Due to ongoing construction in the Peggy Ryan Williams Center (formerly known as the gateway building) and the relocation of departments into the new building, it has become apparent that the space will not be available in time to accommodate the Weight Watchers at Work (WW@W) meetings that are scheduled to begin in a couple weeks.

Therefore, the meetings are being moved to 203 Center for Health Sciences, a spacious classroom on the second floor past the CHS coffee cart and around the corner to the right (beneath the Wellness Clinic).

The time has been adjusted slightly to 12:15-1:00 p.m.

Commencement 2009 Ushers

Contributed by Suzanne Smith on 03/31/2009 

Submitted on behalf of Rory Rothman, associate vice president for student affairs and campus life.

Ithaca College Staff Members:

On Sunday, May 17, Ithaca College's 114th Commencement exercises will be held. Many of us have had daily contact with the fine young men and women of the 2009 graduating class, and have played an important role in their experience at Ithaca College.

To ensure that the Commencement exercises are carried out in an orderly, distinguished manner, we are requesting your help to serve as an usher. This function is vital as many guests are not familiar with the College, its buildings, and their locations. Duties will vary according to your specific assignment. Program distribution, guest seating, answering questions and giving directions are all things that you could be called upon to do to help maintain a dignified and orderly ceremony.
