A: Completely false. The Cornell suicide rate is below the national average for college-aged students. This rumor is probably propagated because of the many beautiful gorges on campus. It's more dramatic to say that somebody jumped off a bridge than if they killed themself some other way. The highest suicide rate belongs to another top school, though not an Ivy.
Funny reply.Esp in The highest suicide rate belongs to another top school, though not an Ivy.
Contract (state supported) schools at Cornell are NOT SUNY schools. There is a significant differnce in tuition for NYS residents at a Contract college at Cornell $20,000 vs. $35,000 for Endowed (private) schools or non-NYS residents. $15,000 savings is nothing to complain about, for sure!
My interviewer told me how the whole suicide rumor started. About 20 years ago, a documentary was made about suicide rates among college students, and it was filmed on the campus of Cornell University. Because of that, people have assumed that the documentary wouldn't have been filmed on a campus where the suicide rate wasn't high (which is false). She also said that all throughout the campus there are huge gorges which drunk students casually fall into.
What better place to kill yourself than near a beautiful waterfall and gorges that are amazing? Think of the water flowing pass you as you bleed excessively on the floor. The leaves as green as can be and the sun shining brightly above your corpse. Birds would fly by and sing songs of merry and cheer. OH GOD thinking about it makes me all warm inside!!
