Contributed by Susan Monagan on 04/18/2014 

Ithaca College Theatre students are joining with Ithaca High School students for a day of theatre exploration and learning via Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” on Thursday April 24 at Ithaca High School.

The day will consist of nine workshops pertaining to different elements and themes in Arthur Miller’s classic play. All juniors at Ithaca High School will be attending a student performance of “The Crucible” on April 25th at 10am, and the workshops are a way of educating the students about the play using methods other than literature and lecture. “The workshops allow students to turn their knowledge into action”, says Katlyn Rapini ’14, coordinator of the program.

No Pressure Blood Pressure is Back!

Contributed by Judy Mauk on 04/18/2014 

The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Tuesday, April 22nd. Important reasons not to miss the next screening:

1. 65 million Americans have hypertension (high blood pressure)

2. Many people don't even know their blood pressure is high because there are no symptoms in most cases

3. Hypertension can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and kidney disease

4. 66% of those IC employees measured at the last screening were pre-hypertensive   (above ideal )

5. A 20 point increase in systolic blood pressure (top number) or a 10 point increase in diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) doubles the risk of heart disease.

6. Poor diet, inactivity, and being overweight can lead to an increase in blood pressure

7. If one does not adopt a healthy lifestyle, the hypertensive individual will need to take costly medication with potential side effects

8. Physical and emotional stress can elevate your blood pressure

This is a reminder that if you are registered with Student Disability Services and have an accommodation plan for the Spring semester, you should sign up for all final exams that you plan to take with the office as soon as possible.

You can sign up until 5:00 pm on Wednesday, April 23. The office cannot accept exam requests after this date

You can accomplish this by filling out the Final Exam Request Forms in 110 Towers Concourse or by phoning your request to 607-274-1005 or 1257. Forms can also be downloaded from the website at www.ithaca.edu/sds but they must be submitted in person. 

It is very important that you note all of your test accommodations on the form; otherwise, you will only receive extended time for your exam. Due to the large number of students taking finals with the office, we can't make last minute changes.
