Hello Campus Slate Readers,
I hope everyone is having a great semester as we have reached the midway point of the spring semester with Spring Break just around the corner.
Inside our March issue we have a great variety of articles that you all will enjoy, one issue among college students for years has been involving drinking and with St. Patrick’s Day approaching this weekend, we have an article on what you should be aware about with alcoholic beverages. With the annual Job Fair approaching in a few weeks, we are preparing you this month for what you need to know as you get ready for this big event.
This month we highlight some individuals of the NYIT family who have made news on and off campus. The Campus Slate faculty advisor and Communication Arts Professor John Hanc along with his co authors from Harvard University released his 10th book in January, “Organize Your Mind, Organize Your Life” and they recently appeared at popular bookstore, Book Revue in Huntington to sign and discuss the novel. You will also meet Julia Garcia inside this issue, Julia is an NYIT graduate and former staff writer of Campus Slate and she released a novel as well this month.
Recently, the NYIT Architecture Program has made some news with work done on and off campus and you will read all about it inside the issue. In addition, we also preview this week’s Wednesday Night Flicks film “Meet John Doe” which will be shown on March 14th at 5:30pm in the de Seversky Center.
In sports, we preview the upcoming season for both the Baseball and Softball teams and introduce you to some of the Athletes from all our teams this spring whom are spotlighted in our returning segment “Bears to Watch.” Also in sports, Athletic Director Clyde Doughty recently hit a milestone in his NYIT Athletic career having been in his position now for 30 years and we take you in depth in what Clyde’s day is like along with a trip down memory lane of the past 30 years. On behalf of The Campus Slate, we congratulate Clyde on this milestone and for many more great years!
