2 College Sophomore

Athletics: My high school games were way more exciting than an Ithaca College game. Cortica is the only game people go to. I've gone to a few foot ball games besides Cortica and honestly my little brothers peewee football games are more exciting. There aren't many other students who go to the games. Only friends of players on the team.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So many rich kids I cannot connect too. So many LGBTQ people that pose as the super accepting person that's actually more judgmental then you will believe. Freshman year wasn't great because the people I made friends were terrible. They were just really mediocre and made me miss my friends from back home. One reason I had a disconnect with my friends from school is the wealth. is all of kids on my floor I would hang out with would never go to late night. They smoke pot just order food every night instead of making the walk to the dinning hall. My parents don't have money to just feed into my bank account. Not like my family struggles through poverty but they're not going to just put $1,000 in my checking account every month. That's insane and these kids don't even realized that their mothers and fathers are paying for their unnecessary meals and marijuana. Not everyone is like this eventually I found some people I could connect too. But people have this problem at every school. It's luck to find people you like right off the bat and stick with them.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The only security here is public safety which isn't very reliable at "protecting" students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors are really good at what they do others have no clue what they are talking about and it shows in the way they answer questions.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career services is as useful as you allow it to be.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its not that bad most living options are close to classes unless you're an upperclassman who lives in circles or terraces which still isn't too far. Garden apartments and circle apartments are the most comfortable on campus residences.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There isn't any official greek life on the campus so people have to go to Cornell to join their greek life which is pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Its a D3 school so the athletes are okay which is why most people here probably aren't very into the sports teams.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school isn't all that it claims to be. Its pretty in the fall but thats about it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall Ithaca is an amazing school for relations within your department. The learning atmosphere, at least as far as I've experienced, houses people who have all been successful in their field and have come back to pass on what they've used. The student relationships are strong within your specific school/department, but I can't say I really know many people outside of the department i'm in. The freshman year residential experience stuff is a pain and the on-campus tensions are extrodinarily high for POC issues. But overall I would definitely pick the school over if I had the chance.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Ithaca does not support Greek Life

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports matter, but grades do as well

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers genuinely care about the students

2 College Freshman

Athletics: It's not a huge part of the Ithaca experience

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I work as a member of the Student Auxiliary Safety Patrol, and I can say that Ithaca College provides many methods of safety around campus and counseling for those who have suffered from assault.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ithaca College is an extremely liberal school in a hippy town that offers a unique "college town" experience.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ithaca College is known for the Park School of Communications and the music school. Because of this, it is slightly easier for people in this fields to get jobs after college when compared to other schools.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in the FYRE community. Everyone in my building is close and we throw amazing events.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Ithaca isn't exactly known for their athletics department, with the exception of crew, but the facilities and gyms are up to date and have ever machine needed for students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ithaca is an amazing school. Between PPECS, film professors, and FLEFF, I have tons of valuable resources available to me

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Your college experience depends on what you put into it. If you just sit in your room and wait for opportunities to come to you, then you will end up wanting to transfer. However, if you make an effort to meet new people, join clubs, and go out on the weekends (if thats what you like to do) then you will end up being surprised at how much you are actually enjoying yourself. I have loved my time here! I play for the club basketball team, joined an unofficial fraternity, run a film production group, and met more people and gained more friends than I could have wished for. The professor are top notch, and you will get from your education as much as you seek to. If you make an effort to connect and communicate with them, then you will have it reciprocated.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School is interesting to me. Being at Ithaca college, I do not feel as if I fit in here. Most kids are theater majors and keep to themselves.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful, the student body is kind and accepting and the professors are very personal. I joined the school's cheerleading team and was able to compete nationally, I mentor students with professors I have built strong relationships with and I get to wake up everyday at a school I love surrounded by people I love.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school offers a lot of opportunities and has good teachers. Not everything is very challenging and the social climate is not amazing but the academics are pretty good on the overall.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Occupational Therapy program here is awesome. The professors are really experienced and we do a lot of hands on learning. Outside of my O.T. classes, I've fallen in love with other classes too like storytelling, Shakespeare, astronomy, and honors courses on simple machines, the Iliad, and the Dark Knight Trilogy. I've learned so much and have adored nearly all of my classes here. My main issue with Ithaca is the tuition- I'm a sophomore and already over $60,000 in debt which is just absurd. I feel guilty for coming here sometimes but the school has offered me so much in quality and quantity inside and outside of my classes that I feel justified in my choice. Ithaca is gorgessssssss

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.
