I love Ithaca College! It has been such an inclusive community and one that has embraced my learning and growing in my own personal identity. It also has helped me to understand and learn about other identities and how to become a more respectful member of society in general.
While Ithaca College boasts some outstanding features, such as a world-renowned communications school that houses a variety of excellent programs including film, journalism, and others, it boasts little else. The campus has some nice structures and amenities, but not much. The food service on the meal plan is awful, so be prepared to use those bomber bucks and your own money on the food offered at places on campus you'll have to pay for.
Ithaca College is a great school to attend, the professors are very helpful and there's always something going on, on campus. Since it is a liberal arts college, it is very diverse and most people are open to conversations about what is going on in the world today. You learn to appreciate different cultures and different opinions as well.
Ithaca College has become my home this last year. I haven't had one professor that I didn't love and I know that I have learned a lot from them. There are so many things to be involved in and I'm grateful for the connections I have made here already! Truly a place I love and appreciate.

College is what you make it. Those who complain the msot about college are usually the ones who don't persue their dreams hard enough. Meet as many new people as you can, join at least one club, and have fun. Work hard, play hard usually works for most people.
My classmates are motivated individuals who seek sucess in the professional world.
Not Many "Plastics"
The school is a good size. Nobody knows much about Ithaca when I go for job interviews so it isn't very helpful. College town blows because Cornell kids are doushe bags. Recently there has been a lot of rapes and administration has done nothing in response.
Most professors know you by name. Studying gets done as much as you choose to do so. Class participation is expected except by those professors who would rather listen to themselves speak. Most classes are trying to help you get a job except for a couple taught by Stephen Mosher which are geared towards making the students actually think outside the box.
Mens Rugby is still in the process of being formed and consists of people who love to hit people rather than people who love to get drunk and sing songs. Athletic events blow. If you're awake at 2 AM on a Tuesday you must be ripping rails because nobody does that unless they're an alcoholic or studying. Cortaca is the only fun event all year and even that sucks ass. Parties are every thursday-saturday. There are no frats or sororities. I have no idea what to do if your not drinking on a saturday night. The gorges are fun to go to.
The professors are always available and eager to asist their students.
The theatre, music, and film schools are amazing. The surrounding area is absolutely beautiful, even if it's really cold. Rod Serling went to our school, so we have the entire Twilight Zone series in our library. Most of my classes have maybe 12 people in them, and even big lecture classes have less than 100. If I wanted to, I could ask any of my professors out to coffee and they'd say yes. Kerry Butler went to Ithaca.
The best thing about Ithaca is the opportunities available -if you participate, study, and get ahold of what is there you will go far.
The communications programs, Physical theraphy programs, Theater programs, and music school programs. All of these schools have extremely well known reputations, great facilities, and excellent falculty.
An environmentally friendly and accepting haven away from the hustle of the city, Ithaca College is geared towards students that want more than just academics, but a life experience.
I have not been here very long, so I do not have an expert opinion on what works well and what does not. If I had to guess, I would say classes reach maximum capacity quickly, and a lot of people seem to have complaints about that.
Closed minded people who aren't open to new ideas. Ithaca College tends to be on the liberal edge when it comes to new ideas and concepts so people who are resistant to change might feel uncomfortable here.
Though the area Ithaca College is located in is great, there isn't anywhere close by if you want a change of scene. The town of Ithaca and near by Cornell are eccentric, interesting communities, but there are no large cities near by if you want exposure to a more metropolitan area.
Anyone who's interested in anything from music to business to science to communications and cinema arts. Very liberal leaning, and lots of partying.
The only regret I have about making my decision to come to Ithaca is the amount of money I have paid to get here, but I'm sure I've been reimbursed in valuable experience. I wish I had known more about the musical opportunities in the community so I could have become involved sooner, but the extra practice time was much needed, I'm sure. Otherwise, I expected nothing less of the college and having lived an hour from the campus for my entire childhood, I was prepared for the long, cold winter.
Emerson freshman and sophomore dorm.
It was basically down to financial aid and although the other school I was torn with was going to be drastically cheaper, I knew that I would be happier here. I wanted a change in environment and I definitely landed in almost the opposite end of the spectrum coming from the city. Visiting Ithaca also helped me decide. I hate to be cliche but Ithaca really is gorges.
Many stereotypes of students at Ithaca include hipsters and stoners. This is false. There are actually a lot more athletic students than any other stereotype. That being said, Ithaca is pretty diverse stereotype wise. There are a bunch of jocks, theater junkies, geeks, etc. Everybody kind of has a place.
