    • U.S. Representative Paul Tonko will be on campus Friday, April 21 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the BTC Auditorium for an informal meeting with students, faculty and staff. The campus community is encouraged to attend.

  • HVCC Novel Bunch: meet Sandra Hutchison, author of Bardwell’s Folly
    - Posted on April 20, 2017
    • Join us for the final spring 2017 meeting of the HVCC Novel Bunch in welcoming author and Hudson Valley Community College faculty member Sandra Hutchison. 

      When:  Monday, April 24, 2017 at 2 p.m.
      Where: Dwight Marvin Library Multipurpose Room

      Excerpt from Goodreads:
      What if the only way to find home is to leave it? Dori Bardwell’s father was the white Southern author of THE novel about slavery, a man who settled his large family up north in a replica of a plantation house and never spoke of his past. A tragic accident pulled Dori from college to care for her only remaining brother, but now the money is running out, her ex-boyfriend appears intent on revenge, a media baron has designs on her father’s last, unfinished manuscript, and her own thoughtless blackface joke is about to go viral and turn her life upside down.

      About the author:
      Born and raised in the Tampa Bay area, Sandra Hutchison survived her parents’ move to the small town of Greenfield, Massachusetts one snowy winter and eventually stopped sulking about it, though it’s possible she’s still working it out in her fiction. She lives in upstate New York, where she works on her writing when she is not teaching at Hudson Valley Community College.

      For more information contact Librarian Anne LaBelle, 629-7384, MRV 142 or a.labelle@hvcc.edu.

      Please donate your old cell phones including all accessories and sim cards to this cause. If the cell phone is no longer in working condition that is fine; e-cycle will recycle it and make sure it is disposed of properly. For any of the phones that are in usable/working condition, the company sends a check to the Faculty Student Association to benefit the food pantry.

      Phones may be dropped anytime in the box in the Viking’s Cove Bookstore or look for the phone collection table during the Sustainability Fair in the Siek Campus Center on Thursday, April 27.

Threads provides students with an opportunity for creative and academic expression, including but not limited to, poetry, short stories, essays, photography, and art.

      Additionally, every April the English Department hosts a college-wide presentation where students read and discuss their published work. The annual Threads presentation promotes campus-wide involvement in, awareness of, and sensitivity to writing and artwork from the college’s diverse student population.

  • Spring 2017 withdrawal deadline is Thursday, April 13
    - Posted on April 11, 2017
    • Spring 2017 Withdrawal Deadline is Thursday, April 13, 2017.

      This is just a reminder that Thursday, April 13, 2017 is the last day to withdraw from courses for the Spring 2017 semester. It is strongly recommended that a student discusse the impact of either course withdrawals or a total withdrawal with an academic advisor and the Financial Aid Office prior to completing the process. All completed forms must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, 2017 in order to receive a grade of “W” (withdrawal) on your record.

      Course Withdrawals
      A student may withdraw from a course or courses prior to the end of the day (5 p.m.) on Thursday, April 13, 2017. A student must obtain the approval and the signature from his or her advisor or department chair for course withdrawals. The official date of withdrawal is the date that the completed form is received in the Registrar’s Office. Discontinuance of class attendance or notice to the instructor does not constitute authorized withdrawal.

      Course withdrawals from a term may jeopardize current and future financial aid eligibility.

      Total Withdrawal
      A student may withdraw from all registered courses within a term prior to the end of the day (5 p.m.) on Thursday, April 13, 2017. To complete a total withdrawal, please visit the Registrar’s Office in the Guenther Enrollment Services Center, Room 136. The official date of withdrawal is the date that the form is completed.

      A total withdrawal from a term may jeopardize current and future financial aid eligibility.

      If a student is unable to complete either of the above in-person, a letter with the student’s signature will be accepted as long as it is postmarked and mailed through the U.S. Postal Service by April 13, 2017. Any request received after the deadline will not be accepted.

    • Who else but Brian Melick, the region’s best known and most enduring percussionist, would use LEGOs to build a drum set? The Cultural Affairs Program presents “A Percussionist and His LEGOs” on Thursday, April 13 at noon in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium.

      Following a “very strict credo NOT to alter the original LEGO-designed brick in any way” — no cutting, drilling or gluing — Melick took advantage of the toy’s remarkable flexibility to build a fully-functional musical instrument. Melick will talk about his inspiration and process to build the drum set, perform and answer questions from the audience. He may even let drummers sample the kit themselves after the presentation.

A student must obtain the approval and the signature from his or her advisor or department chair for course withdrawals.

    • Four State University of New York scholars address the topic “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” during a rescheduled African-American History Month presentation on Tuesday, April 4, in the Maureen Stapleton Theatre. The event, open free to the public, runs from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The program, postponed from Feb. 9 when the college was closed due to a snow storm, honors the legacies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King.

President Matonak delivers welcome remarks.

      Panelists are:
      — Dr. Seth N. Asumah, a SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor, Political Science professor and chair of the Africana Studies Department at SUNY Cortland, shares Dr. King’s vision of America and revisits King’s legendary “I Have A Dream” speech and book, “Why We Can’t Wait.”
      — Dr. Carlos Medina, vice chancellor and chief diversity officer in SUNY’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI), presents The Power of SUNY’s Strategic Plan of Inclusion, including policies and practices to assist students, and remedies for greater inclusion.
      — Dr. Ann Geisendorfer, chair of the Criminal Justice, Forensic Science and Public Administration Department at Hudson Valley Community College, and Dr. Mecke Nagel, a philosophy professor who directs the Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies at SUNY Cortland, discuss recent police and criminal justice system reforms.

      This African American History and Culture Edu-Drama is sponsored by Sisters In Cynch, a student club advised by Chambers that offers projects and programs that embrace diversity and inclusion, and the Student Senate at Hudson Valley Community College. Click here for a program flyer.

      A brief reception featuring African American and Latino cuisine will follow the program. Please call (518) 629-7431 for more information.

  • Voices Lecture on bees is Tuesday, April 4
    - Posted on April 3, 2017
    • The Voices: A Library Lecture Series Committee is pleased to present “The Buzz about Bees” by Tom Della Rocco on Tuesday, April 4 at noon in the BTC Auditorium.

      Honey bees are responsible for pollinating up to one third of the fruits and vegetables we eat every day. Besides this most important role, honey bees live a fascinating social life. Honey bees and wild pollinators also are important to the health of the environment. Currently, honey bees and many other pollinators are under stress from a variety of sources. Loss of habitat, parasites, disease and pesticide exposure contribute to the decline in bee populations. Tom Della Rocco, Albany county executive director with the USDA Farm Service Agency, discusses the life of honey bees and the threats they face.
