On August 8, 2018, a new crop of aspiring ODs arrived for Move-In Day at ICO. The Class of 2022 is made up of 161 new and returning students. To date, they have participated in some of ICO’s favorite traditions. Orientation went smoothly, thanks to the many staff members and students who are always generous with their time. The ICOlympics were heated, but the Class of 2020 took home the ultimate gold.
The White Coat Ceremony featured many “firsts.” Mark Colip, OD ’92, spoke for the first time as ICO president. Erik Mothersbaugh, OD ’12, joined him for the first time as Dean of Student Affairs. We also premiered a live video feed on social media, allowing loved ones far and wide to witness the event in real time. “Like” ICO on Facebook to see livestreaming of future events!
We especially appreciate the alumni who visited campus to participate in the White Coat Ceremony. The following new students were coated by ICO graduates:
> Syed Jaffery, coated by sister Syeda Fatima, OD ’16
> Maxime Morier-Roy, coated by cousin Marco Kosowski, OD ’17
> Connor Robbs, coated by mother Laura Giancola, OD ’90
