The first annual IC Kicks Back celebration, with 1800 participants on the last day of classes, was an unbridled success. This celebration of the last day of classes was sponsored by IC After Dark and a number of other student organizations and campus offices.
The event was attended by 1800 students, faculty, and staff members who enjoyed food, prizes, carnival games, laser tag, mini golf, and music. Not even cold and rain-threatening weather could keep the Ithaca College community from celebrating the end of the semester in style.
Dining Services did a phenomenal job keeping those in attendance fed, even with a much larger than anticipated crowd. Prize-winning students carried home everything from a flat screen TV to Mardi Gras beads and teddy bears. Even our President Peggy Williams got into the act by taking a trip through the air filled entertainment venue, Pirates of the Caribbean. As you can see by the photograph, one of the highlights was a massive group performance of the Electric Slide.
For those who were there, thanks for making this a great celebration of all we've accomplished together this academic year. For those of you who missed it, you missed the start of a great new tradition.
Thanks to all the event sponsors:
