"Longview’s close connection with Ithaca College inspires me to be a lifelong learner – and teacher – all at the same time. Whether I’m enrolled in a class at IC or part of an intergenerational program at Longview, staying connected with young people creates energy, curiosity, and fun that’s unlike any other place I’ve lived."
"Since graduating from Cornell, I’ve lived and worked in Ithaca several times. Two of my children are here, so Longview is an ideal solution for me. My neighbors and the staff are so friendly and nice. I have a never-ending list of things to learn and do here."
"We’re planners. We carefully weighed our options and decided it didn’t make any sense to pay a big buy-in fee when a much more affordable, flexible rental at Longview was available. And we take comfort knowing enhanced care is available right here on campus if we ever need it."
