From sore throats to flu shots; STI testing to x-rays; medication dispensary to student health insurance information; and lab services to nutrition counseling, Hammond Health Center provides high-quality health care to IC students. Staff ensure that our community is healthy by sharing best practices for remaining healthy and by collecting new students’ health and immunization history (as required by New York State law). Access the myICHealth portal by using your IC Netpass log-in information. See Hammond Health’s website for new students for additional details. You'll be asked to provide a copy of a recent physical exam and official immunization record. All health forms are due by JUNE 30. Email email@example.com or call 607-274-1334 if you have questions.

Within your theme, you’ll take one class each in the Creative Arts, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences. To choose your theme, log in to HomerConnect, navigate to IC Workflow (bottom left corner), and look for “ICC Theme Declaration.” Contact Susan Adams Delaney, the director of the ICC, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.

IC President Emphasizes Commitment to Progress & Systemic Change: COVID-19, Economics, and Anti-Racism
In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, IC President Shirley M. Collado affirmed the college’s plans to provide a secure residential campus environment for students during this time of multiple crises in our country. Emphasizing social justice, equity, and accountability on college campuses, Collado said, “I believe very firmly that if you’re in the business of educating young people from all walks of life and putting them together in an environment where they normally would not select each other as friends, we carry a great responsibility in creating a space that’s not just about talking, it’s about doing.”
Student Org Spotlight: Students of Color Coalition (SOCC)
SOCC, a Center for IDEAS initiative, strives to create unity and solidarity among people of color (POC) in the greater campus community. There are many race-based student orgs on campus and SOCC encourages collaboration and communication among all of them. SOCC works with partner orgs to create events, workshops, town halls, and other meetings. Check out the SOCC newsletter for information and resources, or reach out via email or social media to connect with SOCC or a partner race-based org.
IC Tradition: Visit the Ithaca Farmers Market!
For many IC students, a favorite tradition is weekly visits to the Ithaca Farmers Market. It’s an excellent way to connect with the local community, support local farms and businesses, and eat healthy. From cider to honey to soap to fresh greens, the market offers dozens of healthy, local alternatives and a wonderful experience at the pavilion on the lake.
