Join the Friends of Ithaca College

Membership in the Friends means directly supporting young people from central New York. No less than 100 percent of the Friends' membership dues goes to scholarships and endowed internships for local students attending IC as well as other key college initiatives. Over 350 scholarships have been awarded to date.

The Friends' busy cultural calendar includes a special evening of theatre in the fall, a musical event in the spring, the eagerly anticipated Commencement Eve Concert in May, the Founder's Day Concert in the Park in September, and a gala holiday dinner in December.

And, in addition to getting to know your fellow Friends, membership provides unique opportunities to spend time with Ithaca's president, Tom Rochon, along with college deans and administrators.

Other perks include a parking pass for all Ithaca College lots (please note that this pass is not valid on vehicles owned by, registered to, or operated by Ithaca College students); discounted prices on IC theatre performances; eligibility to purchase a membership to IC's outdoor pool; and a subscription to ICView (the Ithaca College magazine) and weekly e-news from the college.
