College Planning Guide



Apply for Fall Admission by February 1

Choosing Ithaca College is one of the smartest investments you’ll ever make. Here are three reasons why:

1. No matter what your major, Ithaca’s rich internship, research, and fieldwork opportunities will pump up your resume before you graduate.

From performing at Lincoln Center to hunting for ancient cities in Cyprus to managing real funds as a core trading consultant, you can expect to get valuable, resume-building, real-world experience at Ithaca.

Take Roy Kwankam ’09, for example. Ithaca helped him find internships at JPMorgan Suisse and the World Intellectual Property Organization, a branch of the United Nations, where he received on-the-job training as an analyst!

2. At Ithaca, you’ll work one-on-one with faculty, collaborating on projects that will allow you to experience firsthand what you’ve learned.

Ithaca's faculty-student ratio is a remarkably low 12 to 1. And our faculty take pride in mentoring their students.

“At Ithaca it’s possible to have a close working relationship with all your professors -- an advantage I do not take for granted and am very glad to have!” says Rebecca Zaremba ’10.

3. An Ithaca education pays off. Ninety-seven percent of IC students find jobs or enter graduate school within one year of graduating. 

“I came to Ithaca College with a dream of going into television,” says Robert A. Iger, president and CEO of Disney, “and I clearly chose the right school, because I left well prepared to pursue that dream, and wanting it even more.”
