Hello Campus Slate Readers,

It is amazing that we have now reached the midway point of the semester. I hope everyone is enjoying NYIT and we at The Campus Slate thank everyone for their kind words and support for our production of the first issue of the year. This month in addition to the print issue you will always be reading, we have an announcement about an upcoming addition to our publication.

Inside our October issue we continue our semester long coverage of the 2012 Presidential Election as we are now two weeks away from Election Day and the candidates have headed to debates. One of those debates took place here on Long Island last week at Hofstra University. Congratulations to everyone at NYIT for helping earn two prestigious recognitions through U.S. News and you can read more about the recognitions inside the issue.

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we have an article covering this month long awareness both on and off campus. In the College of Arts and Sciences, this month we are looking back at the career of English adjunct Professor Gail Feinzig who recently announced her retirement from teaching. This month we also have an article on Recycling Awareness and I thank senior Victoria Torres for contributing this informative piece to us.

The Sports section this month features history by the Women’s Tennis team as we congratulate them on winning their first East Coast Conference Title. We also visited with Women’s Volleyball and have an update on their season currently in progress. The Barclays Center in Brooklyn officially opened its doors this month and I give you an inside look at the newest arena in the Metropolitan area. The Long Island Ducks, a minor league baseball team located in Central Islip, down the road from NYIT are Atlantic League Champions and they are featured in our issue this month for their exciting victory.

The Campus Slate will also be holding an information session event on October 30th during free hour. We hope you all attend and find out more about our publication especially if you are interested in joining. Please visit our website www.campusslate.com and our Social Media pages for more details on the event. We would like to congratulate Thomas Alicanti, the winner of our 3rd annual Summer Vacation Contest. I thank everyone who submitted entries to the contest and to be on the lookout for more contests throughout the year.

The blog “That’s What She Said” is up and running every week on our website www.campusslate.com and I encourage everyone to go check it out. Don’t forget to LIKE NYIT Campus Slate on Facebook, follow us on Twitter @nyitcampusslate, Instagram and Tumblr by searching NYIT Campus Slate.
