Colleges in Ithaca, NY
A Thriving Educational Community
Ithaca, NY is carved by gorges and waterfalls, but it's shaped by its educational institutions, Cornell University, Ithaca College, and Tompkins-Cortland Community College (TC3), which is just down the road from Ithaca in Dryden, NY. These schools fuel the city's rich cultural scene and foster its creative spirit. Combined, the schools bring over 30,000 students into the community each fall, and with them, PhDs in every field from astrophysics to zoology. The brainpower makes Ithaca a fun-loving, worldly, connected city, and turns the beautiful campuses on East Hill and South Hill into international destinations in their own right.
