A national liberal arts college with a distinctive One-Course-At-A-Time academic calendar, Cornell College is a recognized leader in undergraduate education by providing one extraordinary opportunity after another to students in the classroom, on campus, and in the world. Located on a National Register of Historic Places campus in historic Mount Vernon, Iowa, Cornell was founded in 1853 and today is an active and diverse residential community of nearly 1,200 students.|
Cornell is featured again in the third edition of “Colleges That Change Lives” (a book by former New York Times education reporter Loren Pope) and was named by the New York Times in 2006 as one of 20 colleges that “stress undergraduate teaching, have established or rising scholarship” and are good alternatives to popular brand-name universities. The 20 “stealth powerhouses” were chosen with the help of higher education experts and counselors from among the more than 2,500 four-year colleges and universities in the United States.
