Familiar Face

Familiar Face
What a special honor to be represented in the December Tamarack. An international student from Vietnam, I came to NVCC three years ago. It was meant to be. Far from family and friends, I was soon welcomed as a member of a new family. Today, I consider NVCC a second home.

Student Guide to Choosing a Presidential Candidate

Student Guide to Choosing a Presidential Candidate
To an average college student, the 2016 race for the presidency may not be a priority. Being a full or part time student isn’t easy -- balancing work, family, and the struggles of life -- so the everyday millennial may not have time for keeping up with all things political.

Holiday Favorites

There are thousands of Christmas specials and movies, every type, category, and ending imaginable. Each year more appear; comedies where quirky parents attempt the perfect family dinner and chaos ensues. Dog eats the turkey; lonely sister falls for neighborhood cop.

Bringing the Awesome Home

Bringing the Awesome Home
Reflecting on all the learning that’s occurred this semester, I look back even further to share my takeaways from the SIGGRAPH 2015 conference, the main reason for my adventure. Research facilities, major companies, independents and students all contributed to this event. There was so much to take in it was truly overwhelming. I felt I got my money’s worth out of the conference after the first day. The following days were just as incredible with so many unexpected highlights.

Lady Capulet Speaks

I always said if I were to play a role in Romeo and Juliet, I would want to portray Lady Capulet. So, it was an absolute pleasure to make my NVCC stage debut last month in that role. This is my first semester at NVCC, and prior to casting, I had no experience with Professor Tedesco. Going into this show, many cast members had worked with him for years. I was one of the only newbies, so it was unnerving joining so many cast members who were already close-knit. However, those feelings were quickly extinguished by the wonderful cast and crew.

Know Your (Human) Rights!

You read the title correctly, Human Rights. December is Universal Human Rights Month, and The Tamarack, in solidarity with people suffering oppression worldwide—and here at home—recognizes the continued fight for basic human rights. “Human Rights” is a global term many have difficulty defining. What are human rights? Rights are privileges. Human rights are privileges granted all people by virtue of status as humans.

With State Budget Cuts, CT’s Future Darkens

With State Budget Cuts, CT’s Future Darkens
Connecticut is known as the Nutmeg State, but we’re equally famous for our outrageous cost of living. On a recent CNBC list, Connecticut ranked second highest in cost of living, behind only Hawaii. Many citizens are frustrated with the current financial situation in Connecticut, but sadly, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy recently announced another round of rescissions—over $100 million in spending cuts—as part of his new state budget plan.
