Classes need to be more hands-on

By | Apr 15, 2010

Classes emphasizing community-based learning have had an outstanding impact on my being.

Suicide calls for sensitive reactions

By | Apr 9, 2010

I was greatly shocked by the attitude of Jennifer Streid-Mullen, the director of the Suicide Prevention Center (March 25, “Cornell Campus shaken after suicides”). But first, I would like to applaud The Ithacan and the writer Taylor Long for tackling such a difficult story. In the past, there have been on-campus suicides that have not…

Senior revisits most meaningful courses

By | Apr 9, 2010

With two months left in my four-year stretch at Ithaca College, I have taken classes that were time well spent and some that I have forgotten about.
