Student Life in NYC
Multicultural Day 2015
On Tuesday March 24th, the Student Government Association hosted our Spring Semester Multicultural Day! The boisterous evening opened up with prayers in three languages (English, Spanish, and Vietnamese). There were many dances that followed, including a Vietnamese dance by Flower Dang, an African dance from Jessica Leclere, and a special invasion of the "Indian Squad" who taught us some Bollywood moves! The evening rounded out with a hysterical game of musical chairs and of course, some delicious cultural food. Thanks to all for a wonderful event!
CityServe: For this City Youth Event
On Saturday, March 14th, Nyack College NYC joined forces with our Rockland campus to volunteer for CityServe: For This City Youth Event. Students ushered, greeted guests, and spread the Nyack cheer. The evening included worship from Jesus Culture, a testimony from Evangelist Andrew Palau, and a special sermon from Christ Tabernacle's Pastor Chris Durso. We had a great time sharing laughter, joy, and moments of beautiful worship. On Saturday, March 28th, both Nyack campuses will again join forces to volunteer in a city-wide clean up event.
Ministry Outreach - Students Against Hunger
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink..."
- Matthew 25:35
Nyack College NYC students, school alumni, and ATS graduates came together on Thursday, February 26th to minister to the homeless and hungry. The Students Against Hunger prepared approximately 100 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, packed them into bags, and traveled up to Penn Station to hand deliver them. The students also delivered kind words and prayers of encouragement to those who are on the streets during this harsh New York winter. Several blankets were also distributed as temperatures have reached record lows in recent weeks.
We pray that God will continue to grow and prosper this ministry. We are so proud of our Nyack College NYC students!
2015 Black History Month Celebration
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Nyack College NYC Student Government Association (SGA), led by Secretary Landai Barnes, hosted a Black History Month celebration on Thursday, February 26th. The program included special tributes to Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Mahalia Jackson, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Numerous students contributed to a wonderful program that honored the lives and sacrifices of African American heroes. The program culminated with stunning performances from the Living Waters Dance Ministry and the Christian Folk Ensemble. As students went off to their 6 PM classes, they grabbed some traditional foods including delicious collard greens and sweet potato pie.
The Veterans Club - Meet & Greet
It was a great day of fellowship for our NYC College Veterans on Thursday, February 26th. Those who have served with the Army, Marines, Air Force, and Navy all gathered together to share stories and discuss current issues. We are so proud to have many former (and current) members of the armed forces here at Nyack! We look forward to the next meeting and thank those who have served our country so selflessly.
