Known for

Safe campus
Access to outdoor activities
LGBTQ+ friendly
Accessible and helpful professors
Lots of interesting clubs and activities



It has its downside and some programs I wouldn't recommend. However, the communications school is one of the best and there are tons of opportunities for resume building and experiential learning.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

We can't live off campus until our senior year which is expensive

I personally love the history department. I have not had a bad class yet, and all of the professors and advisors are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food can be a bit rough, especially if you are used to home-cooked meals. However, there are many options and can avoid what you don't like.

Working at the student-run newspaper, The Ithacan, was probably my favorite part of Ithaca College. I made some of my closest friends there. The Park School of Communications is one of the best in the country, and I felt like it really prepared me for the real world. Being from Northern New Jersey, I also liked the proximity to home.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The cost is pretty outrageous. There's also a lack of transparency that I wasn't as aware of as a student but came to be more aware of in my time away from the college.

Sebastian Hunt
Movies And Film



The campus is pretty enough, and easy to get around, but Ithaca is definitely kind of in the middle of nowhere and isn’t convenient to major cities. So, the positive is there is a quiet, nature-y vibe.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Cafeteria food not good, dorms old, buildings kinda 70s/80s, cold, lots of rain/snow.
