Mike Potter ’07 had one main goal when he graduated from Ithaca College: start his own company by age 25. He has done that and so much more. Potter came into IC as a Park Scholar majoring in television-radio, but he graduated with majors in television-radio, computer information systems, and business administration. “I felt it was so unique—my ability to take a class in park, my next class in the computer science department, and my following class in the business school,” he says.
