Major: Other (This Major's Salary over time)
Whether you have chosen a major or you are undecided, Ithaca has something to offer from the beginning. The five schools within the college carry a wide variety of majors and practical experience, while the "Exploratory" program for non-majors assists students in developing their interests and liberal arts background.

Although Ithaca is better known for its Communications, Music, and Health Science programs, with the school's commitment to equalize spending and conideration given to each department, I believe that Ithaca College is a school that is rapidly gaining recognition and prestige overall.

Ithaca not only emphasizes the importance of classroom education, but also practical, hands on experience. The school keeps in close contact with its alumni so that current students have accessible networks to find internships and employment.

What sold me on Ithaca was the newly offered Writing Major which not only includes creative poetry and fiction writing, but also more practical concentrations in persuaive arguement, magazine writing, and essays.

However, the privelages that the college offers are often over-shadowed by the unpleasant winters we have up here. The permanently gray skies and bitter coldness can make getting through the semesters a challenge. The city itself has some nice bars, restaurants, and independent theatres, but it also carries a general strangeness.

But if you are willing to trade surroundings for a valuable education, Ithaca is a place to consider.
