With mixed emotions, I wanted to let the campus community know that Sayre Wilson, Student Financial Services Specialist, will be leaving Ithaca to pursue an advanced degree at Binghamton University.  Her last day will be Friday, August 2, 2019.

As both an alumna (class of 2010) and a dedicated employee since September 2015, Sayre has given back to the community in many ways.  Whether helping a family in distress or eagerly volunteering her talents as a presenter or attendee at our community events, Sayre has not hesitated to step up to the plate when needed.  I will miss her enthusiasm, creativity, willingness to assist, and many talents!

Please feel free to stop by Student Financial Services to say good bye to Sayre and to wish her well on this next chapter of her life.  We will miss you, Sayre, but know that you will continue to be a wonderful ambassador for Ithaca!

The Office of Career Services wishes a fond farewell and best wishes to Kerry Spitze, Assistant Director for Industry and Community Engagement. Kerry's last day at Ithaca College will be this Friday, July 26th.
