    Fabulous Commencement!

    Contributed by Maura Stephens on 05/15/2006 

    Kudos to everyone who had anything to do with this year's Commencement. Sad as we may be to say farewell to the fabulous IC class of 2006, still we can be glad they had such a great day for celebrating their accomplishments and strengthening their connections to Ithaca. This was probably the most outstanding class I've known in my nine years here, and the Commencement ceremony and accompanying activities were terrific as well. I am always impressed by the professionalism and competence of my colleagues here at IC, who manage to make Herculean tasks seem easy. Congratulations to the graduates and to all the staff, faculty, and alumni volunteers who made their adieu go so smoothly.
