3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am a freshman. It is dope. This kids can be really snobby about how much money they have. Don't mention that you are poor or on financial aid here.

Campus Housing: Walls are too thin if I can here the couple upstairs and next to my dorm going at it. Other than that the business and human sciences building which are brand new. The other buildings are nothing new nor exciting.

Athletics: As an athlete, our facilities are pretty great with the exception that we do not have a turf field for football and soccer.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some of the materials used in classes are outdated and some professors expect a lot more out of you than is necessary. Overall Ithaca is an okay school some great aspects and some not so great aspects.

4 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I love being a part of a varsity sports team! such a great community

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I have attended maybe two games and both times I have been disappointed both times because my school's team isn't that great.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ithaca College was one of my top schools to choose from. I love my school, I love the environment, and i love being there. There is a revolution going on full of protests and civil disobedience, other than the distraction that those events cause, I am having an amazing time and meeting a lot of nice people and getting a wide array of experiences and opportunities that further bring me closer to my dream.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They are on their toes for the most part !

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses at IC arent to bad and if you really are interested in learning about a specific topic that shouldnt be to hard here. It really depends on who is teaching the course and you can go to to make sure you are going to get good professors or not.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its not the best if youre a freshman or sophomore but really good if you are upperclassmen living in Gardens or Circle apartments.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are only unaffiliated frats that live of campus and thats it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Its not huge at our school since we are D3

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy Ithaca (surprisingly because it was a safety school for me) . The kids here for the most part are very engaging and friendly. I have met a lot of good people that care about me and same for them. Depending on your major, the workload isnt to bad and for me being an exploratory major I had a lot of freedom and time to do work for all of my classes without being stressed out. I really am glad I chose to go here in the end bc aside from all of the debt im going to be in the career services here are very helpful and IC has so many connections; therefore networking is key and you can make it far !

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors and courses are either hit or miss, workload depends on the professor. Registration process is almost always a mess.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are the biggest plus of the school. Ranges from around 10 - 20 students in a class.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Weed and alcohol everywhere. If you're not comfortable with it, you probably shouldn't come here.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Meh. Ithaca College isn't terribly known, I don't think, and the experience itself wasn't great.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Terrible, terrible, terrible. Reslife is the worst. That being said, obviously the apartments are the best places to live 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.
