"I Love IC" Week Features Fun and Spotlights Alumni Memories

The fourth annual “I Love IC” Week will run February 15–19 and is once again planned and organized by students from the Students Today Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) organization.

This year’s festivities include daily events and activities and a special “Gratitude Day” on Thursday that seeks to connect alumni and their cherished professors. Alumni are encouraged to send a quick note through a special link to a professor, resident assistant, coach, dining hall staff member, or other IC community member to say thanks. The STAT students will print out the messages and spread the love by delivering them to their intended recipient. If a faculty or staff member written to no longer works at the college, the students will make every effort to locate him or her. Notes may be submitted until February 22, 2016.  

See more information on the events below and visit www.ithaca.edu/ILoveICWeek to see videos and photos of the events that will be added throughout the week.  Follow the hashtag #ILoveICWeek on social media.
