I grew up on the west coast andBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I grew up on the west coast and wanted to attend college "out east". Long-story short, I ended up at IC and love it. Sure the winters are long and cold, but I like my classes and teachers and have a made a lot of friends here, so it's all good.

I think that most students who write negative reviews on this site have issues they are working out, so venting on this site helps them sort it all out. I also think that most students who like IC don't take the time to write a good review because they're too busy studying and hanging out with their friends and getting involved. I am in my second year in the Business School and am glad I attend IC.

DISCLAIMER: Do not go here if you can'tBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
DISCLAIMER: Do not go here if you can't stand the cold! :)
I love love love this school. The majority of the people that go here love this school. We are an extremely open-minded campus- lgbt and trans* friendly! We do not have greek life here which I kind of like...the school isn't solely focused on its athletic superstars or fraternities. Its a huge community here and the absence of frats and sororities eliminates yet another way for the student body to create cliques. We have awesome concerts, comedy shows and events that go on every week.

You do not feel like a number here. You might have the same professor for several classes over the years and they really get to know you. It's a great way to get reccomendations for jobs before graduation. Professors for the most part are really captivating and fun, and the administration WILL know you by name. I'm about a B or B- student, sometimes C's so I'm not their top student, but the dean of the business school knows my name.

*Con: professors here LOVE group be prepared if you only like to work individually. Cornell is right next door. Seeing your friends post their frat/sorority pictures online makes you kinda wish you did the same thing at points... however at Cornell the frats and sororities throw AWESOME parties- i'm talking hot tubs and indoor beach parties, paint parties... you name it and they've done it. They also have big names come to their school and ithaca students can easily purchase tickets. At my time here at IC i've seen Maroon 5, MGMT, Taio Cruz, Flaming Lips and I'm about to go see Kendrick Lamar and Avicii.

Ithaca College is great.BrightPsychology
Ithaca College is great. Lots of very friendly people. The students are very diverse, and you can find every type of person here. Lot's of creative types. I spend many nights jamming with both music majors and non music majors (myself included). The only negative thing that comes to mind is the food. I often leave the dining halls not satisfied. Campus center is the worst and Terraces is the best, but still the food is not great. Plenty of delivery options, but that get's expensive very quickly. However there are food options like the Pub, Sub Connection, and the tc lounge that take the campus bonus bucks.
