I would like to extend my thanks to all members of the Ithaca College community who assisted with an extremely successful Family Weekend. Nearly 1,500 family members attended a variety of events during the weekend of November 4-6, 2011.

Student photographer, Alexandra Dean ‘12, spent her weekend taking pictures of the event for your enjoyment. You can see her work by clicking onto the photo galleries at

The highlights of the weekend included:

  •  A keynote address by President Rochon
  • A Film Showing by the Park School
  • The One World Concert, sponsored by the Ithaca College International Club which featured the talents of performers from both Ithaca College and Cornell University
  • The Student Organization Showcase, which featured the talents of student organizations Acahti, Amani Gospel Singers, ICircus, IC Dance Team, IC Tap Club, Ithacapella, Pulse, Premium Blend, and Spit That.
  • A lunch performance featuring the jazz quartet of Jason Juliano '12, Damien Scalise '13, Sam Shuhan ’15, and Will Siegel ‘13.
  • Two sold-out performances of "The Light in the Piazza" hosted by the Ithaca College Theatre
  • Three concerts by the School of Music
  • An exhibit in the Handwerker Gallery
  • A football game and swimming and diving meet
  • Open houses, demonstrations, and receptions by all the academic schools
  • Religious services and a brunch to close the weekend

Special thanks to the staff of Conference and Event Services for handling the logistics of this very busy weekend and ensuring that everything went smoothly, to Facilities for making the campus beautiful and for setting up all the events, to the many event planners across campus who planned and organized individual events, and to our students for sharing their time and talents.

Without the cooperation of the College community this event could not be successful. Thank you to all -- the parents appreciated your work and enjoyed their weekend, and so do I!

Mark your calendars for next year's Family Weekend 2012, which will be held November 2-4,  2012.
