What our students say

 When asked why they chose Ithaca College over other programs, our students replied:

  • "I chose Ithaca because of the PT program being one of the best programs nationally, but an added bonus was the college being a perfect fit for me as well. It was that perfect "in-between size", not too big to get lost in, but not too small either. I was never let down, as the faculty and program were excellent, and the college experience was top-notch all around.” Lori (Mannato) Thornell, '96
  • "Because of the reputation of the program and the beautiful campus." Frank Aversano ’00, Valley Cottage, New York
  • "It came highly recommended with an excellent reputation." Khalidah Banks ’00, Anguilla, British West Indies
  • "The places where I volunteered said of all the students who did internships there, IC students were the best prepared." Melissa Thorp ’01, Williston Park, New York
  • "Because ... you get admitted to the program as a freshman." Nicole Petit '01, Gaithersburg, Maryland
  • "The PTs I talked to, both IC alums and not, highly recommended it." Kristen Hayek '01, Endicott, New York
  • "I'm a varsity athlete, but it was not basketball that brought me to Ithaca College; it was the physical therapy program. It led me to choose Ithaca College over other schools, a decision which I am definitely happy with!" Jennie Swatling ’04, varsity women's basketball guard, Strong, Maine
  • "I came to Ithaca College for physical therapy because it has an excellent reputation and I knew that it would provide a well-rounded education in PT as well as the other required subjects. The combined atmosphere of the friendly campus and the dedicated faculty were a great start to my first year at the school." Shana Weaver ’04, Boulder, Colorado
  • "The physical therapy department is so amazing here. It's hard to be anything other than exceptional." Laura Teeter '07, recipient of the 2007 Campus Life Award and the Peggy R. Williams Award for Academic and Community Leadership.
