Summertime on a college campus is pretty much the best. Things seem just a little slower, a little more leisurely. Classes are a little smaller. There are fewer people around, so things are a little quieter.
That’s not to say there’s nothing for you to do. With Ivy Tech, there’s always something going on.
Earlier this month, about 100 students, faculty, and friends piled on two buses, watched some “Despicable Me” and “How to Train Your Dragon,” and traveled to Sandusky, Ohio, for a day of coasters and sun at Cedar Point. One of the College’s most popular bus trips, this sold out quickly. Even if you couldn’t make it, check out some of the great photos.
Tomorrow, Ivy Tech Northeast becomes a part of a five-year Fort Wayne tradition: It plays host to South Side Fest, and we want to see your photos.
South Side Fest will run from 12:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Public Safety Academy: Ivy Tech South Campus (7602 Patriot Crossing). Go dance; eat; get a haircut; check out the car, truck, and motorcycle show. Hang out with the businesses and community members from the area. It’s expected to attract 2,500 people, so don’t get left out.
While you’re there, pull out your phone and snap a selfie or a pic of your favorite event. Then send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short caption and your full name and major or role at Ivy Tech. You may see your photos in a future edition of “Inside,” which is Ivy Tech’s community and alumni magazine, or other Ivy Tech Northeast material.
