Convocation and Community Picnic 2017

The Ithaca College community is invited to help welcome the Class of 2021 and our new transfer students to campus!

The annual Convocation ceremony marks the official start of the new academic year, while the community picnic that follows is a great time to meet and mingle with IC's newest members, and to catch-up with colleagues and acquaintances from across campus. 

This year's ceremony will include a performance by students in the IC West African Drum & Dance Ensemble, a run-through of the alma mater "Ithaca Forever," a special gift for the Class of 2021, remarks from President Shirley M. Collado -- and of course plenty of food and socializing!

Please join us for this fun, friendly and engaging start to the new year!

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Karen Emnett, at or 274-3113. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.

Monday, August 28, 2017 at 11:00am to 1:30pm

The Convocation and Community Picnic yesterday were both full of energy and upbeat. I loved the new touches such as the welcoming tunnels, African drum and dance group, and teaching the crowd "Ithaca Forever". We are off to a great start...welcome Class of 2021!
