Students learn about how to pay for college
College students and their parents who need help to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) came to the annual College Goal Sunday workshop hosted by Naugatuck Valley Community College on Sunday, October 23. For prospective students and parents who haven’t filled out the application before, it can prove a daunting and often confusing task, so the event is aimed at simplifying the process.
On a bright, warm autumn afternoon, 60 staff, faculty, and students walked to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The walk, held on October 19, began at the College’s Atrium Plaza and was sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Student Activities Department of NVCC. The SGA sold t-shirts featuring the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation logo and the NVCC logo on the front and the team name “Chelsea’s Champions” on the back. The shirts and team were created to honor a student who suffers from the illness and to raise money in her honor. The shirts, which have been on sale since September, are $10 each and all proceeds raised through their sale will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Walkers completed one lap around the NVCC campus and celebrated the end of their walk with an after party where refreshments and music by New York-based EDM Trap band Trillmatik were enjoyed. The walk is part of the SGA/Student Activities “give back to the community initiative” which runs the entire academic year.
Naugatuck Valley Community College inducted seven new students into the prestigious President’s Circle during an October 21st ceremony held in the Technology Hall Dining Room. Membership represents the highest honor a student may receive while matriculating at the College. Inductees have a minimum GPA of 3.4 and they represent a select group of outstanding achievers who serve as the College’s student ambassadors. President’s Circle ambassadors have the opportunity to attend major college events with the President and/or her Cabinet and lend voice to their experiences as NVCC students.
Work and family obligations often compete with dreams of going to college. Naugatuck Valley Community College has created an affordable solution. Through the College’s new part-time accelerated weekend Business Management Certificate and/or degree program, students who work full-time can get an associate degree or certificate in Business Management. The new program offers the opportunity to complete a fully transferrable associate degree in two or three years, by attending part-time classes that meet on weekends. At both the Waterbury and Danbury campuses, classes will be held on Friday evenings, Saturdays (Sundays-Waterbury campus only.) Financial aid is available for qualified students.
