IC Students at Beijing Olympics
More students from IC than any other U.S. school worked at the Olympics.
IC had three groups of students involved with the Beijing Olympics this summer. Eleven Park students worked in China and six in New York City as NBC interns; Park is one of only six institutions in the country to be included in NBC’s internship program. And 20 students from HSHP were in China as interns with the official Olympics News Service, hosted by Beijing Sport University. That’s 37 IC students — more than any other higher education institution in the country!
Although they all worked hard and had little free time, they agreed to record their experiences to share with the rest of us. Look for their blogs and photo galleries at ithaca.edu/olympics08.
