Staying in Ithaca

Located in the heart of wine country in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, Cornell University‘s campus is considered one of the most beautiful in the United States.

Founded in 1865 by Ezra Cornell, the school is the youngest member of the Ivy League and is organized into seven undergraduate colleges and seven graduate schools. It was Ezra Cornell’s vision to “found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study.”


During the program, you will be staying at the Statler Hotel. Conveniently located on the Cornell University Campus, the Statler offers a non-smoking environment with free high-speed internet access and provides guests with 24-hour access to an exercise room.
