The first few weeks at Ithaca College are full of new experiences—including orientation, new classes, first-year residence hall programs, the student organization fair, and many others. These experiences are exciting, and students have many opportunities to explore. Not every student will admit it, but most will miss home, especially during the first few weeks.
"I was so wrapped up in getting to know my roommate, preparing for classes, and exploring the campus that I forgot to check in with my parents. I remember when they called me a week later (a little panicked) and feeling comforted that they were supporting me in my new life." —Helena Murphy '15
