We’re so excited to welcome freshman Tynesha Taylor into the Honors family. Tynesha is originally from the Bronx and will be majoring in Athletic Training at IC. Learn more about her below!


What are you passionate about? What do you love to do?

I have a passion and love for sports and helping people! I love playing volleyball, basketball, flag football, and many other sports! I have a very positive and vibrant attitude and love to radiate that positivity to other people. I love playing sports, hanging out with friends, being on social media, listening to music, watching movies, chilling, and going out to have fun!

What are you most excited for about Ithaca College?

I am very excited to become a leader in the IC community and of course to make lots of new friends! I plan to join clubs, intramural sports, and potentially IAP, CSTEP, and hope to get into the Jumpstart Program for Lead In!

What have you been up to this summer?

Currently, I am working at a beach club for my first summer job! I work in the snack bar and have been learning how to prepare salads, burgers, and just about any type of fast food item you can think of! I’ve worked the register, delivered food, and have also made new friends!

We’re always looking for interesting students to highlight in our Spotlight series.
