FYRE Academic Connections
In addition to a wide range of social activities, you will have the opportunity to experience programs and events in FYRE that directly relate to your first-year theme. The Themes and Perspectives are a component of the Ithaca College Integrative Core Curriculum (ICC). This is a great way to connect with other students and your Faculty/Staff Associate.
Each first-year residential area will have six faculty/staff associates, one who will work with each of the themes in the Core Curriculum.
RA(s) and your Faculty/Staff Associate plan and implement a variety of theme events and civic engagement projects each semester to provide a common experience around your chosen academic theme. Some academic theme programs might include:
Slam Poetry Contest
Studying Power and Justice through the Batman Movies
Sustainability in Ithaca
FYRE Students are expected to attend a minimum of two academic theme events per semester. Academic program attendance will be documented in your e-portfolio.
