One hundred and sixty-seven students were inducted into the Oracle Honor Society on November 4th, 2019 at a ceremony held in Emerson Suites.

The Oracle Honor Society is a historic Ithaca College honor society that recognizes academic excellence. New students who achieved a GPA within the top 10% of students in their academic school after completing two full semesters at Ithaca College are invited to accept membership into the society.

Each year, the inductees nominate and select a faculty member to be inducted with them. This honor recognizes the faculty member's excellence in teaching, willingness to assist or mentor students, and involvement in our campus community. This year's Faculty Inductee is Mike Haaf, Professor in the Chemistry Department for the School of Humanities and Sciences. Congratulations Professor Haaf!
