Benefits include the opportunity for retirees to take college classes.

Ithaca College’s partnership with Longview, a local retirement and assisted living facility, was recently highlighted in a story on MSN Money. The piece touted the benefits of such partnerships, where residents of retirement communities can take college courses and can benefit from college students working and volunteering alongside them. The writer also acknowledges that attitudes have shifted toward thinking of education as a lifelong pursuit, which has resulted in a multi-generational student body.

Ithaca College was designated as an Age-Friendly University last year, joining a network of 50 peer institutions that have proven commitments to being age-friendly in their programs and policies.
