Networking is so important. I know I am not alone when I say that I am lonely and bored. The town itself has very little to do besides The commons (a shopping/restaurant center), the mall (a pretty limited one) and Wegmans (an overrated grocery everyone seems to go crazy over). Ithaca lives in the shadow of Cornell, a school lucky to have a lively campus which is nearly a town of its own. The weekends consist of freshman (and upperclassmen with cars) walking miles to off-campus parties that get busted by 1 am. Unfortunately, theres not a lot to do if you dont like to party. Also, if you are from a city or are accustomed to being in one, like myself, you will find yourself getting bored very quickly. Its slow paced. Its a town 'in the sticks'. If you are from a rural, residential area, you might think this place is a city. In the end, its all what you make of it. I am thinking about transferring. The school is a great place, but i havent found my groove here. The people are actually incredibly friendly. I havent met any really stuck up people thriving on daddy's money, its really quite laid back, but really very undiverse. White kids, sorta 'vanilla' if you get my drift. Unfortunately for me, i thrive off a city environment and expected this place to have meet more interesting people, have more of an eye-opening experience. Mainly, I expected a change, but Ithacas pretty basic. Advice for those who would like to stay here is to get involved and make the most of it. Its expensive.
