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?
We feel that your choice about where to spend the next four years studying music is extremely important. Why not get a first-hand experience so you know if Ithaca College is right for you?
What if I'm also interested in participating in the Ithaca Today program?
Not a problem. If you are planning to participate in the Ithaca Today program on April 13, we recommend that you arrive on April 12 for the Dean's Host program. If you are participating in the Ithaca Today program on April 14, we recommend that you stay until April 15 for the Dean's Host program. Spaces are limited for this option and requests must be received by April 1.
