Jumpstart offers new students a chance to explore the local community, learn about resources on campus, and meet new friends before Orientation begins. Ithaca College is offering 14 Jumpstart programs on a variety of topics on Monday, August 15. Click here to read about each program and its distinct focus, then apply by July 1!  There is no cost for new first-year and transfer students to participate in this program, but there is an application process and you must be accepted into the program to participate. All accepted Jumpstart participants will get to move in to their residence hall rooms on Sunday, August 14!
