The Dean’s Host program is a great opportunity for accepted students to experience life as an Ithaca College music student. Through this program, accepted students have the opportunity to:
- Stay overnight with a music student in your instrument or voice area
- Go to music classes and rehearsals during the day
- Sit in on a private lesson with our faculty
- Eat in the dining halls
- Watch concerts at night
When does the Dean’s Host take place?
Dean's Host takes place during any weekday in March and April.
How long will I be at Ithaca College?
Students usually arrive late in an afternoon, spend the night and most of the next day with their student host, and then leave later that day.
When should I sign up?
Try to give us two weeks notice so we can properly plan your visit.
Why should I sign up?
Dean's Host is a great way to experience what it is like to be a student at Ithaca College and in the School of Music, allowing you to make the most informed decision possible about where you would like to spend the next four years.
What if I'm also interested in participating in the Ithaca Today program?
- You are welcome to attend the Ithaca Today program in addition to the Dean's Host program. Please be aware that Ithaca Today is a college-wide open house.
- Accepted students who are looking for an in-depth experience in the School of Music are strongly encouraged to register for the Dean's Host program.
- Because the Dean's Host program occurs during the week, it is generally not possible to attend both Ithaca Today and the Dean's Host program during the same visit.
