Exploring Ithaca College Culture (1 credit)
A one credit course that immerses 18 students in Ithaca College academic, intellectual and cultural events and offers a forum for analyzing, sharing and building on their experiences, studying campus culture, defining the role of academics and the arts outside of the classroom in choosing majors, minors and co-curricular pursuits, and creating one’s own college education. Offered in the spring.
