The Ithacan has been named a Gold Medalist for 2015 in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s annual college publication critique.
Among the judge’s comments, “Congratulations on a wonderful hybrid entry! Both products are worthy of praise. You seem to be doing so many things well, and I hope your college community realizes what good journalism you are doing. Your coverage of the apparent lack of confidence in your president is comprehensive and commendable.”
The Ithacan has been named a national finalist for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s 2016 Crown Award in the competition’s “hybrid” category. The hybrid category is defined as “print publications that provide live coverage via website between print editions” and is the most competitive category in the competition.
The winners, who receive either a Gold or Silver Crown, will be announced at the Spring National College Media Convention in New York City, March 12–15.
The Ithacan was awarded Gold Crowns in 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012.
Founded in 1925, the CSPA is owned by Columbia University and operated as a program affiliated with its Graduate School of Journalism. The Crown Awards, first presented in 1982, are the organization’s highest recognition of overall excellence. The Crown Award, along with the Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker Award, is one of the top collegiate press awards in the country.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! For those who don’t speak French, that means “let the good times roll,” a traditional phrase used in celebration of Mardi Gras, the theme of the African Latino Society’s annual social. Festive colors decorated the event — gold for power, purple for justice, and green for faith.Tickets were sold and donations were accepted to fundraise for the water crisis occurring in Flint, Michigan. The "Winter Wonderland Ball" was held Saturday, Feb. 20 in Emerson Suites and is part of the series of events for Black History Month.
Students Today Alumni Tomorrow hosted their fourth annual "I <3 IC" event Feb. 15-19.

The winning charity was Wyldlife Young Life of Ithaca. Other events included the "Five under Five: Looking Back, Moving Forward" panel, where five alumni under five years after graduating spoke on a panel; "IC Kindness" Day, where students were invited to write thank you notes to members of the campus community; Get the Scoop on Philanthropy, where students could write thank you notes to donors and received ice cream sundaes served by celebrity faculty and staff scoopers; and ended with "Celebrate IC" Day, where everyone was invited to share why they love Ithaca College.

IC Players held their annual performance of the "Vagina Monologues", a series of monologues based off of interviews with real women about their views on sex, relationships, and the feminine experience as a whole. Senior Samantha Guter directed the show, which was originally written by Eve Ensler. Proceeds from the ticket sales benefited "V-Day", an organization committed to fighting violence against women. "Vagina Monologues" was held on Sunday, Feb. 14 in Emerson Suites.
Flying under the radar of IC's cause-based student organizations since its inception in October 2013, Ithaca College China Care Club (IC3C) has seen great success since its re-branding this past academic year. IC3C kicked off the semester with a bang, organizing its “One Billion Rising” event this past Valentine’s Day in the IC Fitness Center to promote awareness of domestic violence. Being able to host this event, which also happens to be part of an international revolution to end violence against women, was an opportunity that the student organization was very grateful to have.
