2 College Sophomore

Majors: In my opinion it is very hard for me to get into my program. I am in the process of switching majors but I cannot register for various classes required by that major because I am not technically in it yet. I also needed to get at least a B+ in a course to be accepted into the major, which is fine, however, the professor that taught the course this past semester had not taught it in some time and graded unfairly at times. The last professor (who is still teaching on campus) was much better I have heard.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are no sororities or fraternities directly associated with our school but there are some off campus. It is very confusing to me how the process works.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love Ithaca! Going downtown is such fun and the atmosphere just on campus is very beautiful. Ithaca is a very clean place to be!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not personally lived off campus but I know people who have and they say it is a very safe place and it is easy to catch the bus to get to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Coming from a high school filled with not so great or open minded people, it is great to come to a school that has many students that are interested in the same things I am and that are open minded people. There are some people that are not too nice but you will find that anywhere.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

When students are asked to evaluate their overall experience at IC, they often look at the lessons they learned both inside and outside of the classroom. Students who go beyond the social aspect of college and get involved end up both gaining the most experience and having the most fun. Many students love IC because of its size. Sometimes, it’s hard to walk anywhere on campus without bumping into someone you know. With such dreadfully cold winters, the academic programs and well-organized student groups are the main reasons students come back every year. Also, the great size allows students to connect with other students in their majors and their professors/advisers, as well. 

Like many things in life, students’ experiences with IC are simply what they make of them. If you sit in your dorm room for four years, you will be miserable. If you experience the life Ithaca has to offer and go outside of your comfort zone, you most likely won’t regret your decision to attend IC. The school’s high retention rate proves this. IC offers a great mix of academics and everything else college life should offer—friends, fun, professional opportunities, active campus life, and a time to learn and grow.
