News From The Director

The fall is always a beautiful time to be in New York City and this fall has been spectacular thus far.  This weekend features a subway series between the league-leading Mets and play-off hopefuls the Yankees. This semester's ICNYC students will be gathering on Sunday afternoon to stroll the newly extended High Line and to window shop and snack at the Chelsea Market. Next week Pope Francis is coming to town!  Never a dull moment for ICNYC students.

This semester, there are students from all 5 Schools at Ithaca which encourages students to get to know people they don't know on campus.  A series of Sunday activities have brought students together to see the Cooper Hewitt Museum, to picnic in Central Park, enjoy a variety of cuisines on a Hell's Kitchen food tour and to take the ferry to Governors Island.

The Tuesday night internship seminar has welcomed a recent grad of the program Emma From '15 who got her job as a Programming Assistant at Viacom from her experience there as an intern in spring '14. We've also learned internship pointers from Career Coach Marti Fischer P'17 and alum David Meberg '85, President & CEO at Consolidated Carpet, a leading East Coast flooring contractor.

Students are interning at The Tonight Show, Good Housekeeping, New York 1, Scheme Engine, Young & Rubicam Advertising, Viacom, Telsey & Co., Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Apple, CBS Consumer Products, and Republic Records. Music students are taking private instruction from top New York City musicians and, in some cases, doing internships as well.
