Steven Hess, a Survivor and Holocaust Educator, April 6th

Steven Hess, a Survivor and Holocaust educator will share his personal story of survival: 

Tuesday, April 6th 

7:00 PM Eastern Time 


Steven and his twin sister, Marion were born in Amsterdam on January 14, 1938. His parents, Ilse and Karl, fled Germany two years earlier believing that Holland would provide a safe haven. With the invasion of the Nazis in May 1940, however, hope for a neutral Holland was shattered. In mid-1943, his family was taken to Westerbork, the Dutch transit camp that served as a gateway to Auschwitz, Theresienstadt and Bergen Belsen. The following February they were sent to Bergen Belsen where conditions were so horrific that by the end of the year, nearly 15,000 Jews died each month from starvation, disease, neglect, and maltreatment. Marion and Steven were among very few children to stay alive.

Join Hillel at Ithaca College for this important evening in which we will witness the story of one survivor and reaffirm our commitment that genocide should never happen again.

Academic Mapping Event

Dear Explorer:

Come to our Academic Mapping event tomorrow, Wednesday, March 31st from 7:00-8:00 p.m. or 8:00-9:00 p.m.!

Exploratory Peer Leaders will help you learn how to create a four-year plan to graduation that includes experiences you want to have along the way to on-time graduation. This session includes downloadable instructions, a demonstration of how they work, samples of completed four-year maps, and assistance in starting to create your own. Students who have learned how to map report feeling calmer and more in control of their future since they have a flexible structure to use to move forward. Maps are useful to share with your advisor and to help you make informed choices during fall registration. Co-sponsored by the Exploratory Program and the Retention and Engagement Strategy Team.

Remember, when you come, you will receive:

  • Detailed instructions on how to map
  • Templates to use to help you map your academic 4-year plan
  • First-hand help from peers
  • Sample maps to inspire you

As we near the advising period and registration for fall 2021, it is imperative that you put yourself first on your list of priorities! Plan on success!
