3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In terms of theatre, Ithaca is rated among the top schools for this major. Graduating with this degree under my belt will open a door to many opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Bogart hall, which is a pretty good residential living space. Everyone in the building is nice and loves to have fun. My the only downfall is that all my classes are in Dillingham, which is on the opposite side of the school. No elevators, which is a hassle for moving in/out. Housing process was fine, nothing too spectacular.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really pay attention to the athletics department.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ithaca is so friendly and accepting of all people. The theatre department is everything I could've asked for, and more. I love it.

Party Scene: House party from 8-10. 10pm party get shutdown. 11pm if you are lucky. Then everyone heads to the bars! Get a fake, that or dorm parties are the only way to have fun. Cornell is always dope. They have tons of parties. IC students typically get invited to the non-drinking ones.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: House parties, dorm parties, Cornell frat parties, they are alright.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: They want to talk about diversity as if it is a class. At the end of the day I am of the few minority physics majors in the entire department of physics. Police officers WILL harass you because of your skin color. Some students will harrass you about getting in only because you are African-American or that you have financial aid because of that. Saying "My parents are paying for this school, it isn't fair that you go here for free". Well I don't even have parents to pay for the school. And I did work hard I got a perfect ACT and a 3.0. I did work hard despite being homeless. In the terms of sexual diversity. We are very accepting.

Academics: All the science professors are pretty much professors from Cornell in much smaller classes. We have the exact same curriculum except there is the difference their core belief of teaching in large lecture style halls with 200+ students which they don't do at Ithaca.

Health & Safety: There is a racist sentiment going around. Because of the protests. I have personally had problems with police and other students because I am a student of color. Just watch your back.

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.

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.
