FIRST Look Is Seeking Volunteers for Dine Out!


Contributed by Lia Munoz

FIRST Look, Ithaca College’s pre-orientation program for First-Generation students and their families, is seeking faculty and staff from the Ithaca College community to volunteer for its “Dine Out” program.

Dine Out is an opportunity for family members to “dine” with an ambassador from IC and other families of First-Generation students at a local restaurant organized through the office of  New Student & Transition Programs. This program is designed to help family members feel welcome in the Ithaca community, meet representatives from IC, and to socialize with other families. We are seeking faculty and staff to serve as ambassadors for IC and join families for lunch on Monday, August 19th from 12:30-3:00pm.

FIRST Look will pay for your lunch if you volunteer as an ambassador!

The following restaurants are participanting in the program:

Faculty and staff are invited to participate in the program by completing the following survey by August 15th, 2019.

Volunteers will receive confirmation of participation and location assignments by August 16th, 2019. During the afternoon of Sunday August 18th, volunteers will receive a notice of how many family members will be joining them for lunch.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, FIRST Look, or Dine Out, feel free to contact Lia Muñoz at
