1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life. I heard that it was banned from Ithaca College.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There's always parties everywhere. It can just be difficult to go to those parties sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I think the reason I feel it's pretty diverse is because I am always around international students and even if they don't have an international status (like me, I live in Boston but I'm from South Africa) they are from a different country.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There's no way to know for sure if anyone has drugs or alcohol in their dorms at any school so I don't blame our school for not knowing sometimes. But there are spots on campus that are known for being drinking or smoking spots and I'm surprised public safety aren't around those spots.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I know of a few students that have been caught by public safety but I also know of a lot that haven't been caught and it's actually really surprising.

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.
