IC Progressives has launched a movement to channel Ithaca College's interests into more environmentally friendly energy. With much of Ithaca College's energies coming from fossil fuels, IC Progressives has sparked conversations including one with sophomore Mike Hanlon last week in the IC Library where he encouraged a small group of seniors to embrace the movement. This is a big step forward in better energy use by our community, thanks to IC Progressives!

Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most important cultural events in the United States. It is such a big event that did you know roughly 28,000,000 pounds of chips, 1.25 billion chicken wings, and 8,000,000 pounds of guacamole are consumed during the Super Bowl. IC After Dark's screening of the Super Bowl last Sunday was just as big as the event itself. There were many students who cheered and roared for their favorite team. A big thanks to IC After Dark and its E-Board, members, and team for putting on an excellent event!

The Ithaca College Contingent Faculty, including full-time and part-time faculty, have authorized labor actions up to and including a strike. The authorization vote came last week, after 18 months of bargaining failed to persuade the Ithaca College administration to commit to the fundamental labor principles of “pay parity” and “equal pay for equal work.” The faculty members facing contingent work conditions, amounting to almost half of the current number of faculty at Ithaca College, held a rally on Monday, Feb 20th at the main entrance of IC campus. The rally preceded two days of scheduled mediation with the College administration and demonstrated the group’s collective power as well as public support for their insistent struggle to secure fair working and living conditions.
