Naugatuck Valley Community College Newspaper, Honored by the Society of Professional Journalists 2 June 2017

Naugatuck Valley Community College Newspaper, Honored by the Society of Professional Journalists

For the fourth consecutive year, NVCC’s student newspaper, The Tamarack, has been honored by the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists for excellence in campus reporting. The Tamarack faculty advisor, Associate Professor of English, Steve Parlato, commented that “I’m excited that this year six of our seven awards are in writing categories, and we swept one category, General Column, with first, second, and third place recognition. It’s also significant, I think, that only two Colleges were honored this year.”

Congratulations, Graduates! 1 May 2017

Congratulations, Graduates!

“It’s hard to believe the time has come to graduate. Four years I’ve spent at NVCC, but it wasn’t until my third year I really felt like I had a place here. Joining The Tamarack in fall 2015 was the best decision. For the first time, my work was published for people to see, and I felt a sense of pride. Winning an award for one of my pieces in spring 2016 blew my mind. This last year has been by far my busiest, but also the most rewarding. The opportunity to become copy editor has been great, and confirmed that going into editing is what I want. I’d like to personally thank Faculty Advisor, Professor Steve Parlato and current Editor-in-Chief, Chris Gordon. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for your support, encouragement, generosity, and caring kindness. While I may be leaving NVCC, this is not farewell.”

One Rough Hundred Days

By the time this article hits stands on May 1st, we will have just passed the 100-day mark of the 45th President’s term in office. It has been a period fraught with drama and division as the new administration seeks to make its mark on our nation by systematically chipping away at freedom and equality. The truth is, in such a short time, our new leader has disrupted and adversely affected countless lives, not just in America, but around the world. 
Legal Discrimination? 1 May 2017

Legal Discrimination?

North Carolina’s history of anti-LGBTQ policies continued with introduction of House Bill 780, titled, “Uphold Historical Marriage Act,” on Tuesday, April 11, by NC House Republicans. It was designed to restore the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriages. This is not North Carolina’s first attempt to deny same-sex marriage, as witnessed in 2012’s Amendment One. Both policies are deeply rooted in conservative attitudes toward the institution of marriage. On the other hand, it’s important to note that bills are not laws until passed by House, Senate, ratified, and if required, signed by the Governor. Thus, opposing voices have had a chance to raise their concerns with this bill.
Quite an Oasis 1 May 2017

Quite an Oasis

It was no April Fools’ joke when NVCC’s cafeteria was transformed into a virtual desert oasis to usher in the new month. Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2, the College once again hosted the CT Cactus Show, which drew large crowds—including two visitors from Westfield, Massachusetts. Café West was a sea of spiky green, as several vendors displayed their wares, both the prickly and succulent varieties, along with garden statuary, birdhouses, and all things, well, garden-ish. Plants and supplies were available for sale, and by the looks of the happy sellers and buyers, the event was a great success.

How I Went to NASA (And How You Could Too!)

This April I was fortunate enough to travel to NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland Ohio, where I, along with 42 other community college students, from all over the Midwest and New England, participated in 2017’s NASA Aerospace Scholars Program. During the four-day program we formed teams, in which we established fictional aerospace companies that were tasked with coming up with a business plan, designing a prototype rover, and competing for a NASA contract for the next Mars rover mission. 
Raising Awareness 1 May 2017

Raising Awareness

Wednesday, April 19th, the Recovery Society held a Drug and Alcohol Awareness Day in Café West from 1100 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. This well-attended event, which was open to students, faculty, and staff, provided an opportunity to learn about substance abuse, drug screening and treatment options. Many students participated in the drunk driving simulation, watched a powerful video, and visited numerous information tables. Members of the Recovery Society were on hand to answer questions and provide information about different substances, their dangers, and available treatment for those struggling with dependency.

Stem Cell Advancements

Stem cell research has yielded results within the last few years, from developments in growing “cultured meat” to potentially producing unlimited amounts of blood. These are not intended as replacements for what is currently used, but as an addition or plan B when quantities are limited.

Justice for All / Social Justice Series: Starting Fall 2017

Recently, the FBI and all major news networks have reported an increase in hate crimes.  Within our own community, we have heard from both students and faculty who have personally witnessed or experienced displays of disrespect at school or in their neighborhoods.  We recognize these challenging times as an opportunity for both intervention and conversation, so that we can engage in dialogue, raise awareness, and cultivate critical thinking. In that spirit we are excited to announce the launch of a Social Justice Series beginning next fall. The Social Justice Series will consist of multiple events each semester where students, faculty, and staff will have the chance to engage in respectful dialogue about issues pertaining to social justice. Please be on the lookout for future events and opportunities. More details to come!

