SEAP graduate students, visiting fellows and scholars, faculty members, and SEAP's Publication and Outreach offices.[183] As part of its research work, Cornell has established a number of research collaborations with universities around the globe. Foe example, a partnership with the University of Sussex
University of Sussex
(including the Institute of Development Studies

For the 2016-17 academic year, Cornell had over 1,000 registered student organizations. These clubs and organizations run the gamut from kayaking to full-armor jousting, from varsity and club sports and a cappella groups to improvisational theatre, from political clubs and publications to chess and video game clubs.[185] The Cornell International

team is ranked number 16 in the nation.[186] Cornell United Religious Work is a collaboration among many diverse religious traditions, helping to provide spiritual resources throughout a student's time at college. The Cornell Catholic Community is the largest Catholic student organization on campus. Student organizations also include a myriad of groups including a symphony orchestra,[187] concert bands,[188] formal and informal choral groups,[189] including the Sherwoods and Cayuga's Waiters (a pun on the first line of the alma mater, "Far above Cayuga's waters . . . ") and other musical groups that play everything from classical, jazz, to ethnic styles in addition to the Big Red Marching Band, which performs regularly at football games and other campus events.[190] Organized in 1868, the oldest Cornell student organization is the Cornell University
University
Glee Club.[191] A Cornell student organization, The Cornell Astronomical Society, runs public observing nights every Friday evening at the Fuertes Observatory. The university is home to the Telluride House, an intellectual residential society. The university is also home to three secret honor societies called Sphinx Head,[192] Der Hexenkreis and Quill and Dagger[193][194] that have maintained a presence on campus for well over 120 years. Cornell's clubs are primarily subsidized financially by the Student Assembly and the Graduate & Professional Student Assembly, two student-run organizations with a collective budget of $3.0 million per year.[195][196] The assemblies also finance other student life programs including a concert commission and an on-campus theater. Greek life, professional, and honor societies[edit] Main article: List of fraternities and sororities at Cornell University Cornell hosts a large fraternity and sorority system, with 70 chapters involving 33% of male and 24% of female undergraduates.[197][198][199] Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter organization established for African Americans, was founded at Cornell in 1906.[200][201] Alpha Zeta fraternity, the first Greek-lettered organization established for Latin Americans in the United States, was also founded at Cornell on January 1, 1890. Alpha Zeta served the wealthy international Latin American students that came to the United States to study. This organization led a movement of fraternities that catered to international Latin American students that was active from 1890 to 1975.[202] On February 19, 1982, La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda fraternity was established;[203] it would eventually become the only Latino based fraternity in the nation with chapters at every Ivy League
Ivy League
institution.[204] Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi sorority was established on April 16, 1988, making the organization the first Latina-Based, and not Latina exclusive, sorority founded at an ivy-league institution.[205] Cornell's connection to national Greek life is strong and longstanding. Many chapters are among the oldest of their respective national organizations, as evidenced by the proliferation of Alpha-series chapters. The chapter house of Alpha Delta Phi constructed in 1877 is believed to be the first house built in America solely for fraternity use, and the chapter's current home was designed by John Russell Pope.[206] Philanthropy opportunities are used to encourage community relations, for example, during the 2004–05 academic year, the Greek system contributed 21,668 community service and advocacy hours and raised $176,547 in charitable contributions from its philanthropic efforts.[198] Generally, discipline is managed internally by the inter-Greek governing boards. As with all student, faculty or staff misconduct, more serious cases are reviewed by the Judicial Administrator, who administers Cornell's justice system.[198] Press and radio[edit] The Cornell student body produces several works by way of print and radio. Student-run newspapers include The Cornell Daily Sun, an independent daily; The Cornell Review, a conservative newspaper published fortnightly; and The Cornell Progressive (newspaper), a liberal newspaper published every month. Other press outlets include The Cornell Lunatic, a campus humor magazine; the Cornell Chronicle, the university's newspaper of record; and Kitsch Magazine, a feature magazine published in cooperation with Ithaca College. The Cornellian is an independent student organization that organizes, arranges, produces, edits, and publishes the yearbook of the same name; it is composed of artistic photos of the campus, student life, and athletics, and of the standard senior portraits. It carries the Silver Crown Award for Journalism and a Benjamin Franklin Award for Print Design – the only Ivy League
Ivy League
Yearbook with such a distinction.[207] Cornellians are represented over the radio waves on WVBR, an independent commercial FM radio station owned and operated by Cornell students. Other student groups also operate internet streaming audio sites.[208] Housing[edit]

