From your phone calls, emails, and social media comments, we know that the loss of the on-campus, in-person college experience has hit hard for many of our students. We want to share with you our thoughts regarding your student experience for the remainder of the semester. We invite you to the first all-student virtual gathering, hosted by me and President Collado, which is scheduled to take place on Friday, April 3, from noon-1:00 p.m. ET. To help us answer as many questions as possible in the time allotted, please submit your questions in advance via this online form no later than 5:00 p.m. E.T. on Tuesday, March 31. Once the details have been finalized, we will let you know how to take part in this gathering.
As I shared with you in my last message, Student Affairs and Campus Life and many other offices are working diligently to provide you with opportunities for virtual connections and support. Virtual activities this week include: yoga, religious and spiritual services, meditation, career counseling and a Soup and Hope event with Luca Maurer, Director of LGBTQ Education, Outreach, and Services. Follow @ithacacollege on Instagram to see a list each Sunday of upcoming campus-wide virtual activities. You’ll continue to get a weekly email from the Office of Student Engagement team with events as well. All virtual events will be posted to the Ithaca College events calendar.
