Submitted on behalf of the Faculty/Staff Campaign Committee

We invite you to share your pride in Ithaca College with the entire campus community. We're putting together a list (à la the Late Show with David Letterman) of the "Top 10 Reasons We Love Working at IC," and we welcome your thoughts—from the poignant to the hilarious—about why IC is a great place to earn a paycheck.

All entries submitted before Monday, September 24, will be included in a drawing for prizes, among them lunch at the Tower Club. We’ll award prizes and announce the top 10 list at a Faculty/Staff Campaign event on Thursday, October 4, at 9:00 a.m. in the Emerson Suites.

Submit as many entries as you like, by e-mail to For more information about the Faculty/Staff Campaign and the Faculty/Staff Endowed Scholarship, please visit and bookmark our brand-new website. Contest entries will be published periodically on the site, along with photos of the contestants.

So get your creative juices flowing and let us know what motivates you to come to work each morning.
