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!
