Ithaca College was an amazing experience. The college community was very friendly. The facilities were modern. The cafeteria exceed expectations with a great selection. Campus seem safe with a presence of security personnel & kiosks throughout the campus. Campus life was bustling with life even for the time I went.

My school has been very welcoming to freshman so far this year. I have only encountered one upperclassmen who made me feel unwanted, which is pretty good compared to how I thought they would act. Everyone here is so helpful and accepting.
