The Month in Review
Top stories of November
1. Managing Editor Allie Healy gives a first-person analysis of what it is like to be a SWUG, or a Senior Washed-Up Girl.
2. Ithaca College confirmed Nov. 19 that it is not considering canceling the Cortaca Jug game, one day after a report Nov. 18 indicated that SUNY Cortland president Erik Bitterbaum and Ithaca College president Tom Rochon discussed cancelling next year’s game.
3. Tucked away inside the bottom lip of nine runners, the ICXC tattoo is one of the newest traditions for the women’s cross-country team. This tattoo is only visible when one of the members of the team pulls down her bottom lip. Also, unlike most tattoos, it fades in about seven years because of acids in the mouth and rubbing that occurs while eating.
4. More than 60 Ithaca College students gathered at the Towers Concourse Lounge for the weekly Open Mic Night on Nov. 6, a day after the administration announced a decision to close down the lounge to accommodate offices beginning in the 2014–15 academic year. The college wants to close the lounge to create space for the Physical Therapy Center, which will move from Rochester to the Ithaca campus during the summer of 2014.
5. A recent study found that Ithaca College students are among top colleges in the nation with a hunger for late-night food. Out of 350 colleges, the college ranks fourth for late-night food ordering via GrubHub. The same study found that college students are 87 percent more likely to order late-night food than any other consumer.
