A new semester is approaching and many students have registered to attend college here this coming year. Ithaca is a thriving, vibrant and active community with a fantastic mix of college students, families and young professionals.
Cornell University students are very involved in college activities and community interests. The area boasts many well-known shops, restaurants, art galleries and museums. And lest we forget, the outdoor activities year round are superb. No matter what activities you enjoy, Ithaca has something just for you.
Living Off Campus
Returning students and upper classmen have notoriously found dorm living to be difficult at best. With the new semester here shortly, perhaps this would be the perfect time to be looking for affordable apartment rentals in Ithaca near Collegetown.
It is well known that dorm living (living on campus) has many pitfalls and costs. Although it may seem the easier way to go and be able to roll all your necessities into one price, if you are using student loans, the final price tag tends to be quite expensive.
Cornell University students find that opting to live off campus has many benefits. Ithaca Collegetown apartment rentals fulfill the needs of many people moving into the area. This may be your first opportunity to branch out on your own and enjoy a new found independence. When you live off campus, you quickly become part of a different community that enhances your college experience and leads you into adult life gently.
Living off campus provides you with safe and quieter accommodations, more space, privacy (no more sharing a tiny dorm room), ability to live alone or to actually choose friends that will get along. There are no curfews and food options become so much wider. Yes, you do need to grocery shop and cook your own meals, but consider the options. Surely you've become tired of the cafeteria or dining hall choices. Not much like your mother's, is it?
