  • Williams and Brahan asbestos abatement project

  • Commencement Moved To McDonough Field House
    - Posted on May 11, 2018
    • To members of the campus community:

      Despite our intention to host families and friends together in one outdoor venue, unusually cold weather and slippery conditions due to recent rainfall have caused uncomfortable and potentially unsafe conditions for our many graduates and their guests.

      As a result, tomorrow’s Commencement ceremony will take place indoors in the McDonough Sports Complex field house with the following logistical changes:

      • Each graduate who picked up a cap and gown has received five tickets.
        • Three green tickets allow access to the main ceremony area in the McDonough field house.
        • Two white tickets allow access to overflow viewing areas on campus where the ceremony is shown on video. These include the Conway Ice Rink, the Maureen Stapleton Theatre, Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium and Meeting Rooms, and Fitzgibbons 100 lecture hall.
        • Note: Guests with disabilities holding blue tickets will be admitted to the McDonough field house and directed to special seating.

      Faculty and Platform Party will gather in the Siek Campus Center for the procession. Graduates arriving for the ceremony should report to the McDonough Sports Complex lobby.

      Commencement is broadcast live online and on Spectrum channel 1301 in the Capital Region (except in Glens Falls and Schenectady where the TV broadcast is unavailable) from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

      Please note the post-Commencement celebration/reception will be held in the Conway Ice Rink, located in the McDonough Sports Complex.

      We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2018 and appreciate your participation.

      ~ Members of the Commencement Committee

  • This week in athletics
    - Posted on May 7, 2018
    • Track and Field had a historic weekend as the men’s team won the NJCAA Region 3 championship in its first season back since the college decided to end the program several years ago. The meet saw several individual student-athletes set personal records and qualify for the National meet this weekend. Please read the full story to see the full list of records set by our student-athletes (athletics.hvcc.edu).

      Elijah Washington was named the Men’s Field Athlete of the Meet following his two wins in the Hammer Throw and Shot Put. Washington tossed the hammer 45.67m and the shot put 12.66m. Washington also placed second in the Javelin with a final throw of 39.84m.

      The women’s top student-athlete was Ashley Martinez as she was named the Women’s Track Athlete of the Meet following her two wins in the 100m and 200m dash events. Martinez nearly swept all sprint events after she placed second in the 400m dash with a time of 1:05.38, which was 0.03 seconds behind Onondaga’s Shelby Kiteveles.

      The Vikings will carry their championship momentum into the National meet May 10 to 12, which is hosted by Mohawk Valley.

      Baseball (21-11) has been playing great this season as they finished last week with a 6-2 record, including a six-game win streak with sweeps over Jefferson and Columbia-Greene. Prior to Sunday’s games at Mohawk Valley, the Vikings had three student-athletes hitting .500 or better for the week. The team was led by Ben Grant who hit .667 (4-for-6) and scored five runs and hit his first home run of the season. Jackson Wenstrom batted .550 with three home runs, 13 RBIs and four doubles. Derek Miller hit .500 with nine hits and seven RBIs.

      The Vikings finish up the regular season on Tuesday at home vs. Adirondack at 2 p.m. The Vikings are in contention for hosting a sub-regional series this weekend.

      Golf played in the Genesee Invitational on Sunday, but the scores were not available at the time of this posting. The team has qualified for the Regional Tournament being held on Sunday, May 13 and Monday, May 14 at Tompkins Cortland.

      Softball (7-13) concluded its 2018 season and finished the year with a 7-1 record in the team’s final eight games. Since May 1, Elizabeth Brooking is hitting .733 with 11 hits, five doubles and nine RBIs. During the same time period, Paige Roberts is hitting .696 with 16 hits, six doubles, two home runs and 11 RBIs. Sierra Putnam made a charge in the final eight games as she batted .435 with two home runs and 10 RBIs.

  • Recycling is easy on Hudson Valley’s campus
    - Posted on May 7, 2018
    • Recycling is easy on the Hudson Valley Community College campus! Just look for the large blue bins or totes near garbage and waste bins, or if you’re in the Science Center look for recycling bins in the wooden cabinets next to the classroom doors on every floor.

      The HVCC Recycling Guide answers any question you may have about what can be recycled on campus. It is easier than you may think! For example, disposable plastic salad containers bought at Market 32 or on campus can be rinsed out and recycled, just look for the numbers 1-7 on the lid and container. Getting a quick drink at Dunkin’ Donuts or Cumberland Farms? Toss  the straw and lid, but recycle the cup! Please bookmark the HVCC Recycling Guide for easy reference: http://www.hvcc.edu/ehs/recycle/index.html

  • Not too late to sign up for the non-credit Manufacturing Technology Pathways Program!
    - Posted on May 2, 2018
    • The college is offering a non-credit Manufacturing Technology Pathways program so more people can acquire the basic skills that can lead to opportunities in manufacturing positions. The program is designed to start participants on a pathway to a variety of good-paying positions in manufacturing.

      The intensive, two-week Boot Camp is Monday, May 14 to Friday, May 25  from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Monday through Friday only, no weekends) in the Lang Technical Building.

      It is not too late to enroll! View more details about the program.

      The college has an excellent reputation with local manufacturers in the region for educating high quality graduates. Many of the entry-level positions with manufacturers require some basic skills, but not necessarily an associate’s degree. These job opportunities are abundant and most start at more than $15/hour, some over $20. Recent views of Indeed job search in the Capital Area revealed over 900 entry level positions requiring only a high school diploma, some experience and a few basic skills.

      Here are a couple of quotes from former participants:

      “I really didn’t know what to expect. Very happy I came. I learned enough to be comfortable applying for an entry level job in manufacturing. I enjoyed this experience a lot. All the teachers were great.”

      “This program is an excellent introduction to all the opportunities available, especially in the Capital Region, even for people without much experience. I already have two interviews scheduled and I’m looking forward to a great future.”

      Get involved, check out the program and refer others who may be seeking career direction.

  • Meet Stella the therapy dog, rescued from an animal cruelty raid.
    - Posted on May 2, 2018
    • You’re invited to take time out from the end-of-semester pressure and frantic pace to meet a dog who has seen the worst, emerged triumphantly, and gives back to hospitals, schools, libraries, churches and colleges on a regular basis.

      Stella came to Cydney Cross in 2013 following one of the largest animal cruelty raids in U.S. history in Montgomery, Alabama.

      Many of these animals went on to become therapy dogs, law enforcement dogs, and beloved family pets. Stella is both a family pet and a therapy dog, certified through Therapy Dogs International and the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program.

      Cydney Cross, Stella’s handler,  was  selected by WTEN News 10 as an Inspirational Woman of the Capital Region and is an adjunct professor in SUNY Cobleskill’s Animal Science Department and teaches therapy dog training. Her passion project is a pit bull rescue program, “Out of the Pits,” that has over 50,000 followers on Facebook. She teaches dog training classes at Scotia’s Animal Protective Foundation and was a consultant to authorities and animal behaviorists following the 2007 Michael Vick case. Nationally renowned, she is a skilled and humble educator.

      Come meet this legendary lady and her docile, gentle canine, Stella!

      Date: Tuesday,  May 8
      Time: 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
      Location: Dwight Marvin Library Learning Commons Troy Savings Bank Charitable Foundation Atrium
      Stella will meet visitors in a designated area of the library cafe.
