I had never really heard of Cornell all that much other than it was a great Ivy League school. Before going to Cornell I remember looking up all these pictures and seeing the beautiful campus. Trust me it is way more beautiful in person. The pictures barely even gave me a glimpse of the school. When I arrived there was so much more than what Google maps could provide. I honestly was blown away once being there and after a while began to feel as my home.
The environment was green all around, but the only thing I was not really used to wasn't the green environment, but the isolation of the college. There was College Town where there was a couple of food shops, the mall, and the commons where it was like downtown. To get to some of these places I had to ride a bus. I definitely was not used to their being so less I guess you could say, but it did let me get closer to peers. I spent most of my time on campus with friends and if I left to go somewhere I would leave with friends. At first I did not like the feel of isolation, but it kind of brought everyone together. I still though did not like the fact of lack of food places and quality of food places. Maybe since where I am from I am constantly surrounded by food or I am just a food lover, but Ithaca lacked the food experience.
