Real SGA Elections

America is known for many things, but the characteristic of this country that brings the most pride is democracy. Since 1776, America has thrived on this principle. The best way to maintain a democracy is to have elections. Elections give the common people a chance to voice their opinion and make an informed decision about who should lead their town, state, or country.

I-84 to Widen

I-84 to Widen
For some students, the drive to NVCC can be hectic, especially for those who have to travel through Waterbury via I-84 West. The traffic is unpredictable. In one moment the highway is clear, the next moment red break lights are glaring and traffic is backed up for what seems like an endless stretch. And why? Of course you wait in your vehicle, blasting music in an attempt to calm yourself only to find out that you waited in 30 minutes of traffic for no reason. No construction, no accident, nothing. Welcome to Waterbury.

Editor's Notebook: May

I’ve been working with The Tamarack for as long as I have been in college. It made me talk to people. It made me write constantly. It kept me up at night doing work. It also gave me a home and a family I will always remember.
