December Reception for Graduates


Each year Ithaca College holds a reception for students graduating in December, which provides an opportunity for graduates, families, friends, and College representatives to celebrate the graduates’ success.

Celebrate the accomplishments of your December grads at a dessert reception scheduled for Saturday, December 10, 2016, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Emerson Suites of Phillips Hall.  Please join us in celebrating your graduate's accomplishments along with their families and friends. 

During the reception, a short program will include a welcome by president Thomas R. Rochon; remarks by the president of the senior class; an address by a distinguished professor, who is selected by our graduating students to speak; and concluding remarks by the executive director of alumni relations.  

The reception is a stand-up reception with a limited number of seats available for anyone attending who is handicapped or elderly.

Invitations for the December reception will be mailed to graduates and their parents in mid-November.  We hope you can join us for this celebration. 

The graduates will receive their diplomas in late February or early March.
