Ertl admitted to Cornell College


Cornell College is pleased to announce that students from around the country have been admitted to Cornell College for the Fall 2017 semester, including Heidi Ertl of Hancock.

One of the select “Colleges That Change Lives,” Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, is a national liberal arts college with a distinctive One Course At A Time curriculum. The One Course schedule provides students the chance to dive into their studies, focus more intensely on the disciplines of their choice, and learn authentically with the unique freedom to shed the confines of the traditional classroom to study off-campus, pursue research, or accept an internship-all without missing out on other classes.

Cornell is nationally recognized for its value, including by Kiplinger’s, which included Cornell on its list of the 100 best values in private colleges for 2016, and the Fiske Guide to Colleges, which named Cornell College one of the 24 “Best Buys” among private colleges. Ninety-three percent of Cornell graduates earn their degrees in four years. In 2013 Cornell was named one of the 25 colleges with the best professors by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.
