Most of the buildings on Ithaca College's campus are fairly old looking, with a look of dirty cement and faded paint. The dreadful winter weather can make the buildings seem even more unappealing than they are. With that being said, there are several buildings that have recently been redone. One campus bright spot is outside of Dillingham, the theater building, where beautiful fountains spray high into the air. When the sun is shining, this is a great sight to come across. Unfortunately, the fountains are only on from summer up until fall break.
The Roy H. Park School of Communications has state-of-the-art facilities, including the most updated Apple computers and software. Although many of the classrooms in the Park School do not have windows, the overall feel of the school is very aesthetically pleasing. Park has a plethora of media resources for students, including a dark room and television and radio equipment. The Center for Natural Sciences has extensive laboratories, while the Center for Health Sciences has a speech and hearing clinic, physical and occupational therapy clinics, and a wellness center. Whalen Center for Music has recording facilities and practice rooms. The College even has an observatory, which is the perfect place to look out into the sky. The business school houses the Center for Trading and Analysis of Financial Instruments, and the lag time between the NY Stock Exchange and IC’s trading data is one-fourth of a second. The business school also has mahogany lockers and is a prime example of environmental stewardship, incorporating the highest principles of sustainable design.
