The Sustainably Conscious Community (SCC) provides students with the opportunity to explore the concepts of sustainability, practice a sustainable lifestyle, socialize with other students through community meetings & dinners, and build awareness about sustainability issues within the rest of the Ithaca College community. Over the years, SCC students have participated in a wide variety of experiential opportunities including local tours, camping adventures, community dinners, and intimate discussions with sustainability academics.
SCC is not currently offered (2015-2016) but will return as a learning community for Fall 2016! SCC will be located on the second floor of Terrace 8 for 2016-17. Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to apply. Applications will be available on HomerConncect beginning January 25, 2016 for fall 2016 housing.
Have an interest in gardening? SCC students will have the opportunity to participate in a new collaborative Rooftop Garden project, located on the rooftop of Terrace 1/Terraces Dining hall! The new garden is a collaborative project between the Ithaca College Community Organic Gardens, School of Humanities and Sciences, Energy Management and Sustainability Department, and the Office of Residential Life.
