Director’s Note: Save the Date and Register

Happy Summer Everyone!  Ithaca has been in a bit of a weather drought lately, but I am literally looking out my window now and it is raining.  Hey, it is Ithaca, and it will be sunny in like 10 minutes and then rain again later!  On the eship front, we are gearing up for our annual student eShip Kickoff event on September 8th and just launched the website for our Eclectic Convergence conference, which will be held on Oct 21st at Cornell Tech in NYC.  Save the date and register!  We are looking forward to “normal times” once again on campus – students start to arrive mid-August!  Take care.
