The first day of fall semester classes at Ithaca College is Wednesday, August 28. However, students and faculty members should follow their Monday class schedules for that first day of classes only.
The College must follow the Monday class schedules on that first day to compensate for observing the Labor Day holiday (on the following Monday) and meet the minimum requirements for class hours established by the New York State Education Department.
Best wishes for a smooth and productive semester.

Mary J. Pitti, Clinical Assistant Professor and Clinic Director in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, recently published Problem-Solving Photo Scenes, a therapy tool designed to help people with disabilities improve recall, problem-solving, and reasoning skills.
Problem-Solving Photo Scenes is a set of 75 cards depicting everyday problems faced by people with disabilities in their home and community. Each card features a photo of a situation with five critical thinking questions printed on the reverse side. The questions lead clients to identify potential obstacles, come up with solutions, and find parallels in their day-to-day life. The cards are suitable for individuals or groups and questions can be modified to meet the cognitive levels of each client.
Problem-Solving Photo Scenes is available to purchase online.

When Park Hall was designed in the late 1980's, its front entrance was purposefully placed directly opposite the entrance to Phillips Hall to allow for a more pedestrian friendly environment between those two buildings, Williams Hall, the later constructed Center for Natural Sciences, Hammond Health Center, and the residence halls. It has taken over 25 years, however as part of the resurfacing of U-Lot, that new system of sidewalks has been put in place and will be available to the campus community when that portion of campus reopens later this week. By necessity, we will still have a mix of pedestrians and motor vehicles there, but we think the new sidewalks, curbing, striping and landscaping will serve to better define the appropriate areas for each and facilitate safer crossings between them. Please observe and use the newly designed pedestrian and vehicle pattern carefully and enjoy this much improved area of our campus. Thank you.
On May 20, 1974 Karen McGavin's 6 and 8 year old zany and rambunctious daughters, Tammy and Monica, drove her out of the house and into the Ithaca College workplace as a secretary in the then Office of College Relations. Karen adapted quickly to her new environment and her wonderful upbeat and bubbly personality has been a part of the Ithaca College community for over 39 years; the last 34 of which she has spent working with "what's his name" in the Office of Finance and Administration. Who reported to whom in that office has been an unresolved issue for the entire duration of the relationship! However, it doesn't matter anymore because Karen is retiring at the end of this month. So please come and help us celebrate her many years of dedicated service to the College on Wednesday, August 28th from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm in the Clark Lounge of the Campus Center.
