    Contributed by Jamie Drahos on 06/20/2006 

    The 6:30 to 8:00 a.m. swimming session at the indoor pool has been canceled for the rest of the summer. Unfortunately it was not as well attended as we anticipated. The last morning session will be Tuesday, June 27.

    This is to remind you that on Thursday, June 22 at 1:00 p.m. in Williams 225 representatives from Moody Nolan will review the plans for the A&E center first, and then after a brief break and some refreshments, members of the HOLT team will present their concepts for the Gateway Building. Please join us to learn more about the plans for these exciting new additions to our campus.

    Many of you are currently making arrangements for staffing for fall opening. Some offices will need to bring their student workers back early to support opening operations. I have listed below the guidelines our office uses when processing early arrival requests. Please review them as you begin to plan.

    Summer! Great time to relax, research, and recharge. But wouldn't you like to come back in September with some training that will energize your students and enliven your teaching? Consider a four-and-a-half-day immersion course in integrating media analysis and production into any curriculum. This training is for teachers, technology/media specialists, librarians, community educators, and others interested in the field of media literacy, and as an IC faculty member, if there's still space available, you can take it free of charge!

    Monday, July 10 - Thursday, July 13, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
    Friday, July 14, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

    IC Hope, our campus Relay for Life team, has just learned some very exciting news. We will be part of a national marketing campaign for the American Cancer Society. The Tompkins County Relay has been chosen as the only Relay in the country to be filmed for a part of the American Cancer Society's new marketing campaign. Our Relay will be filmed on location in Lansing July 14-15. In addition to the Relay, 5-7 survivors will be interviewed by phone and in person as part of the campaign, and three of those selected are part of the IC Hope team. What a tremendous opportunity to show the nation how Ithaca College cares! You can show how you care, too, by supporting the team's fundraising efforts and by showing up to lend support at the Relay. Don't wait for the winged monkeys to bring you to the Campus Center. Check out this schedule to see how and when you can help us:
