Beating the Winter Weather Blahs

Written by Lauren Hesse

The Towers offer warm refuge on winter nights.

You may have heard by now that Ithaca gets cold. We get it, it snows in the northeast! But you have no reason to worry--Ithaca College has plenty of spots to stay warm all over campus. From cozy fireplaces to hot drinks, we’ve rounded up the best places to study, meet with friends and beat the winter blues.

  • The Peggy R. Williams building houses many offices on campus including admissions, but did you know that it's also a great spot to stay warm? With overstuffed couches, a gas fireplace, and floor to ceiling windows perfect for watching the snow, this area is a great place to embrace the winter weather.

  • IC Square, or "the pub" as we like to call it, is a great place to have lunch, study, and meet with friends.The best part is that the cafe and cafeteria style dining areas serve piping hot Starbucks drinks, pizzas, flatbread sandwiches, and other warm treats.

  • The TC Lounge atop East Tower is a chic atmosphere where students can get gourmet coffee and desserts. Not only can you sample yummy treats, but the TC Lounge also offers what we think is the best view of Lake Cayuga.

  • The Library isn’t just for studying. Try keeping warm by cuddling up in a comfy chair, using campus Wi-fi and relaxing.

  • Lounges are located in all dorm buildings, as well as the Garden Apartments and the Circles. There are different areas for studying, watching TV, and even laundry, so you don’t even have to leave your building!

  • The music school is filled with glorious melodies and great places to study. Pull up a chair, watch the snow, and listen to the best tunes in town.
