I would like to extend my thanks to all members of the Ithaca College community who assisted with an extremely successful Family Weekend. More than 2,300 family members registered to attend.  And while Hurricane Sandy had a significant impact on our attendance, those who were able to come enjoyed a variety of events during the weekend of November 2-4, 2012 (as well as a warm hotel bed and hot shower).

Mark your calendars for Family Weekend 2013 - October 25-27, 2013.


Student photographer, Michelle Boule ‘13, 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 panel discussion on interning at the Olympics 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, ICircus, IC Tap Club, Ithacapella, Spit That and more.
  • A lunch performance featuring the jazz quartet of Damien Scalise '13,  Emmett Scott ’15, Sam Shuhan ’15, and Will Siegel ‘13.
  • Two sold-out performances of "Legally Blonde" hosted by the Ithaca College Theatre
  • Three concerts by the School of Music
  • An exhibit in the Handwerker Gallery
  • A football game
  • 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 Family Weekend 2013, which will be held October 25-27, 2013.
