Major: History/Histories (art history/etc.) (This Major's Salary over time)
I transferred from Hartwick College to here.

I really like a lot of things about this school. The size is just right. It's small enough so that I don't feel like a number, and big enough that I don't see the same people everyday. Classes are pretty good and my professors are pretty good. Note: stay away from Carolyn Straughn if you aren't a feminist. I haven't been challenged, but you can't be totally lazy and do well here. In other words, it's easy to keep a 3.0 with minimal effort, but a 3.5 is some real work. Dining services are fine, I recommend the cafe and not the dining halls, except for Terraces. There are plenty of clubs, but not that many interesting ones and the ones that are interesting are during the same time periods. I can't speak for Park or Music students, but Art History is pretty engaging and there is plenty of oppurtunity to hone in on specific topics that you might like, especially in Jennifer Jolly's classes. Another department that I've enjoyed is English. Right now I'm taking Shakespeare with Wendy Hyman and enjoy it. A lot of people are really engaged in discussion, although some people dominate, but that's the case with many classes.

Ithaca is a nice, small city (I think it's a city) with an average mall and a nice common area. Shopping is pretty plentiful and so are other fun things. Dining is EXCELLENT. I reccomend Madeline's or Rene's, although they are a a bit pricy.

Being a transfer student, Ithaca has a very good policy on AP's (3 or better, although sometimes a 3 only gets you elective credit) and I transferred in with 73.3 credits after only a year of college and some AP's and high school college classes.

This rose does has its thorns though. It's difficult to make friends, and organizations don't do much to change that. Live on campus, it's much easier to make friends. I live off campus and so I can't comment on dorms. Another thing is that the weather is horrible. It snows a lot and nice weather lasted until about Novemember. If you like warm climates don't come here. In the warm weather Ithaca is truly beautiful. It's also very pricy if you don't qualify for the Ithaca Acess Grant, and being a minority helps, as the ALANA scholarship I got pays 7k per year, pending a 3.0 GPA.

I would recommend Ithaca to anyone who is a) in one of the strong majors, b) wants to live in a liberal enviornment, and c) doesn't mind the cold weather.
