Update: Given public health concerns regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New York State Department of Health, and per recent executive order by the Governor of New York, the university has implemented enhanced policies for campus community members and visitors.

Until further notice, to protect and prioritize the health and safety of our campus community as well as our alumni, friends, and visitors to campus, all non-essential events, gatherings, visits, programming and travel are canceled. This includes cancelation of campus tours, information sessions, and admitted student programs. We will provide an update regarding when visitation and events will again be available to admissions visitors.

We will provide an update regarding when the office will reopen to visitors as soon as possible. You can still reach us via email with questions. We also invite you to MeetEzra, our searchable database of frequently asked questions (and answers).
Human Ecology is a thriving intellectual community on a dynamic, beautiful, and engaging campus. Once campus reopens, we invite prospective undergraduate applicants and their families to visit to fully appreciate the possibilities the college offers. Cornell University and the College of Human Ecology will offer a number of ways for you to get to know us at that time. .
We hope you will consider how you would use a Human Ecology education as a vehicle for your goals.
