Hello Campus Slate Readers,
It’s Thanksgiving week and on behalf of myself and everyone on the staff of The Campus Slate, we would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a safe mini vacation coming up for the holiday. Some of you are receiving this issue at our Thanksgiving Celebration and we would like to thank everyone who took part in our event by donating food for those in need which will be going to a local charity and to all those on campus who made our event possible to happen.
Inside this month’s issue, with it being Thanksgiving week, it is also the kickoff of the holiday season and holiday shopping with one of the biggest shopping days of the year known as Black Friday. We have an article to preview this year’s big shopping day and what you should know before heading to the stores. In other NYIT news this month, NYCOM, our medical school recently received grants for studies and we have details on what kind of research will be going on with those grants.
Did you ever think you have a great idea for a club that’s not on campus and you don’t know who to talk to? Well we reveal the answer to that this month as many students have great ideas that may come around at some point in time. Also inside the issue, we introduce you to the campus writing center which is a great resource is you are looking for help on writing assignments especially with final exams coming up shortly.
Print Journalism is also changing constantly and one area of change has been production of newspapers with less people reading a printed newspaper and going to the internet to find their news. Research has been done on that and we have that information for you this month. Technology has been a big topic of discussion this semester in our publication and we continue it with an article about Smart phones and Textbook texting involving students and their studies and how it changes education.
In sports, the Men’s Soccer Team won the East Coast Conference Championship and participated in the NCAA Division II Tournament which is our sports cover story this month. We also preview the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams this month which includes the Men’s visiting the Villanova Wildcats of the Big East Conference for an exhibition game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia that took place on November 8th.
Don’t forget to read Joe Fortine’s latest blog entries in “Words for the Working World” on our website, www.campusslate.com and also on our website and inside the issue, we have two exciting contests for a chance at some great prizes so make sure you enter. Also don’t forget to add us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @nyitcampusslate.
Happy Thanksgiving and Enjoy Reading!!!
