James Mica, a Research Specialist in the Office of Admissions, will give a presentation at Longview about the origin, evolution and historical usage of one of the most widely recognized expressions in the American English language. 

Jim, who has 'an abiding interest in etymology’ will trace “OK” back to its earliest appearance in print in 1839 and follow its use politically and historically in the United States, as well as give examples of similar foreign phrases.

This presentation will take place on Monday, July 29th at 7:00 PM in the auditorium at Longview.

Anyone from the campus community who is interested in attending this presentation should contact Christine Pogorzala, the Ithaca College/Longview Coordinator, for directions and information on parking at 274-1051 or pogorzal@ithaca.edu.
