Cornell College Welcome

What and why: Prior Prior Year FAFSA is making a major change, and it’s called “Prior Prior Year.” Prior Prior Year translates to “use your tax returns from two years ago to estimate your financial situation for the FAFSA.” The policy is strongly supported by NACAC, and colleges and counselors alike are waiting to see how it changes the game.

Student visit events a success

Destination: Cornell highlights Our first Destination: Cornell for 2016 was a fantastic success. Highlights included an opening welcome from first-year students Lizzie Mombello and Ethan Berube, who shared their enrollment stories, a chemistry demonstration that involved a foam explosion and slime, and the overnight stay events, which included improv and popcorn.

Cornell College and raises concerns Last month we told you that we decided to join Since then, some educators have raised questions in the Huffington Post and The Gazette about how the program truly benefits students, we believe is still a beneficial tool.
