NYIT students attended club and Greek fairs in January 2013 at the Old Westbury campus. Pictured is a student member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority at the Greek fair on Jan. 29. View more photos of the Greek fair and the club fair.
The Community Service Center (CSC) in Manhattan hosted its first volunteer fair on Jan. 29, when 75 NYIT students met with representatives from local nonprofit organizations to learn how they can get involved in their communities. From graphic design and social media volunteers, to database administrators and technology tutors, there was a position for just about everyone.
If you missed the volunteer fair and would like to learn how you can apply your skills to doing good for your community and your career, stop by the CSC in Old Westbury (Salten Hall, room 3) or Manhattan (26 W. 61st St., room 7), or visit the Community Service Center online.
Students in NYIT's Vocational Independence Program (VIP) attended the Third Annual Memorial Pool and Pizza Tournament on Feb. 1 in memory of the late Benjamin J. Cecil, a VIP student who was tragically killed in a pedestrian accident. The tournament is sponsored by Cecil's family and takes place on his birthday in celebration of his love of VIP, pool, and pizza.
In addition, VIP students participated in a coat drive as part of the "Dare to Care" campaign to promote kindness and community service at NYIT's site in Central Islip, N.Y. More than 75 winter coats were collected and donated to the Central Islip Civics Council for distribution to local residents.
