    Ithaca College is expensive, but so are most private colleges. It is, what it is. The restaurants in town are tremendous. Ithaca is also a College Town. IC, Cornell, and a community college in the area, and there ends up being around 30,000 college students inhabiting this little town. So many places stay open late. There is also the TCAT, which is a bus that helps make transportation easier. Finally, there is also a regional airport located in Ithaca, which is definitely convenient.

    Ithaca is definitely expensive, and while I love my experience so far and think it is worth a substantial amount, I don't think tuition to any college should be upwards of $50,000. I receive an annual merit scholarship which helps a lot with the cost, but make sure you're aware of the cost. I do think that you get the most out of what you pay, however.

    Everything you get from the school such as the equipment we get to use and the food and the quality of professors definitely reflects that the tuition and fees is quite high but definitely worth the price you pay.

    You're paying for education. It's very good, the professors care and interact with you. The classes keep my attention.
