November means snow and Thanksgiving to many IC students, but for the anthropology department, it's Native American Celebration Month at Ithaca College. For years the department has used the month as an opportunity to embrace and celebrate the rich culture of the Haudenosaunee, also known as the Iroquois Confederacy.

"Achieving Carbon Neutrality: It Is Our Choices That Show What We Truly Are, Far More Than Our Abilities"
Ithaca College has signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), a pledge to produce a plan by September 2009 for the campus to go "carbon neutral" by completely mitigating our greenhouse gas emissions.
Signed by 582 colleges and universities across the country, the pledge commits us to model ways to eliminate global warming emissions and provide the knowledge and the educated graduates to achieve climate neutrality.
