Incoming freshmen and Cornell gym/athletic facilities

I might get up to Ithaca a bit early this summer and was wondering if I would have access to the gyms and whatnot. Are they only accessible once the semester starts?</p>

<p>here are the summer hours: CFC</a> Hours
although the hours aren't up for this school year, it looks like last year a fall semester (or full year) membership took effect in the middle of August, which is actually about a week before orientation begins. if you go around that site a bit more you should be able to figure out exactly what your options are.</p>
