Outdoorsy Cornell

Outside magazine ranks Cornell No. 5 on its list of “Outside Universities”: “Ithaca itself can be pretty great: It’s a central New York town 26 miles from Finger Lakes National Forest, near glacier-carved gorges made the more beautiful by cascading waterfalls. Cornell’s outdoor-ed program offers an impressive array of activities to take advantage of these natural surroundings – and while the full spectrum of options is far too long to list here, a sampling might include backpacking, caving, cycling, climbing, skiing or paddling. Many of these classes can be taken for credit, and for free.”
