The Cornell Review
was established in the spring of 1984 in response to the school’s liberal
atmosphere. The founders—Jim Keller, Jerome D. Pinn, Anthony Santelli Jr.—sought to unmute the conservative voice, rebutting Cornell’s history of liberal
activism. Since its inception, the Cornell Review has been the only consistent conservative
presence on campus. Last year, the Review proudly reverted its subheader back to the original: “The
Conservative Voice on Campus.”
For the past 30 years, the newspaper has staffed a variety of writers, including social
traditionalists, libertarians, neoconservatives, and others who together compose the diversity of
the conservative community. The staff has taken measures to uncover radical activities,
contravene institutionalized liberalism, and rekindle American principles on a campus that is
a bastion for progressivism. We seek to provide Cornell students with a more thoughtful point of view
than the limited perspective they usually receive on campus.
In 2009, the Review launched its blog, the Cornell Insider. The Review is a member of the Collegiate Network
The Review publishes biweekly. Find it around campus!
