Dear Fellow Students,

It has come to my attention that many of the routes that students walk off-campus can be unsafe, specifically, Troy Road, Coddington Road and 96B/Danby Road. Each of these roads has considerable traffic that moves at various and rapidly changing speeds, and I want to make sure that as students, we all take more caution when walking around our local area, especially late at night.

Some local residents have expressed concern that students have been walking in their yards and in some cases, damaging property such as mailboxes. I understand that on roads like Troy and Coddington there is very little space to walk, as well as deep ditches to keep from falling or tripping into, but we all must be respectful of our neighbors’ property. Our South Hill community is a vibrant one, and that comes from the wonderful cohabitation of students and local residents.  We don’t want to lose that meaningful relationship.

The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) is the largest celebration of student scholarship in the world. Thousands of student scholars from across the United States and from many foreign countries will meet April 7-9, 2016 in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina. Ithaca College will support approximately 40 students to present at NCUR. The College will organize transportation, hotel accommodations, and registration for the conference. Students presenting at NCUR will be expected to pay only for personal purchases.

Who can apply? Any undergraduate student in any program can apply to present their work and virtually every discipline is represented at NCUR. You can also present work that was created in an interdisciplinary posture. Please note, however, that we can typically only support one person for work that was prepared by multiple authors or a team. Creative activity, such as musical or theatrical performance, or other work in the fine arts, is also welcome. Contact us (info below) about special formats and considerations for creative presentations.
