State clubs help students feel at home at Notre Dame

first_imgThough Notre Dame is located in Indiana, it caters to a national population with students from many different states. At Notre Dame, student-run state clubs perform the function of bringing together students from their home areas. According to SAO, there are clubs representing nine states: California Club, Connecticut Club, Hawaii Club, Louisiana Club, Minnesota Club, Montana Club, New Jersey Club, New York Club and Texas Club. Each state’s club has a slightly different focus, from helping arrange transportation at breaks to organizing events reflecting their state’s culture.Junior Danny McMaster, vice president of the New Jersey Club, said his club’s main purpose is serving as a link between students, alumni and New Jersey, as well as social opportunities.“We organize rides back, both by organizing a major bus back … [and] in coordination with some of the Philadelphia [alumni] clubs,” McMaster said. “We are the liaisons between New Jersey students on campus and the four New Jersey [alumni] clubs. … We’re just basically a social club where, you know, all the New Jersey kids can get to know each other, get some cool T-shirts, get some good pizza and good breakfast sandwiches.” Junior Rosie Crisman, co-president of California Club, said her club’s major focus is helping Notre Dame students network with professionals in California. She said a large number of California Club members are not actually California natives.“We help students connect to professionals in California, including Notre Dame alumni and recruiters,” she said. “If I had to guess, around 25 percent of our club is not from California.”Senior Iliana Contreras, president of Texas Club, described her club’s mission as both connecting students to alumni networks and helping Texans adjust to life in South Bend.“Alumni networks within the Texas Club are huge. We have the Alumni Barbecue in the spring where actual alumni from Texas come and they host a huge barbecue for all of our students, be [they] from Texas or not,” Contreras said. “We also want [Texas Club] to be a safe haven for people on campus; we recognize that moving to South Bend, Indiana, from any place in Texas … [puts students in] an entirely different culture, environment and weather. We want to make sure that people know where to buy the right jackets, get the right snow boots. … Texas Club is supposed to be a place where you can come and you can combine your two homes: your love of Texas and your love of Notre Dame.”These clubs allow for students to express their love of their home state, even while so far away from home. McMaster said, in his experience, state clubs build up community among the members of their state, and that those involved enjoy their work.“One of the biggest draws for us is that New Jersey is one of the biggest states at Notre Dame, especially considering how far away it is,” McMaster said. “There’s just a matter of state pride … [because] a lot of people rag on our state. Everyone who’s from it really loves it and we all have a good time with it.”Tags: California, Geographic Diversity, New Jersey, State Clubs, Texaslast_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Tuesday, Feb. 26

first_imgMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationCuomo calls for clarity on administering vaccine Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionAdd these to Trump’s “accomplishments”I would like to add to the 289 Trump accomplishments alluded to in Mr. DeAngelus’ Feb. 17 letter. Oh, where to start. Our national debt is estimated to be $25 trillion by 2021. So much for Republicans’ fiscal constraint. Our children and grandchildren will thank us. Mexico will pay for the wall. I forgot, that won’t happen. The rest of the world looks up to us — not. The tax cut will mostly benefit the middle class. Really? The swamp will be drained. Now that’s a good one. I would like to add a few more to get to an even 300, but the paper might run out of space.James Brodie Schenectady Do more to coordinate social justice effortsThe need for improved educational services for youth and adults indicates social justice coordination among agencies is essential.Recognition of this by SUNY’s University Center for Academic and Workforce Development (UCAWD) has established a network of Educational Opportunity Centers collaborating with state, municipal and county agencies, secondary and post-secondary institutions, community-based organizations, and business and industry in its efforts.Academically and economically underserved students who are at least 16 years old  have accessed traditional classroom learning with applied science or hands-on projects to become skilled workers for businesses.Collaboration among guidance counselors, teachers, teacher assistants, parents and students is essential for the state Board of Regents’ Whole Child Social and Emotional Learning approach to access classroom learning and applied science projects for the students.In our area, the GE Brilliant Career Lab was established through partnership by the GE Foundation, the GE Power, and Schenectady city’s public-school district.The reproduction of that model requires social-justice minded individuals to persuade municipal and school district officials to utilize the State-County Shared Services Initiative to coordinate the federal-state funded 21st Century Community Learning Center program with the UCAWD network for academically and financially underserved youth and adults.Michael McGlynnWatervlietcenter_img Our area would be the best place for AmazonMr. Bezos, please consider the New York Capital District/Tech Valley as an excellent Amazon HQ2 LIC alternative.1.

ScienceShot: That’s a Mite Speedy!

first_imgEat your heart out, Usain Bolt! Based on body size, a sesame seed–sized mite native to Southern California runs faster than any other animal on Earth, new research suggests. In high-speed videos taken both in the lab and in the field, the predatory mite Paratarsotomus macropalpis, a little-studied desert species first described almost a century ago, scampered as many as 322 body lengths in 1 second. That peak speed, as well as an average speed of 192 body lengths per second, handily tops the previous speed champ (the Australian tiger beetle, clocking in at a mere 171 body lengths per second), the researchers report today at the Experimental Biology 2014 meeting in San Diego, California. For comparison, a cheetah running about 96 kilometers per hour moves about 16 body lengths per second—and humans covering ground as fast as this mite does could run more than 2000 km/hr. Future studies of these mites (which pick up and put down each foot about 135 times a second) could help engineers develop superfast, superagile robots.See more ScienceShots.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more
