    Food is surprisingly good at Ithaca. Sometimes, it looks like it is gross but if you try it it ends up tasting pretty decent. Some dining halls are definitely better than others, and sometimes it does feel like you are eating the same type of thing all the time.

    The dining hall itself isn't always the best food but with the Bonus Bucks option you are given there is a lot of variety at the Pub or sub connect or Sandellas for great food outside of the dining hall,

    This also depends on which dining hall you go to, but overall, the food is good.

    There are three major dinning halls which offer different meals every night as well as outside places to order food.

    I like how accessible the food is. There's always food options to choose from. The best Dinning Hall is The Terraces, always been there never complained about the food. Also has vegan and kosher options.

    The food is pretty good, but there isn't a lot of variety within the dining halls. After a few months I got bored of it just because the choices don't change a lot.

    The dinning halls at IC are not my personal favorites, and I have been to a lot of college campuses. There are a few cafes and a convenience stores on campus and a little market place that are extremely tasty. As for the dining halls, although they are not the best, they do offer a lot of variety. There are a ton of vegan and vegetarian options, in my opinion, especially for a small college campus. Most people prefer the Terrace Dinning Hall. I would have to agree with them, and also state weekend brunch at Terrace's never disappoints.

    There is not much Greek Life on campus but our neighboring Cornell university offers Greek Life. Ithaca students are welcomed to join.

    Ithaca College does not have traditional sororities and frats, but it doesn't make the college any less fun. They do however have alternative frats and sororities that are welcoming to everyone and do not practice hazing.

    The only Greek Life would be a couple music and professional fraternities. Cornell has a bunch of frats and it's not too far away. I heard they also let IC students in if they really want to be in a frat or sorority.

    It is a Division III school, so Greek Life is not huge. But there are a couple of music fraternities and sororities, one that I believe is even coed. There is also the opportunity to pledge at Cornell, which is located in the same town. A lot of my friends belong to a Jewish fraternity, AEPi.

    Almost non-existent (officially). The only school-sanctioned Greek organizations are the music organizations, Mu Phi Epsilon, Phi Mu Alpha, and Sigma Alpha Iota. There are plenty of unofficial ones who hold many events, but none of those groups are actually affiliated with the school. There are no Greek houses on IC's campus. Each music frat gets a floor of a Terrace. If you want Greek houses and parties, look to Cornell.

    There is no greek life. People go to one of the many near by colleges for parties, or the apartments close to campus. This isn't completely bad because you have to leave to go to parties, this is just another reason to stay in your room and do the work you owe.
