3 College Freshman

Athletics: I only go to the games to see my friend dance

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I guess. I really don't know

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've been lucky to never be that sick to head over to the health center. But I went for a flu shot and it went smooth.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Sometimes the paths are icy, but they try there best to put salt before classes. No matter how bad it is, classes are NEVER canceled.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Social Life on Ithaca Sucks!!!! If you want a good time, head over to Cornell's parties, those are the best. Just make sure you have your money saved for the fee.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's regular, the rooms are good. Heating could be better, but I think that just my building.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I feel like it's been a recent thing with Ithaca trying to accept more minorities. Especially since upperclassmen have told me there are a lot of minorities in my class than theirs. Diversity at Ithaca is still a work in progress.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: Taxi purposefully overprice.

TCAT is slow

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys on campus have such a variety to choose from that it's hard to be a girl sometimes. If you want to hook up, there's always an opportunity at parties and the bars.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I love the commons and college town! Wegmans is close by too.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The commons and college town are amazing for food! Try all the restaurants you can! There are some hidden gems too.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Certain schools are definitely better. As a psychology major, sometimes I doubt my decision but the hands on experience like research team and other things definitely make up for it.

Athletics: Cortaca is the one day that our school spirit comes out for athletics. However, our facilities are really nice. I love that the varsity athletes have their own weight rooms so they don't get to use up the fitness center.

Diversity: Ithaca is known as being an extremely diverse place, you'll find so many people who you would never expect to be friends walking around together.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Park, PT, Music, and Theater are amazing. Everything else is pretty good but you don't get all the perks of being in one of the best programs.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife at Ithaca is what you make of it. If you don't bother looking for something then you don't have fun. At first as a freshman it sucks, but Ithaca is unusual in the sense that it gets better every year.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It all depends on your RA as an underclassmen. You can have whoever stay in your room whenever and you don't have to check them in or anything which is pretty nice. Just suck up to authority figures on your floor and they won't care too much about your drinking or smoking on the floor as long as you "attempt" to keep it hidden.

Campus Housing: Freshman have pretty convenient housing, housing options for sophomores kind of suck. Circles and off campus houses are sick.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The TCAT is your best friend. It sucks that Cornell gets to ride for free and we don't but 1.50 in cash or 1 on your ID isn't that bad and it's really fun when you're drunk.

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.
