Posted on behalf of President Tom Rochon and Interim Vice President (CFO) Janet Williams. 

Beginning this year, the U.S. Department of Education is making the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available three months earlier than in the past. Students can now apply for federal financial aid beginning October 1, rather than January 1. The goal of early FAFSA is to expand college opportunity by ensuring that students and families have more time to consider their college options with an understanding of the financial resources available to help them pay for college.

Beginning on October 25th the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management will be conducting a sweep of the campus for the purpose of removing bicycles and bicycle parts that are obviously abandoned and/or parked where they should not be.  The sweep is being conducted to improve campus safety, maximizes the availability of bike parking resources and improve the beauty of our campus environment.   

According to newly adopted Ithaca College Bicycle Policy, a bicycle is considered abandoned when it is ..."found under circumstances which reasonably indicate that it has been abandoned (e.g., it appears to be inoperable and/or it does not appear to have been moved for an extended period of time)".  

 Bicycles will be tagged.  Seven days later any bike that has not been removed will be confiscated.  Impounded bicycles will be stored for a period not less than 90 days and in accordance with New York State Personal Property Law.  

 The campus community can help in this effort by reporting any suspected abandoned bicycles to parking@ithaca.edu. 

This Wednesday through Friday, October 26 to 28, the U-Lot (Campus Center Lot) will be closed 6 to 9 a.m. each morning for reserved event parking.  As of 9 a.m. it will be open for normal use.  Individuals typically parking in this lot at the start of the business day will need to use other campus parking options until 9 a.m.  Individuals needing to use the handicapped spaces in U-Lot can continue to do so during the reserved hours by speaking to the lot attendant.

Individuals who had stroke more than 6 months ago are needed for a study investigating the impact of physical therapy on walking and balance. Participants will be randomized to exercise in the water or on land using a treadmill 3 times per week for 4 weeks and will be compensated for their time. Please contact Sarah Fishel at sfishel@ithaca.edu for additional information. 

 

You can help people facing homelessness by donating new or gently used socks, which you can bring to the specially marked donation boxes in Muller Chapel.
