Thoughts this Christmas

I’m sure you’ve already had your full of discourse about Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah already, but here’s one more opportunity to contemplate the reason for the season! Professor Bud DiFluri from Rockland campus sent a thought provoking message to students and gave me permission to reproduce it for this blog. Full house at the Radio City Music Hall on December 23rd. As in so many hours each day of the year, time in my “world’s messiest office” seems to take precedence over “real” life. Nearby are two houses, one fully decked with  Christmas lights, one with none, and the local … Continue reading

Back in Chicago

Back in Chicago again! This city is becoming a second hometown. So just like the previous semester, I took a trip straight to Chicago the day after my last final. This time I drove back with my sister & my brother-in-law, as well as a friend they invited to their trip to NY. The plan was to spend about four days in Illinois doing life with them. So far, so great. I’ve been meaning to get back into music making and drawing, so on Saturday, I spent nearly the entire day learning these crafts via the Internet. As a result, … Continue reading

End of the Semester

It’s that time of year- not only for the Holidays but for >FINALS< and the >END OF THE SEMESTER< Before the semester started, my fiance, JP, and I took this picture the day I moved into Nyack and the day he left for Seminary! Looking at it now really amazes me… I cannot believe how fast the semester went by! While I was going on my third year- JP was starting his first year as a Graduate student! Now as I write this, JP is driving home from Massachusetts & I’m studying for one more final that’s tomorrow!! He is … Continue reading

Pharmacology

Take a look. Laid out like that, they look kind of pretty- right? Well I’ll tell you this much: they are NOT fun to learn! One of my goals this winter break is to brush up on my pharmacology knowledge. There is so much to know! I don’t know how Pharmacists do it! A nurse definitely doesn’t have to know as much as they do! I am glad to be going into nursing, because in reality – we do have the Pharmacist to call when we have a question. But it is best to know on your own the types … Continue reading

Christmas Decorations

Christmas!!! I love decorating for Christmas. There is something about choosing just the right spot for an ornament. Don’t you agree? Oh, and the experience is 10x greater, when Christmas music is playing in the background. Here is the tree I put up and decorated this year. Another favorite Christmas pastime is sitting around the tree with it’s lights on, and all others off-relaxing with a hot drink. Mmmmm I can’t wait for finals to be over, so I can go home and do this!

Nyack College NYC Business Club

[iframe_youtube video=”GTduLJGCVgY”] “Did you know that Nyack College NYC has a club for business students and students who want to know about the business world?” It’s true—Nyack College Business Club NYC put in plenty of hours this semester. As we strengthened the club internally, we also managed to plan and host several events. Watch this video of us presenting “Personal Finance: Spending Your Money in a More Realistic Way.” Since that seminar, we’ve also presented on stock market investing as well as “Jeopardy: Business Edition.” As planned, it was both a fun and educational evening. Students learned more about business, … Continue reading

Pastor and Leadership Conference

Long time no write! If you couldn’t tell, the Life at Nyack blog went on a brief hiatus. Yes, we have plenty of catching up to do. A few weeks ago, the NYC Campus SGA members and other school leaders were invited to attend Brooklyn Tabernacle’s 2011 Pastor and Leadership Conference. The event, titled “Be Encouraged,” featured two days of messages, prayer, and workshops on topics ranging from children’s ministry to evangelism in the 21st century. At breakfast, we interacted with pastors and leaders from around the U.S. and the world who came to, well, “be encouraged.” In the morning … Continue reading

Relationships Taken Seriously

You are foolish to give up a relationship because the other person annoys you- bothers you- or even hurts you. If you do this then you can be sure that you’ll end up alone. Because at the end of the day, friendship is about confronting the person that annoys you, bothers you, and hurts you. Relationships require us to Talk things through, Commit to do doing things better & most of all Love Uncondi…tionally. These are the kinds of relationships that are well worth it- not only for your benefit, but for each others. Ask yourself what relationships are worth … Continue reading

Hillsong NYC Church

Today, I had the privilege to visit the Hillsong NYC Church in Manhattan! The excursion happened with a friend, my lovely fiance, and future sister in-law. Although traffic made us a bit late- it was all well worth it. The place was packed! Especially, since it was the third service of the day. The service lasted about 2 hours— and when we were leaving there was a long line of people waiting outside for the next service. It was really great to see how many people are getting involved! It definitely won’t be my last time 😀

Manhattan Campus

If you haven’t been back to the Manhattan campus yet, you’re in for quite a few treats! The campus has seen quite a few upgrades, including shiny new Mac computers. Not bad, huh? We also have “The Haven,” a part of the building the college recently obtained. Recognize it from the photo? It used to be what students termed “the futon store.” If you needed a tiny bit more of a spur to get excited about this upcoming semester… well, you’re welcome. Also, look out for a post about the new student orientation that took place last Thursday, coming soon.
