  • E-mail and calendaring student survey
    - Posted on May 12, 2015
    • All,

      In an effort to determine the effectiveness and ease of usability for the college’s current e-mail and calendaring platforms, I have formed an e-mail work group. Thus far, the work group has developed a survey (link below) and taken part in an initial overview of Microsoft Office 365.

      In order to provide the best possible service for the campus community, the work group has focused on two primary goals:

      #1: To gather information from the campus community about interest in e-mail features and their usability.

      #2: To use the information gathered about the campus community’s perspectives on the college’s current student and staff e-mail and calendaring platforms, in order to determine if changing platforms should be considered.

      Please use the link below to share your perspective.
      https://www.hvcc.edu/secure/students/email-survey.html

      Thank you.
      Your contribution to the survey is greatly appreciated.

  • Foundation Friday: Troy Savings Bank Charitable Foundation grant will help students get childcare at the Viking Day Care Center
    - Posted on May 1, 2015
    • The Troy Savings Bank Charitable Foundation (TSBCF) has awarded the Foundation $150,000 to support scholarships for students with children that utilize the Viking Day Care Center. The grant was completed by Ann Carrozza and her team at the Faculty Student Association (FSA).

      Through this grant, students will have financial support to receive full-time care in a nurturing environment for their children while obtaining a college education that will lead to greater career opportunities. This grant will restore childcare tuition assistance that was lost due to grant reductions. For the next five years, 10 scholarships will be awarded per semester for a total of 20 per year.

      This is a wonderful accomplishment for the FSA and allows them to achieve their mission of providing auxiliary services to the campus community. The TSBCF gift will have a direct impact, enabling low income students to achieve their academic goals and have a lasting effect on the children of those students who attend the nationally-accredited Viking Day Care Center.

    • Distribution Exercise and College Emergency Drill
      Friday, May 1 — 7 a.m. to noon
      McDonough Sports Complex

      The Rensselaer County Health Department and other community public health partners will perform a Point of Distribution (POD) exercise in the McDonough Field House from 7 a.m. to noon on Friday, May 1.

      A POD location is where health departments distribute medication or provide medical treatment in the event of a real emergency situation, such as a bio-hazard release, a widespread severe influenza outbreak, or an outbreak of a disease like Ebola or Anthrax .

      This on-campus POD drill is intended to improve the Health Department’s ability to respond to emergencies. Nearly 100 county staff members will be on site and more than 500 participants from local community groups will volunteer as patients.

      Please note: POD staff and participants will use I Lot (across North Road from B Lot) for parking, which will restrict access for students, faculty and staff.

      In addition, during the POD exercise, the college’s emergency response committee will conduct a “tabletop” drill to practice crisis response procedures of our own.

  • Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead in Maureen Stapleton Theatre Thursday, Friday and Saturday
    - Posted on April 22, 2015
    • The Theatre Arts program and Theatre Club will present “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday (April 23-25) in the Maureen Stapleton Theatre, located in the Siek Campus Center.

      First performed in August 2004, “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” was written by Bert V. Royal and is an “unauthorized parody.” that imagines characters from the popular comic strip Peanuts as teenagers.

      The play is a frank, comic, and also poignant interpretation of the Charles Shulz’s Peanuts gang, who’ve grown into young adults. The play begins with the death of CB’s beloved dog and CB questioning the existence of an afterlife, and continues as an arresting look at teenage rebellion, self-awareness, drug use, violence, and sexual identity. The ending of the play is both haunting and hopeful. Because of explicit language and mature content, the play is not appropriate for anyone under the age of 14. The play runs approximately one hour and twenty minutes and there will not be an intermission.

      Admission is free for all Hudson Valley Community College with a valid student ID. All other students are $5 with a valid student ID. General admission is $10.

      For further information please contact Rosanne Raneri at 629-7654 or at r.raneri@hvcc.edu.
