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.

Erik Cabrera (first year, Computer Science major) was excited to receive his prize on Monday, April 22, after being randomly selected as the winner of an iPad Mini upon completing the Old Westbury 2013 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 32 questions discussing topics ranging from on assessing student pride, SGA satisfaction, event participation and faculty connectivity. It was sent out to all 3,443 students of NYIT-Old Westbury and open for a period of two weeks. 777 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. Erik Cabrera was randomly selected as the winner. When Erik 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 will prepare for the next SGA President to take on. He looks forward to seeing the changes suggested by student participants over the next come to life. President Hammarberg would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey and encourages everyone to look out for next year’s spring survey!

NYIT Bear Communities 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. Read more..
