For those of you who will come to us from across state lines and will be new here at Ithaca College, I thought I would take a moment to remind you of our cell phone/texting laws here in New York State. Won't you please take a moment to familiarize yourselves if you are not...
The Ithaca Police Department and Cornell University Police Department are investigating three reported instances of sexual assault that occurred on and around the Cornell campus in the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 2. While none of the victims are members of the Ithaca College community, the Ithaca College Office of Public Safety wants to take this opportunity to remind students of the continued need to practice personal safety.
One of the ways we can all work together to keep IC safe is being able to recognize someone in emotional distress, respond in a helpful manner and refer that person to someone able to help. With this being National Suicide Prevention Week, a Pathways training has been scheduled and is open to all members of the campus community.
Pathways is a crisis intervention and suicide prevention training provided to the campus community by Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). You are invited to participate in an hour-long training Thursday, September 6, 2012, at 6pm in Textor 101. Advanced registration is not required.
About Pathways, one student said: "I was a little uncomfortable at first but [the trainer] made it more comfortable for me. By the end, I was glad that I came because now I know how to help a friend in need."
What do Barack Obama, Henry David Thoreau, and Ithaca College writing professor Eleanor Henderson have in common? All have written books selected for IC’s First-Year Reading Initiative. In fact, Professor Henderson’s first novel, Ten Thousand Saints, is the book all freshmen received at their Summer Orientation.
