‘I Love IC’ Week Celebrates Ithaca College

By Dan Verderosa, February 20, 2019
Special week features fun events for the IC community.

The seventh annual “I Love IC” Week will run Feb. 25-March 1, and is once again planned and organized by students from the Students Today Alumni Tomorrow organization. This year’s festivities include daily events and activities like the “Kick Back to Give Back” competition and “Five under Five” — a career-focused panel featuring young alumni. 

“STAT members have been planning ‘I Love IC’ Week for months and we are very excited for the whole community to participate in the week of events,” said Ashley Hilliker ’19, vice president of events for Students Today Alumni Tomorrow.
