Due to consistently low utilization on campus, starting on December 23rd, Egbert, the Ithaca Carshare vehicle for South Hill, will be removed permanently from the Ithaca College campus. Egbert will be relocated to the corner of Hudson and Columbia Streets, conveniently located right along TCAT Route 11 service to/from campus.

Ithaca College and Ithaca Carshare both hope that this relocation will better support the needs of Ithaca College students living on South Hill, and having the Ithaca Carshare service linked to TCAT Route 11 means that Egbert is still only a short bus ride away from campus users. 

New to Ithaca Carshare? Use promo code "South Hill" during January to get a free membership application!

Contributed by Jen Walsh on 12/20/11 

The Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday will be celebrated in 2012 at IC during the first week of classes, January 23-28, 2012 (as the Federal holiday falls this year prior to the return of students). MLK Week 2012 marks the 17th annual Ithaca College community celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his teachings. 

The MLK Week planning committee is proud to announce the 2012 MLK Week theme:  A New Definition of Greatness. 

“If you want to be great – wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. That’s a new definition of greatness…it means that everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from the “Drum Major Instinct" sermon, given on February 4, 1968
