This past Saturday, the Ithaca College Chapter of the American Advertising Federation held their 12th biannual Creative Crunch competition. Teams of 2-4 students had just 2 hours to design 2 print ads and a 3rd ad of their choice for a mystery brand. All students who participated gained valuable skills in advertising and communications as well as some great alumni networking opportunities. In fact, the judges of the competition were some of our own IC alumni!

Stop Wasting Ithaca's Food Today, also known as SWIFT, is one of the hidden gems of Ithaca College's student organizations. SWIFT ensures that IC dining halls' excess food does not go unused. Every Friday at 4PM, SWIFT members congregate in Towers Dining Hall to take leftover food and save it for future use. The student organization's adviser, Towers Dining Hall service manager Brandon Innerst, takes an active role in the organization by helping students with packaging and storage materials. Every week, SWIFT ends up distributing anywhere between 20-60 meals by bringing them to Rescue Mission in the Ithaca Commons.
