Ford Hall in the Whalen Music Center. This is a uniquely Ithaca and Ithaca College performance – based celebration. We hope you can attend.



Friday 10 Nov 2017  commencing at 0600 – The Cornell ROTC Brigade will be conducting Marine Corps Birthday PT
Inside Barton Hall celebrating the 242nd U.S. Marine Corp birthday.   It is supposed to be very cold on Friday morning.  So if you plan to join us, I would dress appropriately and bring your own water source. There will be a cake presented at the end of the physical training session around 0700 in Barton Hall.  The plan is to run to five different locations around campus (Schoellkopf, Kane Track, Oak tree across the soccer field on Tower Road, and Barton Hall) doing a series of exercises with a pause for a Marine Option Midshipmen to speak about a Marine and/or historical event.  Along the route, we will execute a series of exercises with the goal of executing 242 reps at each location.
