General information

Cornell University is a member of the Ivy League and is one of the finest institutions of higher education in the world. With Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners among its illustrious faculty, Cornell is ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top universities in the nation. The university itself is comprised of seven undergraduate colleges: The College of Arts and Sciences; Agriculture and Life Sciences; Industrial and Labor Relations; Human Ecology; Architecture, Art, and Planning; Engineering; and Hotel Management. The Cornell Campus itself is located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State in scenic Ithaca. The Cornell University campus, with its magnificent gorges and waterfalls, is virtually unmatched in its beauty. Fencing at Cornell has enjoyed a tradition of excellence since the early 1900s. The Big Red women’s squad has generally placed among the top 10 at the national tournament. Six women at Cornell have gone on to win individual national championships and the team has produced many All-Ivy and All-American fencers as well. Fencing officially became a varsity sport at Cornell in 1898. A women’s fencing club was established in 1926 and Cornell was almost immediately competitive in intercollegiate meets. In 1929, the first Intercollegiate Women’s Fencing Association championship tournament was held at Cornell, and by 1930, the Big Red had claimed the national crown. The women enjoyed national titles from 1967-69 and in 1972 and 1973. Since that time, many individual competitors have made their mark nationally and the Big Red gaining ground both in the Ivy League and nationally.
