As the weather gets warmer, Ithaca College students take advantage of the many opportunities for outdoor activities on campus. After months of cold weather and COVID-19 restrictions keeping students isolated indoors, the chance to stretch legs and socialize safely comes as a relief. Whether it be having a picnic on the Campus Center Quad, doing homework by the fountains or learning new skate tricks at the tennis courts, students find ways to relieve stress.
