Freed from the constraints of the traditional class period, our professors go beyond lectures to create meaningful projects, lead off-campus adventures for a day or a whole block, and devise many other types of hands-on learning. You’ll also have the flexibility to pursue full-time internships, research, and other real-world experiences as part of your normal curriculum. And our pre-professional programs allow you to engage with professionals in the areas of health and medicine, law, literary arts, and economics, business, and public policy.
At Cornell College, you will share a common daily rhythm, bringing you closer to your peers and faculty as a community. With two hours for lunch and all classes out by 3 p.m., our schedule makes it easier for you to be involved in athletics, performing arts, and student organizations to explore your interests and passions beyond the classroom.
Imagine leaving class at 3 p.m. on Wednesday with no deadlines or homework until the following Monday. At Cornell, students enjoy this luxury every single month. You can use your four-day block breaks to relax, catch up, enjoy campus life, or visit home. And they’re tailor made for road trips.
