I Love IC Week is a week full of celebrations surrounding everything and anything there is to love about Ithaca College! Along with building Bomber pride, the primary purpose of ”I Love IC Week” is to challenge each and every individual on campus to identify why they love Ithaca College as well as educate them on philanthropy. The annual event takes place in February, which is philanthropy month.
The goals of this week of events are to strengthen the campus community, increase awareness of the importance of philanthropy, and thank those who donate time and money to the college. Popular events include the “5 Under 5" panel, where five alumni from the past five years from the five schools of Ithaca College return to campus to speak about their experience, and “Get the Scoop on Philanthropy” where students write thank you notes to donors and enjoy ice cream sundaes.
Events and activities included in I Love IC Week
Ithaca College Annual Fund
In addition to celebrating all things Ithaca College, I Love IC Week is largely focused on philanthropy education and raising awareness of the Ithaca College Annual Fund and what it is used for. The Ithaca College Annual Fund uses donations from students and alumni to support the entire college experience. STAT members have an in depth understanding of what the Annual Fund is used for and why it is essential to the student experience, and seek to spread that knowledge to the general student body and beyond.
