"I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study."

Founded in 1865 by Ezra Cornell, now a member of the elite group of schools known as the Ivy League. Regarded to be the easiest to get into (due to the state colleges that are branches of the university) but the hardest to stay in. In one article, it was mentioned as "the only campus where you walk up a 45 degree incline in 45 degree weather to get a 45% on a test."
