My favorite non-engineering class is Nutrition, Health, and Society. I found the course extremely interesting and relevant to my everyday life. The core lesson of the class is one I feel every student at Cornell should learn — how you can live the longest, healthiest life possible.
I specifically chose Cornell Engineering for three reasons: the students, curriculum, and project teams. When I visited Cornell and went on tours, I also attended a physics class. I immediately noticed that the students were passionate about what they were learning. Not only that, but they were eager to support others. Even though the students are all trying to get the best grade as possible, I noticed that they are still willing to go out of their way to help their peers. Read more
Cynthia is a junior from Jericho, NY studying Environmental Engineering. Outside of the classroom, Cynthia is involved with Cornell Environmental Collaborative, Cornell Sustainability Consultants, Club Rowing, and works at the Campus Sustainability Office. Her favorite place on campus is Libe Slope.
Going to college isn’t only about the classes that one can take, it’s also about the opportunities that one can pursue outside of class. Luckily, Cornell has no shortage of these opportunities. As a freshman engineer, I remember being overwhelmed by all the activities and teams that were available; having just arrived, I wasn’t expecting to have such a wide selection of opportunities immediately available to me. But I took advantage of it, and joined one of the project teams, called Cornell Cup Robotics. Read more
Hi! My name is Andrew and I’m from Chappaqua, New York. I’m a Sophomore majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a Dyson Business minor. On campus, I’m involved in a variety of organizations. My primary ones are DEBUT, a biomedical device project team, Biomedical Engineering Society, where I’m the Professional Development Chair, and Greek Life, where I’m the Treasurer of my fraternity. My favorite Cornell Dairy Ice cream flavor is hands down Big Red Bear Tracks; there’s just nothing quite like it. Read more
My favorite engineering class at Cornell so far has got to be CS 2110/ENGRD 2110. One of the most common computer science courses at Cornell it delves into a lot of the fundamentals of computer science while utilizing the basics taught in an introductory class. It covers a lot of need to know concepts such as traversal of binary trees, heaps, linked lists, and shortest path. The whole course is also taught in Java, a standard, extremely common language which gives students good experience with which they can take with them into personal projects, internships, or eventually work.
