school is certainly fun, but it can not be for
some people. If your close-minded or straight edge, this may
not be the place. But if your just the average
kid who wants to go to a decent college and
have fun, its for you.
social- if you want to
to party, theres always a party. they are easy to
find out about and get into. there are so many
options- off and on campus in walking distance, and cornell
is so accessible. its nice to not have to deal
with greek life on campus but to be able to
go to their parties. older kids go to collegetown bars
on wednesday nights and thursday night parties are common. if
you like to smoke weed, go here. theres also plenty
of concerts and live music here.
education- some classes are
hard, some really easy. it depends on the level and
amount of kids in a class. i have some classes
with 80 plus, yet some classes with only ten. The
mix is pleasant because it offers some variety and a
break if you need it for a content heavy courseload.
some majors are certainly harder than others. communications and health
sciences are great programs. professors very willing to help.
downtown ithaca is a cute, liberal little town. coverd in
coffee shops, tatto parlors, and places to get burritos. Some
excellent restuaraunts and bars for if you want to get
out. the views are gorgeous int he spring and summer.
food- mediocre at best. late night delivery makes up for
people- many people from long island or the city.
some hipsters and princesses. very open gay popuation. most people
just normal, willing to talk and esp. party with you.
not too cliquey but a variety of personalities mesh here. think dumb jocks + alternative indie rockers.
