Student Life

As you settle into life as a Cornell student, you will discover that Cornell is special -- that its location, its diverse student body and the vibe on campus create a community where everyone can find a niche, an activity, an organization or a lab where you feel right at home.

You will also find vast resources to support your needs, from health care to counseling to academic help and special support for first-year, transfer and international students.

Whether you want to nibble on local food, create music with a jazz group or compete on a club or varsity lacrosse team, more than 1,000 student organizations are already created for you to join. Or you might create one of your own.
