While traveling through Cairo, Egypt, for two days after a trip to Kenya, Dorothy Lincoln-Smith ’58 promised her children she would stay in the hotel due to the political unrest. “Well, I disobeyed and hired a taxi to take me to the pyramids. I was the only person of any nationality at the pyramids that day,” she reports. “The driver took me directly in and around the amazing edifices and there were eight camels with owners waiting patiently for someone to give them some business. What could I do but ride for awhile?”

“Cornell College has been a fantastic place for me to enjoy the best Iowa has to offer without compromising a world-class liberal arts education. Cornell provides a unique environment for students to learn, by combining the small town Iowa community of Mount Vernon with the vast diversity of the student body. Cornell gives students the very best of both Iowa and the rest of the world. I love being a Cornell student because it gives me the opportunities of a much larger school, yet still remains intimate and personal without compromising on liberal-arts ideas. And it’s close to home.” —Logan Schultz ’14 Dubuque, Iowa

Telling the story of Cornell

Cornell College alumni are among the college’s most passionate and effective advocates. Their experiences provide powerful stories to communicate the value of a Cornell education.

Civil rights activists assemble on the stairs of the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, Montgomery, Ala., where the Montgomery Bus Boycott was organized in 1955-1956. John Watson ’68 is at center. Roger Davis ’65

The March for Freedom

It was March 1965 and news of brutal attacks on civil rights marchers from Selma to Montgomery, Ala., hit the Cornell campus. A small group of students quickly coalesced to drive down and join the reinforcements.
