A tertulia is a social gathering with literary or artistic overtones, especially in Spain or Latin America. If you are a student of Spanish, speak Spanish at home and miss speaking it on campus, or you are looking to meet others who are passionate about the Spanish-speaking world and its cultures, then this is your chance! Tertulias are forming, and you should come join the fun!

 There are still some seats in Gender and Sexuality in Spanish Women's Writings (SPAN 26600, CRN 23405)!  This course covers a wide range of literature—narrative fiction, theater and poetry—written by women in Spain, both native born and immigrant, from the period of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) to the present day. Throughout the semester, we will examine a variety of critical approaches and philosophies to develop a framework for thinking about the intersections of gender identity, considering how politics, culture, economics, race, religion, politics—affect women’s lives. This course is tailored to foreground questions related to sexuality and desire, and to identify the ways in which human sexuality intersects with other dimensions of social life. This course is taught in English and counts towards the minor in Women’s and Gender Studies. For more information, contact Maria DiFrancesco, mdifrancesco@ithaca.edu

There are so many things to do as the semester ends, don’t forget about your mail! We offer the following suggestions to help provide continuity in your mail-related services.

Begin notifying the publishers of magazines and newspapers you receive where you will be in May. Their toll free numbers and web sites are usually listed in the front or back of the publication. This mail class is not forwarded by the USPS from our College. The USPS notifies the publishers of the permanent address we provide on the publication and then discards the mail piece.

 We will sort mail into mail boxes until May 16th. All packages will be collected at the Phillips Hall Post Office.

Mail must be picked up from the residence hall mail rooms (except Circle Apts.) by 8:30 a.m., Monday May 19th. After that time, all mail will be moved to the Mail Center located in the General Services Building.

Some Firefox users have reported (and ITS has confirmed) that word wrap in OWA is not working correctly when typing a message (the typed text does not wrap to a new line). Microsoft acknowledges the problem and is investigating. The workaround is to use a different Web browser, such as Chrome or Internet Explorer (Windows), or Chrome or Safari (Mac).

The deadline has passed but the Campus Store will still accept your order for Masters or DPT student regalia.  Please access the Campus Store website and place your order while we still have plenty of stock.
