Save the Date! Sunday, May 23, 2010 - Ithaca College’s 115th Commencement will be here before we know it. Every year the wonderful staff at Ithaca College assist with a variety of activities on Commencement Day. Information will be coming in the weeks ahead on how to participate as a volunteer at Commencement as our 2010 graduation class celebrate this day with family and friends. The assistance you will provide is vital as many guests are not familiar with the College, its facilities and their location. Assignments such as program distribution, answering questions, giving directions, and simply being helpful are all tasks that require staff assistance. You will be trained and non-exempt employees will be compensated for their time.

Jot the date down.  Sunday, May 23rd!

Are you thinking of hiring a photographer for your next event?  Consider these tips for how to make your photographs count.

·Don’t skip the photographs in the interest of saving money.  They may be very useful for publicity purposes at a later date, or for annual reports, newsletters and releases, etc.

·Think about what photographs you need in advance.  For many events it is possible to hire a photographer for an hour or two to get the shots you need.  It is often not necessary for the photographer to stay for the whole event.  Keep in mind that a photographer can be present at an event for an hour or and deliver photos that make it look like s/he were there the whole time.  Not so with video.

·Be very specific about what shots you need and in what format (digital, prints, etc.) you need them.
