A Post-Election Letter to Our Students, November-December 2016

Nearly Move-in Ready!

Nearly Move-in Ready!
The Founders Hall project is taking great steps forward. We’ve all watched in anticipation as a beautiful new building has taken shape across the lot from Technology Hall. The future home of NVCC’s Allied Health programs is also shaping up on the inside, as seen in these photos provided by Provost and Senior Dean of Administration, James Troup. Troup was excited to report that, “State-of-the art equipment has begun to arrive. Many of the rooms are now taking on a finished look.”  As furniture has been moved into Founders, the vision of what will be has started to become the reality of what is.

A Shocking Journalistic Loss

A Shocking Journalistic Loss
“A voice of calm, reason, and credibility” summarizes a wide consensus on the career of late newspaper and broadcast journalist Gwen Ifill. Ms. Ifill passed away November 14, at 61 years of age from endometrial cancer. Perhaps the biggest way in which Ifill gained recognition is in overcoming race and gender barriers in journalism as a Black female.

Editor's Notebook: Dedicated to Unity

Editor's Notebook: Dedicated to Unity
November has seen the end of the most divisive election in recent American history. With an outcome as extremely close as this one, the emotional toll is high. That is one reason The Tamarack staff have decided to focus on motivation and unity in December. Staying motivated in a harsh political climate, such as the one we now inhabit, is vital. America’s need for intelligent, hardworking leaders of all backgrounds has never been greater. It is up to us to be that backbone of society, to work as hard as necessary to secure the home we all love.

One Book, Two Campuses, Three Events

One Book, Two Campuses, Three Events
On November 2, One Book Committee student representative, Nicole Hayes, moderated a Student Success Panel in L501. Sharing the story of her own academic success, she was accompanied by SGA Secretary Levi Reynolds, SGA President Keila Franco, and student and veteran Clarence Thompson. The event was created to encourage students to focus on their own success—whether academic or personal—as stories of success come from different backgrounds.

For Public Safety, Dial: 58112 & 58113

For Public Safety, Dial: 58112 & 58113
An error in our November issue created an opportunity to share some important information. As you may know, the procedure for making on campus calls changed this semester. When using a campus phone, it’s no longer possible to dial only 4 digits. Each call must include five digits. This applies to dialing Public Safety as well. The new numbers have been in effect for a few weeks. For emergencies, call 58112. Routine Public Safety calls must be made by dialing 58113. If using your own phone, the full numbers are 203-575-8112 and 203-575-8113.

EDITORIAL: Open Letter to All

Within the halls of NVCC I see a troubling trend: physical and mental intimidation. Young men push women into walls, or hold their backpacks, causing them to trip. Psychological manipulation has also been witnessed as one student continuously tried to convince another they needed to be in a relationship.

Women in S.T.E.M

The S.T.E.M. disciplines—Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics—inform daily life. Science explains why blueberries are blue, predicts weather patterns, and helps us weigh dietary options. Technology, from smartphones to computers, continues to grow more innovative and expansive. Engineers design bridges and dams, and create everything from fuel-efficient automobiles to agricultural robots. Mathematics is also used in everyday life; we measure, calculate and estimate frequently.
