Ithaca College, founded in 1892, is a nationally recognized, private, residential college of approximately 5,000 undergraduate and 400 graduate students from 49 U.S states and territories and 40 countries. Ithaca’s academic programs in business, communications, health sciences and human performance, humanities and sciences, and music have earned reputations for excellence. Knowledge is a powerful thing, and it’s even better when it gets translated into action. With an average class size of 17, students learn from faculty who are accomplished scholars and passionate teachers.
Student-faculty collaboration is a hallmark of an Ithaca education, as students work side-by-side with their professors on everything from science research to music performances—experiences that make employers and graduate schools take notice.
Outside the classroom, there is a world of opportunity—literally. Study abroad in more than 50 countries on six continents. Participate in internships with film studios, congressional offices, health clinics, investment firms, or other organizations that match academic and extracurricular interests.
Ithaca’s campus community is small enough to be a close-knit community, but large enough to offer many exciting ways to get involved. Hundreds of concerts and recitals, dozens of theatre performances, and countless visits by noteworthy and newsworthy guests fill the events calendar. We have 27 NCAA Division III sports teams and 40 intramural and club sports. More than 200 student organizations provide opportunities to develop talents, hone leadership skills, and connect with like-minded classmates.
Ithaca College overlooks the city of Ithaca—an eclectic town of 47,000 known for its creative atmosphere, its abundance of outdoor opportunities, and its consistent presence on best-college-town and most-livable-city lists. The city of Ithaca is a thriving, culturally diverse community that combines small-town warmth and charm with big-city arts and entertainment. Home to both Ithaca College and Cornell University, the area attracts visitors, students, artists, and scholars from around the globe. You’ll discover that Ithaca can be a special home away from home, offering city sophistication and advantages surrounded by natural beauty.
