4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you come here and you aren't an antisocial, or too timid you will be fine. If you come here and are proactive in making friends, and really sociable YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT F***ING TIME! Just make sure that if you want to have the most fun, you have a fake ID.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: On a weekend out you can expect frat/house parties from 8 - 12 PM. Greek life (off campus) is making a pretty big comeback. Kappa Sigma throw parties every now and then, Delta Kappa Epsilon throws them every weekend which are usually the best parties. AEPi also throws them sometimes. Sports teams also have parties every weekend (i.e. Football, Basketball, Lacrosse). The street to be on is Hudson, but Prospect, Pleasant are usually good too. People usually go to the bars at like 12, until they close. If you are want a little more then you can even go to Cornell for more bars or frat parties. The Party Scene here is LIT.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Some of the best professors and classes in the country, for certain majors. Excellent academics.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school is extremely accepting of all types of races, genders, etc. The only thing that could improve is a larger population of international students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The campus housing is great for upper class-men, but terrible for under class-men. Circles and Garden apartments are great!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Ithaca College is one of the top D3 schools for athletics. Unfortunately, due to the high number of students that are theatre, music majors, or people that just don't have any interest in sports, the school spirit can be lacking sometimes. NOT FOR CORTACA THOUGH!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life here is making a big comeback. There are however, no fraternities or sororities on campus, so all of them operate without the school. Which also makes them a little more fun, since they do not have to answer to the rules of the school. In a span of 1 year, frat parties have gone from non-existent, to regular occurrences.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. If something happens here that is even a little criminal, it is a big deal.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is a group of friends for everyone here. If you are into doing drugs (i.e. smoke weed, drink, X, acid, etc.) then you will find them. However if you are someone that is not interested in doing drugs then you will be fine as well, since there are many people like that here as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors here really are top notch. Of course some majors have better professors than others. For example, the professor in the more notable schools are better than others. However, due to the smaller classroom sizes, you are much more connected with your professors, and they are more willing to help, and interact.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I study Cinema & Photography. Thus, with Ithaca College having one of the top film schools in the country, a degree or experience from this school is extremely important.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I cannot really comment on it, but it is decent.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am really glad that I am made this my #1 choice.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They give us numerous opportunities to network.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoy the social atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Coming from Texas, sports are different.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am enjoying my time here in Ithaca. I am happy.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a great school. The professors are very engaging and helpful. The views are beautiful and the students are very genuine.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus, even late at night there are a lot of people around, and you could get almost all the way across campus walking inside

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are great and really care about you if you take the time

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Average freshman housing, they are clean and the rooms were a little bigger than i expected, but they are residence halls and the storage space is an issue

3 College Freshman

Athletics: i never attend anything but for people who want to there is stuff to watch

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The condition of a lot of the buildings is really outdated but the atmosphere and friendliness of people in Ithaca makes up for it

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personally I have not had an issue, however, our campus police have admitted to being racist which makes a majority of students uncomfortable.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
