3 College Junior

Weather: Ithaca weather changes all the time. Some people love it, some people hate it. It's nice to have the whole range of seasons.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I think that diversity at Ithaca is great. Acceptance is very high.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is so-so. I'm happy with it and have nothing to complain about, but it's nothing special either.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is so much variety around Ithaca. The city is chock-full of interesting and fantastic places to eat, and overall is vegetarian/vegan friendly with many organic options.

1 College Junior

Weather: The weather in Ithaca is atrocious. It's beautiful in the summertime, however that weather only carries over for a matter of weeks during the school year. It is more or less like an East Coast Seattle, and it definitely can affect one's attitude during the year, especially winter.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I came to Ithaca College for the Park School, however after experiencing the film program, I decided it was not the major for me. I'm not a writing major at IC, however I don't think this school is worth going to if you are not enrolling in one of their more reputable schools. There is a lot of great faculty here though.

2 College Junior

Campus Quality: There is very little to do in Ithaca despite it being a college town. Most parties take place over at Cornell (about ten minutes away), there is little time to get involved in the extracurricular activities (though there are numerous options).

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Ithaca College has a great program for Communications, Theater, and Music. However, there is a fair amount of favoritism towards these schools and the college invests all its money into constantly renovating its most profitable schools while schools like the School of Humanities and Sciences is often forgotten.

Campus Food: There are dozens of dinning options both in and out of the dinning halls!

Weather: The weather here is great, especially if you come from the North East. It's still shorts weather in October!

Health & Safety: The only problem is that it's practically off campus and a troop to get to if you don't have a car

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus apartments are abundant and extremely nice. The prices are great too!

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.
