Parents & Families
Congratulations! You are officially the proud parent, guardian or family member of a student with an extraordinary opportunity awaiting them. Choosing Cornell College means becoming part of an extended family of students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends. It also means your student will be attending an institution recognized as one of the nation’s finest and most distinctive colleges, and a proud member of Colleges That Change Lives (www.ctcl.org).
Cornell College is a relationship-based institution, and our students are doing more than just taking one course at a time. Our superb faculty of scholars and mentors, along with our dedicated staff, embrace the opportunity to work closely with passionate and motivated undergraduates. Cornell students are challenged to grow not only academically, but personally, and are surrounded by valuable resources to help ensure their success. Cornell College features a community where students get involved and give back; where individual and cultural differences are valued; and where meaningful, lifelong friendships and relationships are born.
We encourage you as the parent or family member of a future Cornellian to familiarize yourself with the Parent & Family Gateway. This is the primary portal to stay connected and informed throughout your students' undergraduate experience.
