Author Kathleen Bogle will present her new book "Hooking Up"

"It happens every weekend: In a haze of hormones and alcohol, groups of male and female college students meet at a frat party, a bar, or hanging out in a dorm room, and then hook up for an evening of sex first, questions later. As casually as the sexual encounter begins, so it often ends with no strings attached; after all, it was “just a hook up.” While a hook up might mean anything from kissing to oral sex to going all the way, the lack of commitment is paramount.
Hooking Up is an intimate look at how and why college students get together, what hooking up means to them, and why it has replaced dating on college campuses. " Book Description - Publishers Weekly.

Co-sponsored by the Health Promotion Committee and the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance. This event is free and open to the public.

LGBT Center Seeks Input

Contributed by Luca Maurer on 03/17/2008 

The Center for LGBT Education, Outreach & Services opened its doors at Ithaca College in the fall of 2001. During that time ideas for events, programs and services to be offered by the Center were sought from the campus community. Many of those ideas have been put into practice – the Resource Room, film screenings, a newsletter, the Rainbow reception for graduates and an annual speaker for National Coming Out Day – and as the Center continues to serve LGBT and Allied students at Ithaca College, I am looking for another round of feedback, suggestions and ideas about the Center’s services, events and programs.

What do you think? The LGBT Center wants to know! Provide your input here by answering some quick questions - LGBT Center survey -
