Typically, students entering college don’t get introduced to one of their school’s most iconic traditions before they even get unpacked.
That wasn’t the case Tuesday for members of the Ithaca College Class of 2023. During the official check-in process on move-in day, they had the opportunity to purchase tickets for themselves and their family for the 2019 Cortaca Jug game, taking place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on November 16.
For Connor Free ’23 and his mother, Emilia, this was a day they had been waiting for. “The reason we came to Ithaca was because of the Cortaca Jug,” she said with a grin.
