As we conclude 2012, we want to take a brief look back at everything we’ve accomplished, every goal we’ve set and consider where we stand now. It was a very challenging year for New Yorkers. Everything that we have gone through has engrained in us a sense of gratefulness of what we have. We will always remember the importance of unity within our communities, standing strong and gazing optimistically to a better tomorrow. Our NYIT community has done a lot of things we can be proud of!

Together, over 70 NYIT students from the Old Westbury and Manhattan campuses helped during Sandy relief by providing care packages and helping with clean up. We engaged rapidly in aiding families during the first days after the Super Storm Sandy hit by providing information on warming centers, shelters, and food pantries. NYIT clubs, organizations, teams, offices and individuals on both campuses contributed to relief efforts.

After Sandy hit, the Community Service Center managed a blood drive with the New York Blood Center to address the shortage in blood reserves. On December 14th 40 NYIT donors participated in the most successful blood drive in NYIT’s history donating enough blood to help 120 people! On April 16th we are hosting another blood drive with the New York Blood Center, Face AIDS, the Red Cross Club and GIVE – contact us if you wish to volunteer or donate.

CSC Spring Semester plans are to keep advocating for civic engagement at every level here at NYIT. We plan to do this by being more present, available and active among the various student organizations and clubs. Upcoming events include our second consecutive year of the NYIT 31 Women of March, which recognizes inspirational women within the NYIT community. Find out more on the NYIT CSC Facebook page. We are also partnering with the Civility Committee Campaign, Global Awareness Task Force, Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development to present the panel on “Women’s body image” on March 28th.

On March 14th during free hour with the International Student Association we are hosting our first discussion panel in a series with a focus on world economics. If you would like to hear various student perspectives and ideas on respective economic conditions in their countries, join us in Harry Shure room 130. Professor Luis Navia will be moderating the discussion.
