Why I chose Johnson

After being in NYC for seven years, I was really looking for a change of pace. I wanted a school with a smaller class size and a collaborative community made of hard-working, down-to-earth people. Johnson provided everything I was looking for. I feel like I have a voice in the classroom and receive the attention I need while also learning great perspectives from fellow classmates.

Ithaca provides a great natural setting that includes Cascadilla Gorge near campus and fun activities such as enjoying Finger Lakes Wine Country complete with both wineries and distilleries along Cayuga Lake.
