How Transfer Students Can Stand Out

On November 12, 2014, NVCC held its annual fall transfer fair in Café West. Dozens of representatives from schools all around the state were there to answer any questions students had regarding transferring from NVCC to their college.

Reverse Transfers Are Quite Common

The norm in transferring schools is to go from a two-year to a four-year institution. However, more students are opting for what is called the “reverse transfer,” going from a four-year to a two-year school.

A Taste of Southern Punk from CT

If you walk the streets of New Haven during Saturday night, you may hear the sound of a southern punk rock band called Rusty Things. This band can be best described as a blend of country, blues, and punk rock.

Gifts that Outlast the Season

Gifts that Outlast the Season

It’s time to play Santa Clause again.  Gift lists are long and family and friends are anxious to see what they’re getting.  Even though it’s one of the best times of the year, it’s also one of the holidays that cost the most.  

According to U.S. News, the holidays come at a time when many college students’ bank accounts are at or near empty because of the expenses of the fall semester.  After all those expenses, students are still trying to afford holiday gifts.  Buying a gift for everyone makes things overwhelming.

As I Was Saying: December

Everyone has had that moment when they are trapped by an older person or relative who starts sentences with “In my days, we didn’t have.” Then they tell you a story about how your generation is this and doesn’t appreciate that. What you probably got from the story, if you listened, is that the older generations see ours as ungrateful and impatient know-it-alls.

Introverts for the Win

Many people lump introversion and shyness into one category, even though there is a huge distinction between the two traits. Both an introvert and someone who is shy may be sitting around the house on a Friday night. However, the shy person may not prefer to be there, while the introvert feels more energized alone. The introvert actually prefers staying at home reading a book versus going out to a wild party with friends.
