Portion Sizes and Food Labels

Many of us get on the scale and are surprised by the number staring back at us, We think back to what we've eaten over the last few days and things don't seem to add up. Aside from the types of food you may be eating, the amounts are critical as well. An important feature of food labels is serving size. Yes, your snack may say 100 calories per serving and if there's one serving per container, then that's all you eat. But if each container has two and half serving and you finished the whole thing, your calorie intake is… More

Newsletter Format for a Course Syllabus

In an attempt to help first year students / freshman and be sensitive to the cultural impact of both international students and students leaving a smaller town to venture into the ‘big city,’ I have adapted my approach to the ‘course outline.’ I have used a newsletter format in order to begin the semester on a more informal but informative note.

Fall Semester 2010…and we’re off!

Welcome back!  When I last saw most of you we were concluding the spring semester, hotly anticipating the summer months. Well, the summer flew and much anticipated vacations at the Jersey shore washed up, literally.  So much happened and upon reflection, I realize that we accomplished much more than we expected!  First, Adrienne McNally, the Assistant Director of Experiential Education in OW, delivered a flawless baby girl.  One might even say she is practically perfect!  All those months of suffering from merry-go-round and tea cup rides in her belly certainly paid off.  Congratulations Adrienne!  We look forward to your return in… More

Here are just some of the headlines from this year! NYIT’s School of Architecture and Design was… More
