Congratulations to the Class of 2022!
Recent graduates reflect on their experiences and studies at Cornell:
"Thanks to my Arts & Sciences education, I am a fluent reader, writer and scholar in four different languages... I wrote my honors theses on Italian and German works of literature, and I spent a summer conducting anthropological research on Quilombola communities in Brazil. The ability to think critically and express myself in several languages has contributed to my analytical skills, professional development and provided me with an international perspective."
