A 07'09" video explains the assets of the Ivy League
now might have become their flaw
and scroll down to watch the video.
The prestigious Ivy League Colleges (Columbia, Princeton, Harvard...) are used to generating America's elite : from President Obama -and the First Lady- to all the judges in the Supreme Court, now. This exclusive educational system is meant to give birth to nearly cloned and moulded winners : a system that's more and more criticized by the Americans. To such an extent, that learning from failure... starts being taught there !
Sylvie Laurent, a French senior lecturer -and an America specialist- teaching in Paris 'Sciences Po', decodes the Ivy League : though she speaks French the document sounds interesting :-)

Cornell belongs to the Ivy League : it is in Ithaca -New York-
and was founded in 1865. Your can see ivy covering part of its buildings...
