The start of each semester is a busy time for many departments and organizations that want to reserve classrooms or other academic spaces for various non-academic activities. There can be some confusion concerning the process for reserving classrooms for these activities leading up to and during the add/drop period each semester. In order to make the process smoother for this upcoming semester, as well as future semesters, here are guidelines for reserving classrooms during the add/drop period.

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.

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.
