Cornell College


Established in the year of 1853 and originally known as the Iowa Conference Seminary, Cornell College earned its present official name in the year of 1857, when it was named after William Wesley Cornell, a devout Methodist. Cornell College became the first Iowa College to grant women the same privileges as the men. Over years Cornell College grew to become one of the leading independent, co-educational, liberal arts colleges and distinguished itself as a visionary leader in providing academic excellence to its students. Cornell College is affiliated to the United Methodist Church and is dedicated to fostering moral and intellectual growth among its students.
