New Student Welcome Parties

Every summer Ithaca College alumni and parents host receptions in their homes and businesses to welcome incoming students and their families to Ithaca College. These informal gatherings offer a wonderful opportunity for new students and their families to be introduced to the college. Parents can network with other parents, alumni, and trustees in their area, and their children can ask current students and recent graduates all about IC.

This year, welcome parties will be held in the metropolitan areas listed below. Registration will open in mid-May, so please check back.
