Have you heard or witnessed microaggressive behavior while on the court, on the field, or in the locker room? Athlete Ally, a student organization, has taken a stand to fight against homophobia and transphobia in the athletic communities here on the Ithaca College campus. According to President Chris Kelley, "[Athlete Ally] strives to build a culture of tolerance throughout the Ithaca community.” This student organization started when former president, Kyle James (current secretary & treasurer) heard about the national organization from a tweet by a professional football player. As James was struck with inspiration from his own personal experiences with this topic, he reached out to the founder of Athlete Ally. The founder encouraged James to start a collegiate chapter. With hard work and dedication, Ithaca College founded the first student-run chapter of Athlete Ally.

The crystal structure of 1-butyl-2,3-dimethylimidazolium dicarba-7,8-nido-undecaborate was  published in specialized crystallographic journal.  The structure was solved using Ithaca College’s single crystal X-ray diffractometer facilities. This is  the FOURTH publication  which includes the crystallographic data collected on the single crystal X-ray diffractometer since it was purchased by IC Chemistry department in 2013.  The compound was synthesized in Anna Larsens' laboratory and crystal sample was prepared by Lars Sodertsrom and Max Klemes.
