As Ithaca College has shifted to remote instruction as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, campus organizations have had to make adjustments of their own as well.
The college’s Student Activities Board (SAB) typically spends the year putting together fun, engaging on-campus events for the college community such as live shows and movie screenings. And while the on-campus aspect of that has changed, its members are determined to prove that the show does indeed go on.
“Just because IC has moved to remote instruction does not mean that SAB stops being a fully functioning organization,” said executive chair Madeline Veneziano ’20. “A huge part of event planning is adapting when things don’t go as planned, so all we are doing is adapting to the current situation.”
A prime example of this flexibility is the organization’s rescheduling of a performance by comedian Jen Kober, which was scheduled to appear on campus on March 24. After it was determined that the show was not going to be able to be held on campus, Kober’s representatives reached out to the SAB regarding the possibility of a “quarantine comedy” performance, which could be viewed online. The show is now scheduled for April 14.
