I came with my daughter for a tour and informational lecture. It seems odd to rate a university, let alone an Ivy League one but here goes. We actually only came because we were in the area. Ithaca with the winters and snow was not...More

Recently visited for a Wedding in Sage Chapel. It was beautiful even though it was a hot day. Toured campus and got to see a great deal. Walked over the gorge. Saw Ithaca Falls.

OK, I was here because my daughter goes to grad school here, but the campus is lovely, on a hill, with a mix of older buildings and new ones. Bell tower, quad, all the things that make a nice campus.

A must see when near Ithaca. Make sure to stop to see the gorge and waterfall at the visitor center. Expect a lot of construction in the summer months.
