Many. I'm from Florida, and you'll meet people from all over the nation and all over the world.
Very few. Almost everyone is from New England, New York State, southern California, or International.
How would people receive a Tennessee girl with a pretty strong accent?
Totally cool. One of my suite mates is from southern Missisissppi and she is one of my best friends in the world. I always thought that white southerners were prejudiced, but she completely changed my mind.
You won't be alone. My best friend here is from Tennessee. Your accent will likely be a great icebreaker if nothing else. Being from Nor Cal, it doesn't really matter since my accent really wasn't that distinguishable from the locals.

Cornell professes a commitment to diversity, and this is evident on campus by the numerous clubs, organizations, and classes dedicated to a variety of ethnicities, races, religions, and political views. There are also many international students and faculty. Support services are available for every walk of life. However, these services may dwindle in the future as increasing budget cuts hit groups and departments dedicated to minority services. In recent years, bias-related incidents have risen on campus—ignorance and outright racism does still exist—but this is still the exception, not the rule.
Overall, students are ambivalent in regards to the diversity of Cornell’s actual student population. Some feel that the school is populated by a majority of Asians and whites from New York City and the Long Island area. Certain Cornellians feel separated from minority groups, while others have a culturally and ethnically diverse mix of friends. Without a doubt, the student body represents a broad range of ideas and backgrounds, even if social scenarios don’t always favor integration. As long as you’re aware of the many groups and their activities on campus, you will have ample opportunity to mix with all different types of people.
