Old Westbury, N.Y. (September 19, 2014) - New York Institute of Technology's Wisser Memorial Library will host "Current Expressions," a group art and photography exhibit in October, featuring new works by eight of Long Island's award-winning artists and photographers.
The free exhibit, which runs Oct. 1-29 at the library on NYIT's Old Westbury campus, includes works from:
"October's ensemble exhibit features visionary artists and photographers with a diversity of attitudes whose recent works of art are a perfect match with the contemporary design of the bi-level art gallery in the Wisser Library," Rader said.
Among the works are Lorenc's "Almost Sunset," a photograph depicting a striking seascape heightened by the photographer's skill in creating subtle enhancements, and Townsent-Broderick's "Sister Girls" (above, right), a fabric quilt inspired by African textiles and patterns.

Six NYIT students traveled to Syracuse, N.Y., from Oct. 11 to 13 to attend the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA) Northeast Regional Conference. They were accompanied by Mehtap Donuk, director of student activities and leadership development at NYIT-Old Westbury, and APCA Northeast regional coordinator. APCA has been around since 1994 helping college students across America with their programming needs.
Students included Greek Life Council e-board members Jatinder Saini, Prattasha Paul, Bernadette Connell, Brian Church, and Pooja Berdia as well as Navpreet Sachdev, president of the NYIT-Old Westbury Campus Programing Board and student delegate for the APCA Northeast region. They were nominated and elected to be national interns for the conference and assisted with registration, announcing national speakers, running icebreakers, and leading roundtable discussions. Brian Church, who works as a student employee in NYIT's Academic Computing Lab, was also asked to work with the conference's professional stage management staff members, who were so impressed with his contributions that they offered him a job on the spot to travel the country with them in summer 2014.
During the conference, students listened to presentations by expert speakers and student affair mentors, attended talent showcases, and networked with vendors. "I was given the opportunity to learn from poets, artists, comedians, and professional speakers about myself and more importantly about the world," said Berdia.
In addition, they chose different educational sessions to attend such as overcoming adversity, Greek life roundtable, facilitating great discussions from activity to learning, and making any space a programming space.
"For us as student leaders to engage our campus, we need to have the right attitude and a lot of desire to make change," said Sachdev. "We have to take charge and set out to achieve our goals. We can't just hand out fliers and expect students to go to an event. It takes a lot more, and it starts with creating bonds with the people on campus."
Donuk added, "I'm a proud advisor because our students shine everywhere they go and have so much school pride!"

NYIT Bear Communities (BC) are housing options for returning residential students who wish to build community and live with each other while exploring a theme, common interest, and/ or passion. Residents in a BC area apply to be part of these unique communities and are offered special programs and opportunities to teach others about their interests, strengths, and passions.
BCs are a great opportunity for students to gain leadership skills, share their knowledge with others, and live with people who hold similar values. NYIT Bear Communities are different from other residential communities and halls because they allow students to further explore topics and causes important to them. NYIT Bear Communities will offer special related programs, and opportunities, which distinguish these communities from other housing.
NYIT Bear Communities are for returning students who elect to live in these suites who MUST apply as a full suite of six residents. These suites will pledge that they will participate in and sponsor semester programs consistent with their identified cause. With oversight and advising of from designated and committed Housing & Residential Staff, this living community will partner with a faculty or staff person in order to meet their semester goal of engaging with their identified cause. This may include coordinating the budget, training, potential travel off-campus, conversations, and commitment to interpersonal communication, and learning outcomes. This year's themes are up to you. So please be creative and realistic in your proposal:
How do I come up with a theme?
You and your desired suite mates must chose a themed purpose. The themed purpose can be a theme that is based around a common interest or major. Themes such as sustainability, community service, civility, wellness, arts and religion are just a few to be named. Each BC must develop an educational purpose - what you are hoping to learn from the experience or how you plan to enhance your education by living in an BC. This is your mission statement of sorts. Your purpose should be a short, broad statement that explains what the theme of the BC will be and what you hope to achieve through the BC program.
For example, if the BC theme is Pre-professional students, your purpose may be as follows: The purpose of the Pre-professional suite is to provide a support network for students living in the halls which will help us achieve our academic goals, explore and apply for professional degree programs upon graduation from NYIT, and network in our respective fields.
What types of themes can my group use?
The possibilities for different themes are endless. Examples include but not limited to) sustainability, religious groups, musical theater, different languages, student organizations, diversity, computer science, and much more!
