Confused about how much food you should be eating? Registered Dietitian, Natalie Nicholas will be joining us from Longview to answer some of your portion distortion questions. Portion sizes have changed a lot in the last 20 years.  “Small fries” are replaced by “medium fries”, small lattes are now “tall” or “grande”. You can purchase 64 ounces of soda all at once.  While more food on the plate may seem great, portion sizes matter when it comes to our health and fitness.

Stop by the Portion Distortion table at Terraces Dining Hall and we’ll provide some answers! And, while you’re there, play the portion distortion game for a chance to win a Fitbit Flex!

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.
