After 30 plus years of service to Ithaca College, Lorie Holmes-VanDusen will be retiring on June 14, 2019. During her tenure, Lorie became an Ithaca College alumnus as a graduate from the School of Business.

Lorie played a pivotal role in supporting APC and maintaining the Ithaca College course catalogs, working with faculty and staff across campus. Lorie has assisted countless students and alumni reach their academic and career goals.

The following is a small sample of reflections from Lorie’s colleagues on the impact Lorie has had on the Office of the Registrar as they fondly remember her service and wish her well:

  • She will be able to attend more Goddess Gatherings! Lorie took trips each year to Florida (called goddess gatherings because it was all women), for many years, with ladies from IC; enjoy making new goddess memories.
  • I wish you all the best. I hope you enjoy the extra leisure time and the new house.
  • Retirement is when you stop living at work and start working at living.       
  • We are going to miss Lorie’s institutional memory and insight on why/how things were done 20 or 30 years ago.  Sometimes things come up, looking at an archive transcript for example, we all have no idea what it means or why they did it that way.  Lorie usually has an answer.
  • Lorie has worked determinedly and deserves a well-earned retirement. She will be missed.
  • Enjoy spending time with your grandchildren and playing golf! May the sun always shine brightly around you.
  • Lorie will be remembered for the accomplishments she has achieved here at Ithaca College. Thanks for your years of hard work and dedication.
  • If anyone plans to go on a road trip with Lorie now that she is retired, please know she will go from 65 to 0 on a highway to read a map.

Upon Lorie’s request we are not hosting a formal celebration, but feel free to stop in the Office of the Registrar, 2nd floor PRW to wish her well.

Lorie has been an absolutely superb Associate Registrar for many years! Customer service was her passion and deans, faculty, staff, students and alumni all benefitted. Always willing to help well beyond her official role, she used her extensive knowledge to move the Registrar\'s Office and the College forward. Best wishes on your retirement, Lorie. You will be sorely missed.

You are not only the best mom, but also a beyond fabulous
colleague! You have always helped me puzzle and work
through difficulties in school, life, work, and of course
golf! I will miss working with you mom! <3

If I ever needed help with anything, Lorie was always there to
fix problems; and she did so with grace and humor. She is an
unsung heroine. Ithaca College is blessed with some great
people, who behind the scenes make the engine run. Lorie has
always been one of them. Yes, I am happy for you Lorie that you
get to put your feet up, but I am also sad for all of us and the
college as a whole to lose someone of your caliber. Please know
what an impact you made and how you will be dearly missed,
Lorie.

You have been such a great asset to departments in navigating the
many changes that have occurred over your tenure here. We certainly
appreciate all your assistance and help. Hope your retirement is great.
