Dear faculty and staff,

In case you missed the announcement at last night’s year-end party, we wanted to share some wonderful news and let you know that our winter break will be extended by one day and that the college will be closed on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, as our way to thank you all for your hard work this year.

We will observe this day as an additional paid holiday to this year's winter break schedule. Ithaca College will reopen on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. As a reminder, the updated holiday schedule can be found online.

IC’s 125th birthday year has been fast-paced and exceptional as we continue to chart the future course for the college. Your collaborations and tremendous effort has made for an extraordinary year and an extraordinary experience for the many visitors to IC during the Weekend on South Hill in early November.

You have truly earned this extra day off and we thank you for your work in 2017 and for your continued support as we look forward to the new year. If you have any questions, please contact human resources at 274-8000 or humanresources@ithaca.edu.