Editorial: There once was a time...

Like Earth revolving around the Sun, humans now revolve around technology. Not all technology is bad, of course; much good comes from it. However, since society has gotten so reliant on innovations, many seem to have forgotten there was a time before all this even existed. 
Continued Awareness 1 May 2017

Continued Awareness

I enjoy advocating for cystic fibrosis awareness, so I felt honored when asked to speak to the sophomore class at Naugatuck High School last month about my own experience with CF. A genetically inherited illness, CF targets the respiratory and digestive systems. 
A Morning with Hanna Pearlstein Marcus 1 May 2017

A Morning with Hanna Pearlstein Marcus

Naugatuck Valley Community College held a Writers’ Conference on April 6, 2017, which featured a morning presentation and Q & A session by New England-based author Hanna Pearlstein Marcus. Marcus wrote the memoir Sidonia’s Thread—The Secrets of a Mother and Daughter Sewing a New Life in America which recounts the story of how she and her mother created a new beginning in the US after World War II. The author also spoke about the sequel, Surviving Remnant- Memories of the Jewish Greenhorns in 1950s America, published March 1, 2017.

Happenings @ Other Colleges

On May 3rd, New York’s Bard College will host a “National Climate Seminar: US Climate Science, Challenges, and Opportunities,” by Penn State Atmospheric Science Professor Michael Mann. Mann was part of a collaboration that won a 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, was awarded a 2012 Hans Oeschger Medal from the European Geosciences Union, and received the National Conservation Achievement Award for Science from the National Wildlife Federation in 2013. Also a published author, Mann’s latest is a satire, The Madhouse Effect. Regarding the environment, Mann stated Trump will “basically take us backwards, back towards our dependence on fossil fuels at a time when the rest of the world is moving ahead and understands that we need to get off fossil fuels.”
Editor's Notebook: Only Memories 1 May 2017

Editor's Notebook: Only Memories

I am sitting here wracking my brain trying to find the right words to share. Ideas are swirling around one after another, individual memories of this school year trying hard to make themselves the dominant image. All of them are equally important though. And all of them are thanks to you, the supporters of your community college’s newspaper.

Applause, Applause!

Hello, theater lovers. If, like me, you enjoy supporting local actors and seeing well-produced shows, then spring 2017 was the season for you here at NVCC. Two shows, opening a week apart, were offered by the Stage Society. 
Learning to Care 1 May 2017

Learning to Care

The LABSS Division sponsored a Human Services/Pre-Social Work Alumni Evening on Wednesday March 22nd. Thirteen alumni attended, and the evening finished with pizza and time to mingle. Current Human Services/Pre-Social Work students were invited to hear about the path the alumni have taken since graduating from NVCC. Alumni also offered pieces of advice, such as: “learn APA formatting; it is important,” and “be open to different experiences because you may end up practicing social work with an entirely different population than you expected.” 
SGA President: Fond Farewell 1 May 2017

SGA President: Fond Farewell

We are finally nearing the end of the spring 2017 semester. As we all know, with warm weather comes the temptation to slack off on our studies. But with exams coming up, I encourage you all to study hard, and don’t lose focus! Still, there’s plenty of opportunities for fun with all the upcoming events the SGA has to offer, such as Spring Fling, and the Leadership Banquet! The SGA has brought some fresh ideas to the table for these events we’re sure you will enjoy. I know I will! 
Making a Splash (at Yale) 1 May 2017

Making a Splash (at Yale)

Last month, four of my classmates from NVCC’s Physical Therapy Assistant Program joined me to participate in an event called Splash at Yale – an opportunity to teach 7th through 12th graders a topic of our choice at Yale University. This event takes place in April and is organized by Yale students. When signing up, college students can suggest virtually any topic to teach. You can even select the students’ grade level and the number of students in your class. 
Faces in the Crowd: Lessons Learned 1 May 2017

Faces in the Crowd: Lessons Learned

If there is anything I can take away from my time at NVCC, there are two things that have reinforced my idea of what would make me a better person. One is to carefully acknowledge the everyday faces that are often taken for granted. Another is this: at every height I achieve I must be careful not to slip up and instead discipline myself to work harder at making my dreams realized.
