What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
It's honestly a great place to be if you're looking for a nice and simple environment. All resources are made available to students and the classes are small so students can receive a lot of attention from their teachers. Seeing how Ithaca College and the surrounding towns are really close, there are a lot of community service opportunities offered here as well.
Malika from Ridgewood, NY
It is a friendly and welcoming environment. It is very easy to get involved in different organizations and activities because they have so much to offer. The acacdemics are also great; the professors are there to help you every step of the way.
