Antonio Figueroa (third year, Health Science major) was excited to receive his prize on Friday, June 8, after being randomly selected as the winner of an iPad upon completing the Old Westbury 2012 SGA Student Life Satisfaction Survey.

Student Government Association President, Robert Hammarberg, put together a student satisfaction survey to gather feedback about improvements that could be made on the Old Westbury campus. The survey was comprised of 20 questions discussing topics ranging from on campus dining to accessing student pride. It was sent out to all 4,698 students of NYIT-Old Westbury and open for a period of two weeks. An astounding 1,229 students responded by the time the survey closed.

Students who participated in the survey had the option of entering themselves in a drawing to win a brand new iPad. Antonio Figueroa was randomly selected as the winner. When Antonio came to retrieve his prize, he stated how he was happy to take part in the survey. There is a hefty amount of data and comments to analyze, which President Hammarberg has already begun to do and looks forward to making changes suggested by student participants over the next year in his second term as SGA President. He would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey!

NYIT Begins Planning Phase for Old Westbury Residence Halls

NYIT has formed a steering committee to help solicit ideas and input about plans to construct residence halls in Old Westbury.

"Building residence halls on the Old Westbury campus is a project that we've wanted to undertake for many years," said NYIT President Edward Guiliano. "With our land use and financial plans approved by the NYIT Board of Trustees, we are now taking the next steps in having the project come to fruition."

Vice President for Financial Affairs Len Aubrey and Vice President for Information Technology and Infrastructure Niyazi Bodur are co-chairs of the new residence hall project steering committee that will seek comments from students, faculty, staff, and other groups. NYIT has engaged the architectural, engineering, and design firm of Fletcher Thompson to work on the development of the plans. In addition, over the next month, surveyors will be onsite to further develop land use and environmental surveys. Low-flying helicopters and planes will assist.

NYIT will also work closely with the villages of Old Westbury and Brookville to secure necessary approvals and ensure that NYIT remains a good neighbor. University representatives said planning and construction of the residence halls will take several years to complete.

NYIT 4th Annual Relay for Life

 

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.

Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays, no matter where they are held. These traditions help participants celebrate, remember, and fight back.
