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.
DON'T MISS OUT ON THE FUN IN THE BIG APPLE! There are only a few seats left on our summer bus trip to New York City.

Before taking the court, Bradley had learned a Russian phrase he knew would come in handy should the Soviets try to intimidate him. After a particularly rough exchange of elbows, Bradley pulled out his newly learned idiom, much to his opponents’ dismay.
