2 College Freshman

Transportation: There is public transportation that comes to the school. Very inconvenient thought, and not reliable.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: This is the worst thing Ithaca College did by telling everyone that lots of places in town accept student money and / or discounts. My parents thought this was the best thing in the world until I told them that it was a blatant lie.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: Literally nothing at all to do in Ithaca. The college make it seem like a lot would be going on, but this is not the case at all.

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.
