Open to every incoming first year student, this humongous block party featuring an inflatable obstacle course, crafts, candy, and first-year reflection activities. This event was a feat in itself, but extra kudos to the expertise, communication, and planning used by IC After Dark to pull this event off without meeting in person!

“Live every day to the fullest.” Have you heard this quote before? It’s a life motto that lots of people share; everyone wants to make the most out of each and every day. Front Row is a new student organization on campus that was founded last year by a group of four students interested in showing their classmates that adhering to this motto can lead to happiness and success. The Ithaca College chapter of Front Row is one of the first collegiate chapters of Front Row Foundation, a national organization that provides opportunities for people with terminal illnesses to be in the front row of a sporting event with their favorite team, concert by their favorite artist, or other form of live entertainment. The focus for Front Row on campus will be more about showing students how to “live their lives in the front row.” The student organization plans to have fundraisers for the national foundation, but their main focus will be encouraging people to see every day as an opportunity to live life to the fullest. They hope to be the first of many collegiate chapters founded to share this mission.
