The Heartland Brewery on W. 43rd St. in Manhattan was once again the venue for our annual dinner with New York City Ithacan alumni, held in conjunction with the spring National College Media Convention. There was great food and great service, as always.

Twenty alumni turned out out to see old friends and meet new ones, as they interacted with one another and with seven current Ithacan staff members fresh off a victory in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Crown Award competition at the convention.
