Alumni Perspective

"I am grateful to have had the opportunity to study at Ithaca College in the Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences. The experiences I had interacting with faculty, staff, and classmates were memorable and continue to expand even after graduation. The department along with my general feel for the college is a strong-bonded community that takes learning and growth seriously. As a result of my experience at Ithaca College, I feel well-prepared for my life-long journey. I would like to thank my professors for leading inspiring classes and taking the time to get to know their students outside of the classroom."
