Jumpstart is a collaboration between several departments on campus that offers new students a chance to explore the local community, learn about resources on campus, and meet new friends. We are offering 10 half-day Jumpstart programs on a variety of topics on three Saturdays after first-year students move in and before in-person classes begin: September 19, 26, and October 3. This program is only open to new first-year and transfer students and there is no cost to participate, but there is a selection process. Read about each program and its distinct focus on the Jumpstart website www.ithaca.edu/jumpstart-program, then choose your favorite. Applications are open August 10 to September 7 and applicants will be notified about program placements on September 11. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the IC Jumpstart program.
