Why did you choose Ithaca College?

When I was looking at colleges, Ithaca College was the first college I toured, first college I applied to, first college I got accepted to, and first college that gave me my financial aid package. So, it was like Ithaca College really wanted me. When I stepped foot onto the Ithaca College campus, I felt accepted. Unlike other colleges, no one was as excited as the Ithaca College staff about the school. Ithaca is such a beautiful place to be a part of, and I couldn’t give up this opportunity. It was close enough for me to go home but far enough away to start my own life. I am so glad I made this decision because Ithaca College transformed me into the person I am today.
