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.

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.

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 Experience: The variety of classes is awesome. There are larger lectures of a little over 100 kids for 101 classes but most classes have >20 kids which makes the learning more personal.

Overall Experience: In my program I am required to hold three clinicals which are basically internships. These are built into the program I just have to apply to an office which is awesome because I can go almost anywhere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is fun. You're near your friends all the time, the dorms are constantly being cleaned and they aren't too far from classes.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: No one really watches varsity games except for the Cortland-Ithaca football game, Cortaca.

4 College Freshman

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.
