Disconnecting on Social Media

The use of social media in the United States of America has exploded in popularity in recent years. Social media has taken its place as a main component of modern life. It has practically replaced face to face conversations, phone calls, and letters as our primary form of communication. Many people prefer this to actual interactions due to convenience and the ability to put forth the image of themselves that they want people to see. While it has become extremely popular, the increasing use of social media could...

Reasons to Reflect on Anniversary of Boston Marathon Bombings

It’s been said that “The gloves came off on September 11.”  What happened to the New York City World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the crash site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania jolted a nation from its sleepy illusion; it was an illusion that life would continue undisturbed while their government conducted its covert operations around the world.  

The horror returned to Boston, Massachusetts, and the disbelief that, after all our military and clandestine activities to fight back against the perceived threat, something could still come from an unknown place. Americans didn’t expect...

We Can All Be Boston Strong

I am in no way a fan of baseball or sports in general but I found myself watching the 2013 World Series. When I saw the “Boston Strong” logo cut into the grass at Fenway Park my heart clenched, and before I knew, it tears were running down my face. I just sat there watching as these survivors, these people who defeated the odds, walked out with their heads held high. I realized at that moment...

On First Anniversary, NVCC Remembers Boston Marathon Bombing

On April 15, 2013, the nation was sent into shock when a pair of bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. A year later, the effects are still felt and almost everybody remembers their reaction to the tragedy. 

To commemorate those who lost their limbs or lives, a ceremony will be held at the Hynes Veteran’s Memorial Convention Center in Boston on April 15th, and ceremonies will continue up to

Dogs Have Feelings Too

Many would argue that dogs are man’s (and woman’s) best friend, while others may see the vicious, darker side of dogs. Those who see that darker side tend to group certain breeds, using stereotypes because of one misbehaved dog. It shouldn’t be that all dogs of a certain breed are judged and subjected to blame because of one dog that was mishandled, mistreated, and trained improperly by human hands. As much as humans can make dogs “man’s best friend,” humans are also to blame for the dog’s mistreatment and one becoming “man’s worst enemy.”

Waves of Sympathy

In the event of an earthquake, the epicenter is the point on the Earth’s surface directly above the focus or hypocenter and in most cases is the area where the most damage occurs. From the hypocenter, seismic waves propagate spherically outward, decreasing in intensity the further removed they become. In a way, the same thing happens when great tragedies strike. The way in which we react to them is also comparable. As the potential...

White Lies, Not so Innocent

Everyone has told white lies, and will continue to tell them until the end of time. What makes a white lie socially acceptable is the fact that everyone has told one, either out of politeness or to save themselves some hassle. However, the fact that they are so acceptable does not make them morally correct.

While the white lie is probably the most commonly told lie, it is definitely the most dangerous one...

No Longer Silent

No Longer Silent

Troubled. Distant. Heavyhearted. Forlorn. I wish there were other words to describe him. I wish every thought of him didn’t make me sad. I wish I could write a joyful, cheerful story about a war vet, but I can’t because it wouldn’t be his story. His story is one of courage, triumph, and heartache. His story, though not pretty, is one that must be told.

From the SGA President: February

If it weren’t for NVCC, I would be in my hometown working a nine-to-five job not knowing what the rest of the world had to offer. More importantly, I would be unaware of what I had to offer the world. I believe I would have eventually enlisted in the Navy. At the time, I thought it would offer me the best options for a career after I served. I also would have gotten to travel widely. Truth is I never learned how to swim, so thankfully those plans never worked out.

I thank God for the plan that did work out. As I walk the hallways...

Both two-year institutions had celebrated athletic pasts that gained national attention. Following the merger, NVCC had a brief history in athletics as well.

Change the World During Spring Break

For years, spring break has been synonymous with wild parties and alcohol. But students also have the opportunity to do something important and everlasting with their time off.

United Way, Habitat for Humanity, Project Abroad, and United Planet, among others, offer programs for students to work in a different state or country that week. Students get the fun and the sun, while lending a helping hand to someone in need.

In 2014, volunteer opportunities will take place throughout the U.S. and in countries like...

Regional Advisory Council Member Cites Transportation Needs in "Letter to the Editor"

"Waterbury's need for transit, other aid must be heard. The high unemployment rate, the lack of mass-transit services after 6 p.m., and cuts to our regional Naugatuck Valley Community College leaves Waterbury more vulnerable to further economic-development setbacks than ever before."