University
housing is broadly divided into three sections: North Campus, West Campus, and Collegetown. Since a 1997 residential initiative, West Campus houses transfer and returning students, whereas North Campus is almost entirely populated by freshmen.[209] The only options for living on North Campus for upperclassmen are the program houses and co-op houses: Risley Residential College, Just About Music, the Ecology
Ecology
House, Holland International
International
Living Center, the Multicultural Living Learning Unit, the Latino Living Center, Akwe:kon, and Ujamaa. In an attempt to create a sense of community and an atmosphere of education outside the classroom and continue Andrew Dickson White's vision, a $250 million reconstruction of West Campus created residential colleges there for undergraduates.[210] The idea of building a house system can be attributed in part to the success of Risley Residential College, the oldest continually operating residential college at Cornell.[211] Additionally, Cornell has several housing areas for graduate and professional students. Of these, Schuyler House (which was formerly a part of Sage Infirmary)[212] has a dorm layout, while Maplewood Apartments, Hasbrouck Apartments, and Thurston Court Apartments are apartment-style, some even allowing for family living. Off campus, many single-family houses in the East Hill neighborhoods adjacent to the university have been converted to apartments. Private developers have also built several multi-story apartment complexes in the Collegetown neighborhood. Nine percent of undergraduate students reside in fraternity and sorority houses, although first semester freshmen are not permitted to join them.[213] Cornell's Greek system has 67 chapters and over 54 Greek residences that house approximately 1,500 students. About 42% of Greek members live in their houses.[214] Housing cooperatives or other independent living units exist, including Watermargin, Telluride House, Triphammer Cooperative, the Center for Jewish Living, the Wait Cooperative, Von Cramm Cooperative Hall, and Cayuga Lodge.[215] Besides this, there exists also cooperative housing not owned by Cornell, like Gamma Alpha or Stewart Little. As of 2014[update], Cornell's dining system was ranked 3rd in the nation by the Princeton Review.[216] The university has 30 on-campus dining locations, and a program called the Cross Country Gourmet Guest Restaurant Series periodically brings chefs, menus, and atmosphere from restaurants to Cornell's ten cafeterias.[217]

championship three times, last in 1990.[222] In 2010, the Cornell men's basketball team appeared for the first time in the NCAA tournament's East Regional Semifinals, known as the "Sweet 16." It was the first Ivy League
Ivy League
team to make the semifinals since 1979.[223] Cornell Outdoor Education[edit] Cornell University
University
runs one of the largest collegiate outdoor education programs in the country, serving over 20,000 people every year. The program runs over 130 different courses including but not limited to: Backpacking and Camping, Mountain Biking, Bike Touring, Caving, Hiking, Rock and Ice Climbing, Wilderness First Aid, and tree climbing.[224] COE also runs one of the largest pre-freshman summer programs known as Outdoor Odyssey.[225] Most classes are often entirely taught by paid student instructors and courses count toward Cornell's physical education graduation requirement.[226] One of the most remarkable facilities at Cornell Outdoor Education is The Lindseth Climbing Wall. The wall is the largest indoor natural rock climbing wall in North America, covering the entire east end of Bartels Hall, and is 160' wide and 30' high, for a total of 4,800 square feet of climbing surface.[227] Over the past year, COE has been extensively fundraising to fully upgrade and modernize the wall.[228] Cornelliana[edit]

is one of the school's oldest traditions and has been celebrated annually since 1901, typically on or near St. Patrick's Day. The dragon is built secretly by the architecture students, and taunting messages are left for the engineering students for the week before Dragon Day. On Dragon Day, the dragon is paraded across the Arts Quad

will walk off their pedestals, meet in the center of the Quad, and shake hands, congratulating themselves on the chastity of students. There is also another myth that if a couple crosses the suspension bridge on North Campus, and the young woman does not accept a kiss from her partner, the bridge will fall. If the kiss is accepted, the couple is assured a long future together.[230] The university is also host to various student pranks. For example, on at least two different occasions the university has awoken to find something odd atop the 173-foot (52.7 m) tall McGraw clock tower—once a 60-pound (27 kg) pumpkin and another time a disco ball. Because there is no access to the spire atop the tower, how the items were put in place remains a mystery.[231] The colors of the lights on McGraw tower change to orange for Halloween and green for St. Patrick's Day.[232] The clock tower also plays music. The school colors are carnelian (a shade of red) and white, a play on "Cornellian" and Andrew Dickson White. A bear is commonly used as the unofficial mascot, which dates back to the introduction of the mascot "Touchdown" in 1915, a live bear who was brought onto the field during football games.[6] The university's alma mater is "Far Above Cayuga's Waters", and its fight song is "Give My Regards to Davy". People associated with the university are called "Cornellians". Health[edit] Cornell offers a variety of professional and peer counseling services to students.[233] Gannett Clinic offers on-campus outpatient health services with emergency services and residential treatment provided by Cayuga Medical Center.[234] For most of its history, Cornell provided residential medical care for sick students, including at the historic Sage Infirmary.[235] Cornell offers specialized reproductive health and family planning services.[236] The university also has a student-run Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agency. The squad provides emergency response to medical emergencies on Cornell University
University
campus and surrounding university-owned properties. Cornell EMS also provides stand-by service for university events and provides CPR, First Aid and other training seminars to the Cornell community.[237] The university received worldwide attention for a series of six student suicides by jumping into a gorge that occurred during the 2009–10 school year, and after the incidents added temporary fences to the bridges which span area gorges.[238] In May 2013, Cornell indicated that it planned to set up nets, which will extend out 15 feet, on five of the university's bridge.[239] Installation of the nets began in May 2013 and were completed over the summer of that year.[238] There were cases of gorge-jumping in the 1970s and 1990s.[240] Before this abnormal cluster of suicides, the suicide rate at Cornell had been similar to or below the suicide rates of other American universities, including a period between 2005 and 2008 in which no suicides occurred.[241][242] Campus police[edit] Cornell University
