Cornell undergraduates get to know their professors during their time on campus. In fact, 73% of Cornell class sizes are under 30; 87% are under 50, and only 13% of classes being made up of 50-100+ students. All first-year students take two writing seminars from Cornell's nationally recognized first-year writing program. These classes are capped at 17 students. Our faculty are involved in life outside of the classroom as well, serving as academic advisors, supervising independent studies and research projects, and acting as advisors to the more than 1,000 student groups on campus. Cornell’s faculty fellows also live and sometimes teach in first-year residence halls.
