Health & Safety: Sometimes, campus safety seems to go out of their way to give tickets.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: You will meet people from all over the country and the world.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs are very much accessible, but that doesn't mean it is not safe. I haven't heard or seen anyone getting in or causing trouble with the drugs. Perhaps the drugs are used responsibly, for it has not been dangerous on this campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Im sure there is better, but I know there is a lot worse elsewhere.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Average to say the least.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: If you are a Park School student, you can't get a much better communications school. Professors are amazing to go along with the classes.

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.
