The staff of the Center for LGBT Education, Outreach and Services knows that being back at home can be wonderful, but sometimes stressful. And some students may believe this particular break is a good time to come out to family and friends. Coming out is a highly individual, personal process. Only you can know when and whether it's the right time for you. The basic resources section of the LGBT Center website includes specific resources for you, your family, and friends, about coming out - whether you decide to do so this week, or at any other time of the year that's right for you. The Thanksgiving break resources page includes additional helpful information including how to find the nearest LGBT community center to your home community, national hotline information, and more. Resources are also always available from the LGBT Center, throughout the academic year. Wishing you a safe and happy Thanksgiving break!

 Applications are now being accepted for the Linden Award for Learning Portfolio Excellence. This award is open to seniors who best demonstrate through their learning portfolios what they have learned in their college experience and what connections they draw among different elements of their Ithaca College education, presented in a form that effectively communicates to an external audience.

Portfolios will exemplify integrative thinking, critical and analytical problem solving and reflective learning outcomes, as created by students who have sought guidance and mentoring from Ithaca College alumni. This award has been made possible by the generosity of Jay and Judith Linden. For the 2014-15 competition, three finalists will receive a cash prize, with $3,000 for the best portfolio and $1,500 for each of the two runners-up.
