Earlier this week, Ithaca College became the latest institution to respond to a reported “clown sighting,” when a caller notified the Office of Public Safety of a social media posting regarding a clown allegedly being seen near the Athletics & Events Center. Officers checked the area and did not find anything suspicious.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind the campus community that the Office of Public Safety takes all reports of suspicious persons or activities very seriously. At the same time, however, we ask the community not to be part of the hysteria surrounding the clown sighting phenomenon that seems to be sweeping the country.
