4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I feel comfortable and as if I fit into the school very well because of my dress/appearance, interests, social life, and relationships.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are your typical jocks and cheerleaders, nerds and musicians, and artists. There is a lot of diversity throughout the campus and many unique people to meet.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I think everyone is awesome! Especially if you're involved with Athletics. I play volleyball and I have made a lot of friends through that connection to volleyball and the athletics program as a whole. A lot of us are friends and support one another at games and such. Overall I think the students that attend Ithaca are pretty attractive and there is definitely a certain style.. LL bean boots, flannels, leggings, and a north face vest is probably one of the most sported outfits here. I'm not complaining though because a lot of what is considered cute and fashionable is also very comfortable.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is really nice and friendly. I have an upper classman friend who makes sure that everything is going smoothly and will always help me with something if I need it. There are definitely the jocks and it is easy to tell who they are sometimes since the school is medium sized - they are the ones who are always in their athletic clothing. My friends who are girls don't really start drama or want to have anything to do with it.

Guys & Girls: I haven't really had time for dating but there are attractive members of both sexes.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

After graduating high school, students are eager to go to college and hope to meet new friends and develop a romantic relationship. Many of these girls are disappointed when they come to find out that they outnumber boys and that the guys that do exist are either gay or in a relationship. With that being said, there are still opportunities to meet some cute and intelligent Ithaca College guys. Random hookups at house parties are prevalent, but there are definitely opportunities to develop a more intimate relationship. Many are attracted to Ithaca College because of the openness of sexual orientation, and students enjoy this atmosphere when they arrive. 

One saying heard around campus is, “Ithaca to bed, Cornell to wed.” Many feel that while some Cornell students have more brains, the students at Ithaca have the upper hand when it comes to looks. While each guy and girl at IC doesn’t take your breath away (and sometimes it’s hard to get a good look at people through all of the winter clothes), there are definitely those who make you want to stop and stare. It's an added bonus that Cornell is so close because it gives Ithaca College students the opportunity to socialize with both Ithaca and Cornell students.

Social Scene
Like anywhere, IC has many different varieties of people. From the extreme introvert to the life-of-every-party guy, any kind of person can be seen on campus. Most students are rather outgoing, and with only about 6,000 students, it's hard to go anywhere without running into someone you know. On the weekends, students do anything from watch movies, shop, ice skate, play a game of football, or hang out in a bar or club. Sometimes, instead of getting dressed up, going out, and getting drunk, nothing is more fun than a movie night with some of your closest friends.
Hookups or Relationships?
There are both hookups and relationships at IC. On Monday mornings, you can hear people talking about their weekend one-night stands, and then you'll see two seniors holding hands who've been together since freshman year. It seems that there are two extremes on campus: random hookups and serious dating. There's not a lot of casual dating, but most long-term relationships happen with someone who's not an IC student. Most students who are engaged or thinking about getting engaged are dating someone from home or from another school.
Dress Code
From pajama pants and sweats to skirts and khakis, anything is acceptable in class. The earlier or later the class, the more comfortable the clothing gets. At Ithaca, there are the typical Abercrombie & Fitch and Gap guys and girls, and then there are the people who choose to wear only black. Unless someone wears something totally outrageous, most people don't even give that student a second look. One piece of clothing that has a place in everyone's closet: an IC hooded sweatshirt.
