    168,655 views 11 months ago
    Cornell University: Glorious To View celebrates what makes Cornell University so special—its campus beauty, breadth and depth of academics, spirit of inclusiveness, and commitment to serving the public good.

    From its inception, Cornell has aspired to be elite and egalitarian. As founder Ezra Cornell said, “I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study.”

    Produced in honor of Cornell’s 150th birthday and Sesquicentennial Charter Day Celebration, Cornell University: Glorious To View features soaring views of the campus along with interviews with students, faculty and alumni. From the gorges and waterfalls in Ithaca to Weill Cornell Medical College and Cornell Tech in New York City, then across the globe to Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar, and back again to Ithaca, Glorious to View shows you Cornell as you have never seen it before.

    With appearances by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; actor Ed Helms; Google search “architect” Amit Singhal; four-time NCAA wrestling champion and Sports Illustrated Male College Athlete of the Year Kyle Dake; Rhodes Scholars Eduardo Peñalver (Dean of the Law School), Kit Dobyns and Rachel Harmon; New York Times columnist Jane Brody; NBC News correspondent Kate Snow; Breakthrough Prize winner Lewis Cantley; Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann; Mars Rover Principal Investigator Steven Squyres, and more. The video honors Cornell faculty icons Carl Sagan, Vladimir Nabokov, and many others.


    Produced, directed and edited by Micah Cormier. Directors of Photography: Robert Barker, Micah Cormier, Lindsay France, Jason Koski, Scott Sinkler. Aerial Videography by Helicam Aerial Media Services. Audio recording by Scott Sinkler. Sound mix by Bert Reed.
