If I didn't see it with my own eyes....

...I would never (ever) have believed it.

Take a look at this list of awards the Ithacan has won this year....that's right. THIS YEAR.

In the words of the immortal Homer (Simpson, that is), "Woo Hoo!" Congratulations to all of the students, faculty, and staff that made all of this happen. It's an unbelievable achievement and everyone should be very proud.
