“At CNR, I feel a
genuine sense of community, of a college community,
and it's both felt and observed on different levels. Everywhere I go I
see close-knit groups of people who, even though they either have been
here forever or they seem like they have been here forever, never make
me feel excluded.”

attended more than one college,
what do you find interesting about CNR?
Every college from
those I've actually attended to those I've merely
read brochures for brings some level of focus to the idea of community,
of their college community but in my estimation, CNR has the real
thing, a great community.
I feel a genuine sense of
community, of a college community, and it's both felt and observed on
different levels. Everywhere I go I see close-knit groups of people
who, even though they either have been here forever or they seem like
they have been here forever, never make me feel excluded. As a staff
member, obviously, we call these close-knit groups, departments, but
there are also students who do the same thing. Art students working in
the Mooney Center together until all hours are just as close as the
nursing students studying together in the Student Campus Center until
all hours or as the School of New Resources study group that meets in
the Library or the Castle Gallery workers who stay late preparing for
the next show, or the security officers you never see because they're
here from midnight to 8 a.m.
expostulate what majesty should be,
what duty is, why day is day, night is night, and time is time, were
nothing but to waste night, day, and time. Therefore, since brevity is
the soul of wit, and tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, I
will be brief; the most different thing I have encountered at The
College of New Rochelle is its community. Not just because it is so
great but also because it is real.
What are you studying in the School of New Resources?
of interest in SNR is foreign
languages. I already had 30 credits in foreign languages, so it would
be silly do focus on anything else. Since I intend to go to graduate
school here at CNR for communications, I’m focusing on that.
You also work on campus?
I’ve actually had several jobs since
I started in April 2007. First I was a temp working as the Help Desk
Coordinator. After a year, I moved to the Security Office, initially
just to cover for a woman during her maternity leave, but, after three
months, they decided to keep me and, after a little over a year in the
Security Office, I’m now a security guard.
are you career plans?
to teach. I’ve begun to realize
that’s something I really need to be doing, but, I also need to be
creating things and performing, so, I’ll need to find some way of
arranging my life that will allow me to teach while continuing my many
eccentric hobbies such as making comics, doing calligraphy, juggling,
playing ukulele, and writing.
