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.

In addressing some 1,380 graduates and their guests at Ithaca College’s 111th commencement, Bill Bradley—a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame and former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate—recalled going up against the Soviet Union in the finals of the 1964 Olympic games. 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.
