Support Structures

in this section

The Cornell campus is big enough to have its own zip code, and that can be overwhelming at first. But there also are many factors that make Cornell feel smaller and more manageable, such as the advising and support programs offered each step of the way by both the university and the College of Engineering. Faculty and staff members are committed to providing the help students need in finding their way around campus and negotiating the course requirements, hard work, and other challenges that life at Cornell will present to them. Although they may be leaving home for the first time, incoming students receive considerable support as they learn to fend for themselves.
