Unacceptable

Unacceptable
The accompanying image illustrates a recent case of on-campus hate speech documented by a Tamarack staff member. The Student Alliance for Gender and Sexual Diversity, one of NVCC’s many clubs, has the goal of promoting inclusiveness and acceptance. To deface their flyer with the statement “Theres (sic) only two genders” and the phrase “Liberal Morons” exhibits the sort of small-mindedness that has no place at an institution of higher learning.

S.T.E.A.M. Engines Go Choo-Choo

S.T.E.A.M. Engines Go Choo-Choo
While S.T.E.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, S.T.E.A.M. applies those same core principles, but adds Arts to the mix. The Arts can apply to all of these subjects, which is why there’s so much debate in trying to change the program.

New York Talks Free College

Last month, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced an initiative to make a college education completely free for middle-class students residing in New York. Under Cuomo’s proposal, NY residents whose yearly income, or whose family’s yearly income, is $125,000 or less will be able to attend any two-year state community college or any four-year state university tuition-free.

Editor's Notebook: Make America Great

Editor's Notebook: Make America Great
The newly installed President of the United States has said some horribly insensitive things. That does not mean certain sound bites can’t have impact, though. “Make America Great Again,” is one such phrase. For many US citizens, this is an insult. Racism, sexism, bigotry of all sorts, have led many ask: What was so great about America to begin with?

EDITORIAL: Inner Beauty, an Open Letter

Nature, psychology, bodily functions? These are theories that relate to why we judge people based on looks. Upon first glance, we rate someone on our personal scale, from bottom of the barrel to Greek god/goddess. But what about underneath? Is it okay to solely judge a person based on looks without getting to know them? This is mostly focused on physical attraction, and/or sexual desire.

K-9 Heroes

Service dogs are companions who help people with disabilities ranging from blindness or paralysis to epilepsy, autism, and others. Not just dogs can be service animals, but they are the most common guide animals. There are actually several types of service dogs for a variety of disabilities. Some assist people with physical limitations, including wheelchair users. They are known as Mobility Assistance Dogs, trained to retrieve fallen objects, close and open doors, and even turn lights on and off. Depending on weight and strength, some even wear harnesses in order to pull wheelchairs.

SGA President: A Hearty Welcome

SGA President: A Hearty Welcome
To my fellow returning students, it is with a warm heart that I welcome you back to the NVCC campus for another semester, and to our new students, welcome to your first semester here at NVCC! My grandmother once told me the greatest favor you can do for yourself in life is to surround yourself with good people who want you to succeed, who will reinforce your good habits, and push you to do better. I am pleased to inform you (if you don’t already know) that you are now on a campus surrounded by such people.
