Welcome to Ithaca, NY!
Ithaca College (IC) was founded in 1892 by William Egbert as a conservatory of music. Originally located in downtown Ithaca, the College expanded and moved to its current South Hill campus in 1968 and now offers a blend of liberal arts education along with advanced degrees in the School of Music, Communications, Physical and Speech Therapies. More information is available at http://www.ithaca.edu. News footnote: U.S. News & World Report "America's Best Colleges" has ranked Ithaca College in the top ten of "Best Master's Universities by Region" for the eleventh year in a row (August 2007).
