The old pun around Cornell stands ever true; Ithaca is Gorges. The atmosphere around Ithaca and Cornell's campus may seem a bit wet sometimes, but overall it is the most beautiful campus I've ever been on, and being able to interact with the faculty and the students here have been a blessing with me.
