Submitted on behalf of Robert Sullivan, Associate Professor/Chair, Communication Studies and Faculty in Residence, Center for Faculty Excellence:

As part of Ithaca College’s commitment to undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity, support will be provided for approximately 40 student scholars at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) to be held April 7-9, 2016 at the University of North Carolina, Asheville. Transportation, hotel accommodations and registration for the conference will be paid by the College. Students presenting at NCUR are expected to pay only for personal purchases.

Who can apply? Any undergraduate student in any program can apply to present their work. Virtually every discipline is represented at NCUR. Students can also present work that is created in an interdisciplinary posture. Please note, however, that support can typically only be given to one student for work that was prepared with multiple authors. Creative activity, such as musical or theatrical performance, or other work in the fine arts, is also welcome.

Kudos to Students Today Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) for working with the IC Alumni Association to put on a fabulous series of Alumni Weekend events this past weekend!  Events included a class reunion party, the Homecoming game vs. Alfred, the athletic hall of fame induction ceremony, a picnic on Saturday, and a special dinner featuring the 2015 alumni award winners.  Thanks for bringing so many alumni back to campus to celebrate!

This past Saturday, the Ithaca College Chapter of the American Advertising Federation held their 12th biannual Creative Crunch competition.  Teams of 2-4 students had just 2 hours to design 2 print ads and a 3rd ad of their choice for a mystery brand.  All students who participated gained valuable skills in advertising and communications as well as some great alumni networking opportunities. In fact, the judges of the competition were some of our own IC alumni!

Stop Wasting Ithaca's Food Today, also known as SWIFT, is one of the hidden gems of Ithaca College's student organizations. SWIFT ensures that IC dining halls' excess food does not go unused. Every Friday at 4PM, SWIFT members congregate in Towers Dining Hall to take leftover food and save it for future use. The student organization's adviser, Towers Dining Hall service manager Brandon Innerst, takes an active role in the organization by helping students with packaging and storage materials. Every week, SWIFT ends up distributing anywhere between 20-60 meals by bringing them to Rescue Mission in the Ithaca Commons.

Protect Your Family from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Often called the invisible killer, carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide.

With the cold season approaching, it’s a good time to review some important safety and prevention tips regarding Carbon Monoxide (CO).
