Cornell College is located on a wooded hilltop in the heart of Mount Vernon, Iowa, a charming town in the middle of Iowa's thriving Cultural Corridor. The entire campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and our gothic chapel can be seen for miles around.
Just a few blocks down the hill, Mount Vernon's main street boasts another National Historic District, hip clothing and antiques stores, and lots of really great coffee.
Mount Vernon, Iowa, could best be described as urban fringe, where the best big city comes to a small town venue with art festivals, popular local restaurants and cafés, and quirky boutiques. If you like chocolate, sidewalk chalk, art, chili, or magical nights—all of which have their own festivals in Mount Vernon—you only have to walk a few blocks to our uptown business district to check it out. On the way, if it’s wintertime, you can zoom down Pres Hill, a city street closed for sledding.
92% of students live on campus. And with a population that is mostly from beyond Iowa, most students stay on campus through the weekends. As a first-year student, you’ll share a floor with other first-years, forming an instant support group. And living on campus makes it easier for you to connect to academic and co-curricular opportunities on campus
