This Week in Ithaca College History
What was The Ithacan reporting 15 years ago?
During the week of Nov. 12, The Ithacan ran a front-page story about the campus community coming together to remember Matthew Shepard, a gay college student who was tortured and left on the side of a road in Wyoming on Oct. 7, 1998. Shepard died at the hospital six days later on Oct. 12. More than 250 people gathered in honor of Shepard and paid tribute to him. The community came together and spoke out against homophobia and had an open forum for students and faculty to share their thoughts.
