How Transfer Students Can Stand Out

On November 12, 2014, NVCC held its annual fall transfer fair in Café West. Dozens of representatives from schools all around the state were there to answer any questions students had regarding transferring from NVCC to their college. As in past years, the focus was for students to get prepared and be informed about their options.

Reverse Transfers Are Quite Common

The norm in transferring schools is to go from a two-year to a four-year institution. However, more students are opting for what is called the “reverse transfer,” going from a four-year to a two-year school.

A Taste of Southern Punk from CT

If you walk the streets of New Haven during Saturday night, you may hear the sound of a southern punk rock band called Rusty Things. This band can be best described as a blend of country, blues, and punk rock.

A Protest Is Not a Riot

The fall into madness comes at a low price. Perhaps it is the uncertainty of language or usage of it that has many confused. All it takes is friction. Then the labels begin.

CT Elections: Mixed Student Reactions

On the eve of Election Day 2014, it seemed like deja-vu in the Connecticut gubernatorial race. Just like in 2010, it was Foley vs. Malloy in a heated battle for the Governor’s seat in which it really could have gone either way, according to Quinnipiac Polls. As of the day before the election, the poll said that both Democratic candidate Dannel Malloy and Republican candidate Tom Foley had an even 43% of the vote a piece.

Under Pressure, Colleges Update Sexual Assault Policies

Nationwide, there has been a lot of talk, and action, on college campuses against sexual assault. Last month, the state of California passed a bill that requires its colleges to define “yes means yes” when investigating claims of sexual assault. With this bill, the definition of consent requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”

Take Pride and Take Care

Naugatuck Valley Community College is a well-respected school that is ranked among the best community colleges in Connecticut. NVCC offers open enrollment to over 7,000 students, low in-state tuition, and a large amount of highly qualified professors and advisors. Founded in 1967, the campus has seen many generations of graduates, and in many cases it carries the wear and tear of its years on the surface.

Editor's Notebook: November

A coat. A flower. A ceramic snowman. These items signify the holidays for me. Movies and shopping malls may try to tell us what the holidays are and how they should look, which can distort our focus on what they mean to us.  

Much too often Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Hanukkah are all stereotyped. According to Macy’s department store, everyone has a turkey for Thanksgiving or an ornately decorated coniferous tree standing in their living room during December.

Many Young People Abstain from Voting

The results are in. Most young people ages 18-29 have chosen to forego their constitutional right to vote.  According to CIRCLE, the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, the Connecticut voter turnout during the 2012 election fell to an all-time low of 21.6% for young people 18-29.

Give Thanks and Give to Others

Give Thanks and Give to Others

In 1620 a group of 102 brave colonists set sail on a 66 day harrowing journey across the Atlantic Ocean, landing on Plymouth Rock in Cape Cod. The colonists befriended a community of Wampanoag Indians, who taught them how to plant and cultivate corn. In the fall of 1621, they all gathered together to celebrate the first harvest in a three-day feast that is now known as Thanksgiving.

Respiratory Club Fights for Smoke-Free Campus

A hot button issue at NVCC right now is whether people should be allowed to smoke on campus.
NVCC is currently a smoker-friendly campus, with designated smoking areas behind Technology Hall, on the 2nd Floor Ekstrom garage and on the plaza. There are also rules that prevent people from smoking within a certain distance of the main entryways. These rules seem to be rarely enforced, however, and now students from a number of clubs are speaking out.

Playing Video Games Like a Girl

Playing Video Games Like a Girl

To all male gamers who have ever encountered a female gamer: Yes, she can probably beat you on your favorite map in Call of Duty. Yes, she really is female. No, she doesn’t care for your opinion about her playing video games. No, she isn’t there for your entertainment. She is there for her own, and deserves to be treated like a fellow gamer, regardless of her sex.

Is Recycling Worth It?

Millions of Americans sort recyclables from their trash, waiting for large, noisy trucks to come pick up their materials. From there, the materials are brought to a processing facility, where everything is organized and crushed into smaller pieces. Then, these goods are refined and transformed into another product that is ready to be put on shelves for consumers to buy.
