New York, NY (Sep. 27, 2014) — After 5 months of planning, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) of New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) brought together various local chapters, high school students and NSBE alums under one roof on Saturday, September 27, 2014, for the annual Fall Zone Conference. “This is the first time that members can see what NSBE is about”, Jamiah Braithwaite, NSBE’s Manhattan President, said. “You get a feeling of a family that is welcoming to any newcomers.” Held in NYIT’s Auditorium on Broadway, more than 75 individuals from across the Metropolitan and Long Island area attended to participate in nine workshops throughout the day that covered: “Conflict Resolution,” “What is Cultural Responsibility?” and “Presidents Assemble!” a favorite of NSBE Old Westbury President, Don Jeudi. “It was a time to express chapter concerns and plan events where we can collaborate across various colleges and become more connected - and that is important to me,” Jeudi said. The conference gave aspiring engineers the opportunity to not only network, but helped cultivate skills to be successful in the workplace. “For all parties involved, it's guaranteed that you will meet someone new and learn something new; a person and a thing that is likely to last you much longer than just that day,” said NYIT student Omari Adams, President of the Zone Conference.

Dr. Nada Marie Anid, dean of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at NYIT, published her letter to the editor titled,”How to Succeed in College” in the September 18 edition of the New York Times. In her letter she gives the same three pieces of advice she gave to the entering Class of 2018: Always ask for help: overcome your shyness and pride. It’s O.K. if you don’t know — just ask, make friends: college is about the people you meet; that human experience is unequaled, be engaged: join a club, and if no club is to your liking, start a club. Prepare a budget and a list of activities. Make sure that you know where the career services office is located. Build your résumé.
