The third week of Ithaca College’s Spring Welcome was accompanied by snow, skating and scavenger hunts on South Hill.
One of the highlights of the week was Skate Across IC. Located next to the Campus Center, the event allowed students to ice skate on a temporary, mobile skating rink, made of a synthetic ice–like surface. The size of the rink allowed students to skate with others, while remaining socially distant.
Kathryn Miller ’24 wasn’t sure what to expect when she signed up for Skate Across IC — it’s not common to find a skating rink on a campus — but she said the atmosphere, which included music and friendly competition, was lively.
“The people who were working were super energetic, and they encouraged my friends and I to race, and it was actually really fun because they were supporting us and cheering us on,” she said.
