Student Employees perform an invaluable service with enthusiasm, dedication and initiative. Along with our annual celebration of appreciation, that takes place in April, we will be honoring one Student Employee with an Ithaca College Student Employee of the Year Award. Each Department will be allowed one student nomination. The Student Employment Office will begin accepting nominations immediately and continue to do so until March 15, 2015. All nominations must be completed online and contain the required documentation, noted below to be considered complete and eligible for the committee to review. Ithaca College employs approximately 3,000 student employees each academic year and we know that selecting just one student nominee per department is a hard task. We highly suggest departmental committees for the nomination selection review.

In Rueda de Casino multiple couples dance in a circle doing moves that are called out by the “cantante” or caller, who is also one of the circle dancers.
