A Special Thank You!

Contributed by Brian McAree on 05/27/2010 

As the chairperson of the Ithaca College Commencement Committee, I would like to thank each and every IC community member – staff, faculty and students - who played a part in this year’s Commencement. The weather held up, although it looked questionable at times on Sunday morning. The campus and grounds looked beautiful, the ceremonies, programs, and events were well organized and very moving, the food at the receptions was wonderful, the Commencement Eve Concert and fireworks were spectacular, and Sunday’s Ceremony was so memorable for our graduates, their parents, and their guests. The tremendous effort from the entire community does not go unnoticed. Thank you again, enjoy the summer months, and I look forward to working with you again for next year’s 116th Commencement!
