Lady Liberty

Lady Liberty
March is dedicated to women, and I would like to celebrate one of our nation’s most important: the giant green woman in New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty. With torch high, a symbolic guide to the shores of freedom, Lady Liberty is the embodiment of the American Dream. This is the full text of the 1883 Emma Lazarus sonnet installed on a plaque at the monument’s base.

Editor's Notebook: Taking Stock

Editor's Notebook: Taking Stock
Now that we’re settling into the spring semester routine, it’s about time we take a moment to reflect. Most of us have had our first exams, and now have a fair idea where we’re headed. I trust we all have plans in place to strengthen our weak spots, and congratulate ourselves on the points that will carry us through to May.

Author Talk

Author Talk
Following his October Confluencia reading, I interviewed our own Steve Parlato on his writing process, teaching, and his upcoming novel, THE PRECIOUS DREADFUL, out September 2017 from Simon & Schuster. We caught up—unfortunately, in virtual form; we’re both over-scheduled—to chat about Steve’s appearance at Teen BookFest by the Bay this February.

EveryOne4Equality

Last month, The Tamarack ran an article regarding the vandalism of an NVCC club flyer. The flyer, posted by the Student Alliance for Gender and Sexual Diversity, was defaced with the comment, “Theres only two genders, Liberal morons.” The club, who have since changed their name to EveryOne4Equality (or E14E for short), reached out to us in response.

SGA President: Almost Halfway

SGA President: Almost Halfway
Whether you’re a new student starting a fresh chapter, or a transfer student continuing your education, I wish you the best as we approach the midway point of this spring semester. It’s been an exciting one so far, with the expansion of the Danbury Campus, and the opening of Founders Hall. Can you believe it’s already March?

Women March

Women March
This month hosts a maybe-not-so celebrated holiday, International Women’s Day. This year, many women will celebrate this holiday in protest. The organizers behind the Women’s March in Washington are calling on women to go on strike on March 8th–showing the world what a day without women will look like.

Editorial: Show Up or Shut Up!

Hey you, Inconsiderate Jerk who doesn’t know how clocks work! I’m trying to learn here, and that’s kinda hard to do when you march your dumb ass in twenty minutes late, interrupting everything. People who do it once, this doesn’t concern you. I’m only addressing those fools who make a habit of being “fashionably late.”
