September 12-14 brings us the annual Professionals Symposium. For nearly 20 years, the symposium has brought Office of Multicultural Affairs alumni and active community supporters to campus to share their expertise and insights with current students during multiple networking events.

Whatever a student's goals for graduate school or professional career, chances are good that an alum will be eager to inform and help, often in a continuing relationship. OMA cosponsors the Professionals Symposium with the College's offices of Alumni Relations and Career Services.

This year, the symposium occurs during Homecoming Weekend, September 12-14, enhancing the opportunity for students to meet alumni and participate in special events. The highlight of the symposium weekend, the annual Academic Achievement Awards Dinner, showcases the accomplishments of our OMA students. This gala evening always draws hundreds of attendees to applaud the students' strong scholarship and to honor alumni and community supporters. Sam Medina '92, VP of human resources at PepsiCo, will be the keynote speaker

Ithaca College faculty and staff are welcome to be our guests at the awards banquet on Saturday night, September 13, from 7:00-9:30 p.m. However, tickets are limited, so if you are interested in attending, contact the OMA office at 4-3881 as soon as possible.
