3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: very hit or miss, great options and quality some nights and the opposite other nights. Stick to Towers and terrace dining halls...campus center is not good

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety are always around and are looking out for students. the only complaint I have is that students are discouraged from calling 911 in a medical emergency but are to instead call public safety and have they look at what has happened and they will call 911 but by then it might be too late.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: For every major and minor you have at Ithaca, you get a separate adviser that can help with anything you would need to know about classes, internships, job opportunities, and more.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: For most major you just have to sign up on the application but for others like anything in the music school or theatre art department, you have to have an audition and only the best students get into the program.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got $15,000 a year for my major in aid just to start and they have these scholarships for just about every major in the school but tuition is still very high and it's hard to get all the money necessary.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The tcat can be unreliable sometimes and they don't update their website with minor rout changes that can keep you from getting to your destination by miles. But most of the time it's not time and cheep quick and easy.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: The winters are harsh. Bring a couple of warm coats and long-johns. Because of out proximity to Lake Cayuga, the moisture for the lake and the cold mountainous air make it snow all the time. It okay because most of the academic buildings are conceited but you'll have to get there from your dorm which is not bad if you live in the quads but if you live in the terraces, you're in for a world of cold

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great but they force the fyre program on you now and it is not that great. The building are clean and pretty modern looking. There are plenty of things to do and people to meet.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I'm not a party-er but when I do want to go out it's easy to get to Cornell or a sports house party if you know who to ask but you'll need to know some people in the Theatre Arts department to get in to any of the awesome Theatre parties.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Ithaca is known for having more fie star restaurants per square mile than New York City and they are affordable and right in the Commons or Collegetown.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off campus but I have looked into it but when going to agencies, they say there is more housing for Cornell on their side of town which can be a problem if you don't have a car.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Although Ithaca does lack in people of color, the students who are and the students who are not get along nicely. the lgbtq+ community is also very strong here and a member of the lgbtq+ community that makes me feel like I am not alone or weird.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spend too much money on our D3 sports teams and not enough on other clubs and activities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The vegetarian options are as plentiful as they could be especially at Late Night.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I wish there was a little more diversity, but otherwise, the people are pretty average.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's not the most diverse place but it's still a really accepting place. No one would give you the stink eye if you associate yourself with a specific political party, religion, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Everything is fine. Registration is by far the worst however. But to each it's own.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Well my current major, it's challenging and interesting but the workload is tremendous. Make sure your prioritize.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Most of the students support the sports teams.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: For every place I've been to, I've enjoyed the food for the most part.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It all depends on what building you're living in.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Always plan according to the weather.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone at Ithaca College is kind, caring, smart, and intelligent.

Technology: They're pretty good and I use them whenever I need to and I really don't have any problems with them.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police are always around and they always let the students know if certain incidents took place on campus.

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.
