This is actually pretty true in that this school is awesome if you're one of the "Outgoers" although I think this categorization gives some weird connotations. The thing about Cornell's greek system is that it allows you to find all the people most similar to you out of 13,000, which otherwise is really hard to do. But then you've found your best friends, and they make you wonder why your high school friends were the ones they were
I think so. Since it's much a broader environment and there much more people there.
thanks! but would u say it's hard to establish a friend group in such a vast and enormous campus?
I don't think so at all. Since there are many people there, there would a high chance that you would find somebody that has a similar interest with you.
I dispute your premise that the campus is "vast". Most of the colleges at Cornell are tiny. I'm in the Hotel School, and there are only 800 students here. ILR has only 550, and Architecture has only 500. As for your social life, Cornell has over 800 clubs, Greeks, and organizations. So it's inevitable that you will find other people who have your interests.
I always find myself in some type of clique or drama but it has helped me grow as a person but I'm sure you'll be fine!
It depends. I came to Cornell from a high school with a 30 person graduating class, so it's vastly different for me. You really just need to find a group to spend time with, and be active about making friends.

Although the guys seem to be rated slightly higher than the girls, Cornell University is huge, so there are plenty of choices. Stereotypes do exist, so you may find the occasional anti-social dork or arrogant frat-boy, but there are plenty of fun and attractive people if you look around.
The Greek system is a huge part of the social scene, leading to an abundance of antiquated stereotypes about women, casual hookups, and mindless drinking, but some people enjoy the Greek scene. Others prefer to hang out in Collegetown or downtown Ithaca, and you can generally find a more diverse selection of people at these places.
