So far, I'm having a blast at Ithaca College! My overall classes have been interesting and engaging, with good professors. The campus is gorgeous, as well as the surrounding town is cute and has so much to do. The living spaces are good, with many different options. One of the biggest improvements needed is the campus food; there needs to be better quality and more available spaces to get healthy foods. Otherwise, I'm having a great time!

I absolutely love Ithaca College for so many reasons! The college has so much to offer especially to undergraduate students so you are getting experience in your major day 1 on of class. The professors there are amazing and I have yet to have one that has not made a positive impact on me. There is always activities and events going on on campus so there is never a dull moment at Ithaca College. Overall, it is an amazing school and anyone who attends will not be disappointed.
Ithaca College is a pretty good school! It is a diverse, accepting environment with faculty who want to see their students succeed. I have definitely felt challenged at times by my professors while here, but have not seemed to be challenged quite enough. The dorms are pretty great if you live in Towers or Upper Quads your freshman year, and the food is not terrible, especially compared to what I've heard from friends that go to other schools. The parties are terrible, though and pretty much always get busted before 12, and Moonies gets really boring after a while and closes too early.
