First Impressions of Spring 2012

So I’ve experienced my first three weeks as an upper junior at Nyack College. From a personal standpoint, college is definitely easier: I’ve improved on budgeting my time, I participate in more student life activities, and my agenda in the classroom is to extract as much knowledge from the professor as possible. Networking is great too; I know quite a few people in my school either involved in or with experience in the field I seek to enter after graduation.

At Nyack College NYC, there’s plenty going on. Seniors are preparing for graduation while juniors and below are preparing to move to the new campus. The Office of Student Development (OSD) has upped the ante, introducing promotional audio/video projects that combine staff and students. And the clubs? Active at an all-time high, while the number of clubs continues to grow.

Most notable are the Nyack Experience sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Because NYC is a commuter campus, chapel is voluntary, not mandatory. Although less people can attend, those in attendance actually choose to be there. This makes for an exciting, energetic atmosphere every week, including the evening that Dr. Michael Scales, Nyack College’s President, spoke at the campus to a large audience. Large isn’t an understatement; I had to keep pulling out chairs to accomodate the attendees!

There’s plenty positive going on at Nyack NYC, culminating in Fall 2012 with the new campus at Battery Park. As Nyack College’s administration continue to put quality time and effort into our NYC campus, God continues to bless their work and build up a new generation of invigorated students excited about their futures—yes, even in the midst of a recession.

Ever had the feeling that a decision or phase in your life was just meant to be? Nyack College, although not my first college choice, fits this description perfectly; in hindsight, coming to this school is just one of the many “best-decision-of-my-life” outcomes I can’t take credit for. I’ve been afforded the chance to take my academics to new levels with the leadership and inspiration from certain professors, network with fellow Christians learning and participating in the field of business,help found and maintain a club, and now, blog to my fellow Nyack College students! I plan to bring quality, thought-provoking articles to the table while having a lot of fun.

My experiences have left me convinced that without God, my life would be nothing but either a nice collection of mantras and fine-tuned ideologies or a sad statistic. With this in mind, I involve my Creator in every aspect of my life—including this blog. Happy reading!
