The first vehicle that Jusan Hamilton ever drove was a tractor, meandering around in his backyard in Ithaca. He was three years old. Now, less than six months after graduating from Ithaca College with dual degrees in integrated marketing communications and sociology, Hamilton spends his days rubbing shoulders with the likes of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, and Matt Kenseth.
As a junior at Ithaca College, Rochelle Frankson ’13 was already involved in cancer research, contributing data to the collective knowledge the world has about the disease. Frankson’s work may eventually help lead to advances in cancer treatment. “Using the skills that I’ve developed to solve a problem that so many people are facing is a good way to use my time on earth,” she said.
CrossFit promotes the use of a continually changing array of aerobic and weight lifting exercises to improve muscular strength, cardiorespiratory endurance, and flexibility. Both Eamon Coyne ’12, M.S. ’14, and Tim Paulson ’12, M.B.A. ’13, licensed owners of CrossFit Pallas in Ithaca, embody the CrossFit attitude in mind, body, and spirit.
When Sarah Rabice ’14 first started doing research with biology professor Andy Smith, she knew he studied slugs, but she didn’t fully understand the significance of it.
