The top three reasons someone should attend Cornell University is because of its: life-long membership in a huge and useful network and community; high prestige not only in the United States, but also the world; and the guaranteed mental challenge.

The campus is the most beautiful college campus I've ever been on, they offer a class in virtually every subject one can imagine--and thus allowing the students explore to stretch their boundaries to their hearts' contents--and, while the academics are challenging, the community is also supportive and helpful so that no one gets left behind even though they take a risk and challenge themselves.

1) The people. You will never stop meeting students that impress you in new ways. 2) The education. A world-class education at a university founded upon the mission of "any person, any study." 3) The setting. Besides being named BusinessInsider's "Best College Town in the Country," Cornell exists in an unbelievably gorgeous natural setting. The campus is situated between two gorges, tens-of-thousands of acres of nature reserves, waterfalls, trails and the best of the Finger Lakes region.

A few reasons someone should attend Cornell University are 1) We have the strongest Yak game out there. 2) The Gorges are gorgeous (yet don't be caught saying this out loud). 3) Cornell is in Ithaca, and this quaint town is it's own unique brand of weird and that makes it beautiful.

I don't think I have three reasons, because I don't think that three reasons would encompass all the reasons why I love it here. To sum it all up, Cornell is challenging. There will be times when you feel stressed, or when you don't get as much sleep as you'd want, or when you don't do as well on an exam as you thought. But (for me at least), those times are few and far between. I think that one of the common personality traits of Cornell students is a desire to push yourself, to learn more, to do better, and to create solutions that you otherwise would have never thought of. That drive to push the limits of what we already know is the reason why I love it here, and it's the reason why I'd absolutely recommend anyone who has the opportunity to come to Cornell.

The first reason to attend Cornell would be the abundance of resources to help anyone with any study. The second reason would be the possibility to be surrounded by some of the greatest minds of our time who can help foster a community of academic excellence. Finally, once outside of Cornell, people will recognize the value of a Cornell education, serving as an appropriate payoff for the time and effort spent while at Cornell.
