I haven’t put IC in my will yet?
I started my Friday morning the same way I always do: procrastinating, thinking about post-grad plans by doing any other activity I can think of. After taking out the trash, cleaning my car, and responding to my aunt’s email wishing me a “Happy New Years,” I started running options until I remembered, ‘Wait, we have a website. I should probably look at that at least once before I graduate.’ Little did I know that what I thought was going to be a five minute excursion would turn into a full on epiphany when I stumbled upon our college’s best kept secret – I can bequest a charitable gift to Ithaca in my will. Say whaaaaa?
Obviously I didn’t believe it. I mean, it’s just too good to be true. But it is. I scrolled down and found this gem:
And here I was thinking that my biggest challenge in life was getting a job. Sorry but my resume’s gonna have to go on hold. I have bigger life questions now starting with: What am I going to bequest to Ithaca College after I’m dead and gone? Should I leave the tapestry I bought in freshman year to identify me as a free spirit or my overexposed CP1 film so future incoming freshmen don’t feel too intimidated? I know the obvious answer is money (I’m looking at you, Roy H. Park), but I feel like I should set that aside for my fictional children because I don’t want them to feel like I’m picking favorites. I could try something a little more personal. There’s my collection of Wired magazines that I read in all my 3-hour film theory classes instead of partaking in the groundbreaking discussion on whether or not Citizen Kane really is the greatest movie of all time. I can also see my childhood beanie baby collection sitting nicely next to Rod Sterling’s Emmys.
Wait, can I leave my student debt?
