 The Ithacan has been named a Gold Medalist for the 2013–14 academic year in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s annual college newspaper critique.

Among the judge’s comments, “Congratulations on publishing an outstanding print and digital newspaper and your Gold Medalist and All Columbian honors. You entertain, inform, practice enterprise journalism and serve as a student forum, all in an exceptional manner.”

Each year the CSPA evaluates member papers on overall content, news, depth reporting, features, opinion/editorial, sports, arts/entertainment, editing/headline writing, and design/graphics based on more than 150 specific criteria. This year the paper scored 963 on the critique’s 1,000-point scale. The CSPA consistently ranks The Ithacan as a Gold Medalist, its highest category. All Columbian Honors are given within a scorebook section when the sectional total reaches 95% or more of the possible points.

 Five Ithacan students have been honored with 2014 Gold Circle Awards in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s annual competition honoring work by individuals in collegiate publications. The 2014 awards are for work produced during the 2013–14 academic year.

Campus Center Wi-Fi Completed

Contributed by Matt Gorney on 03/24/2015 

Ithaca College ITS is very pleased to announce that Campus Center has now successfully passed the testing phase and is now complete.  That means anyone using the Dining Hall, IC Square, or visiting Egbert, or Emerson should have consistent, stable, and robust Wi-Fi connectivity.

Our Network Services team worked hard to roll out the new Wi-Fi just in time for Ed Tech Day.  We monitored the usage that day, and were consistently impressed with the speeds and number of users that we were able to handle.  We received many compliments on the Wi-Fi from our visitors as well as the Ithaca College attendees. Also, almost one-third of all users were connecting using the newest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard which most new smartphones use.  This would have not been possible before our Wi-Fi remediation.
