ISC Activities

The ISC has a fantastic October planned for you. The ISC will hold its first on-campus event since going remote in March 2020. We are super excited to see everyone in person again and have some seasonal fun at our annual Halloween party later this month. There will be pumpkin carving, snacks and treats, and prizes for the best pumpkin carvings. We will provide the pumpkins and carving tools. You just need to bring your inspiration for this socially distanced event on the ISC Patio on Thursday, October 28 from 1-5pm. We can’t wait to see you there.

CARES Act Grant Payments

Did you apply and get approved for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) CARES Act Grant worth up to $875 this Fall? The federal government created the new grant to assist students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. ISC students were eligible to apply and many did just that. If you were one of the students approved for the grant, the disbursement of funds is coming very soon. Starting Monday, October 11th, you can pick up your CARES Act Grant check at the Cashier Window in the Student Services building. If you were approved for the grant, do not forget to retrieve your check in person with a photo ID later this month.
