Celebrate the Art of Service

Contributed by Deborah Mohlenhoff on 04/15/2007 

Please join us for the annual Celebration of Service this Friday, April 20th. Once again, we will come together as a community to celebrate the many wonderful works of service that Ithaca College faculty, staff, and students performed this year.

This year we have chosen the theme "The Art of Service." In thinking about how to celebrate the amazing “works of art” we have all performed through our service this year, we’ve decided to invite you to come explore the exclusive gallery of service – to see visual representations of what service means to Ithaca College faculty, staff, and students.

Emerson Suite A will be transformed into this special Art Gallery - we will open the curtains officially at 10am. Also - please join us for the official unveiling of the final masterpiece at the awards ceremony at 4pm.

For a detailed schedule of events, please visit:

This Friday, we will once again be hosting the annual Celebration of Service. We're looking for any student, faculty, or staff volunteers willing to serve at one of our exciting mini-service stations.
