Ithaca College, found on the South Hill of Ithaca, New York, is the place to be to prepare oneself for a career in film, media, or communications. Founded in 1892 as a music conservatory, Ithaca today offers its 6,700 students (known as the Bombers) over 100 concentrations of study, each centered upon a solid core of liberal arts education, across 5 distinct schools. Ithaca holds the distinction of having created the world’s first student-operated television channel (Ithaca College Television.) Over 150 on-campus clubs and organizations help make sure undergrads live a well-rounded experience here; and as a percentage of total attendance, Ithaca boasts one of the largest intramural participation rates in the country. A list of notable alumni would almost be too long to cite here, but includes musician Gavin DeGraw, actor David Boreanaz, and screenwriter Allan Loeb. It doesn’t do everything, but what Ithaca does, it does with unparalleled heart and passion!
