Farewell Reception for myIthaca


Contributed by Nicole Eversley Bradwell

After more than 15 years, we will be retiring the myIthaca tool as we integrate more robust technologies to engage prospective and enrolling students. Please join us to celebrate!

In the early 2000's a concept arose in the design of a portal that allowed students to apply online and check the status of their application.  That creation was the myIthaca portal.  This gateway helped each student navigate through the application process in a personalized fashion.  After 5 years a new feature was added, IC Peers, that allowed applicants to chat directly with one another to build relationships.  This social media activity in myIthaca and IC Peers has been an integral part of our student recruitment and enrollment.

The myIthaca platform, built and maintained by Ithaca College, has become less effective over time with the emergence of other global technologies and social media applications.  This fall,  we will turn off myIthaca after 15+ years of faithful service to the college and replace it with state-of-the-art constituent relationship management tools.

Help us celebrate the creativity, strategic thinking, and technical savvy that fed into myIthaca’s success over the years as we decommission it for some well-earned retirement. 

Join us on Thursday, September 12 from 4-5 p.m. on the Peggy Ryan Williams Patio.
