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

Where Have You Been

The blog is back.  Where I have been is a question for NCIS and my lawyer.  Remember I am guilty while the courts sort out my case.  Summer is gone and Dr. G has officially opened up NYIT with another convocation.  Exciting times for NYIT and I am blessed to still be around for the show.  OW campus improvements are simply amazing.....nice job and great touch.  It has been a long short summer.  No down time, a plethora of positive advancements, untimely deaths in my immediate and work family but life's clock continues to tick and that means "you have to get busy… More
