Cornell College has played host to hundreds of world-renowned figures in its more than 150 year history. Here is a selection of some of those guests. Among the visitors are candidates seeking the U.S. Presidency, the road to which often goes through the Iowa caucuses.
In a tightly-contested caucus season, Cornell has become a hot-spot for candidates and campaigns to spread their message to Iowa voters.
While Cornell endorses no candidate or party, it does actively encourage students to partake in the democratic process and encourages political discourse of all kinds. And when the early caucus date threatened to keep students from participating over winter break, Cornell responded and opened Merner Hall to the politically-minded student.
