Bright Speakers on a Rainy Day

The cold April showers did not deter a group of students from Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society (XAE) and the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Program (HEOP) from visiting the High School of Arts and Technology on Wednesday, April 30. Once they arrived they were greeted by a very welcoming Guidance Counselor, Lia Galeano, who was extremely happy to have NYIT students return to the school. The students spoke to two groups of juniors and seniors during their 3rd and 4th periods for approximately two hours. The NYIT students were asked to speak about their transition from high school to college, the challenges they faced, and how they overcame them. Questions from the high school students quickly turned to specifics; What kind of classes do you take for a pre-med major? What kind of equipment do you need for a graphic arts program? How many hours per week should you plan to study? The questions did not stop, even after it was time for the visit to end. A couple of the NYIT students were held captive by eager high school students long after it was time to leave. Some of the NYIT students were returning to the high school for the second time, while for others it was their very first visit, and also their first time speaking as student leaders! Student John Musler describes his experience as the following, “This was my first time going on the high school visit with XAE. It was a rich and memorable experience. Not only did it remind me how it felt to be a high school student applying for college and needing guidance from my peers, but it also inspired me to continue to do my best at NYIT.”

This visit is always a positive experience for both the NYIT and high school students. Aside from living out the mission of XAE and encouraging students to enter and succeed in college, this visit is also very helpful to the NYIT students who participate. Not only are they able to give something back, but they also have an opportunity to blossom and gain confidence in their public speaking skills. Sadia Arafat was visiting the high school for the second time. On her first visit she was nervous and a bit more held back. However, on this visit she was a very strong and confident speaker who did not hesitate to respond to almost every question asked! We look forward to continued growth with the High School of Arts and Technology. Special thanks to Jeremey Ducos, Assistant Director, Student Activities & Leadership Development, for helping to arrange this visit.

Chi Alpha Epsilon Induction Ceremony

On April 8, NYIT’s Zeta Lambda chapter of the Chi Alpha Epsilon (XAE) National Honor Society held its fourth annual induction ceremony. Eight Arthur O. Eve HEOP students were inducted and seven current members received pin upgrades because they demonstrated high levels of academic achievement after their initial induction. Dr. Robert Koenig, Associate Dean for the School of Management’s Student Advancement Programs and Department of Hospitality gave the institutional remarks. He spoke on the importance of a pursuing a career that students are passionate about and also gave some great advice on managing from the “bottom up” while sharing his own inspiring story. He reminded students to focus on developing their soft skills along with their professional skills, as these will also take them far in life. What was most repeated after his address was the quote he shared “If you love what you do you will never work a day in your life”.

Assemblymember Marcos Crespo was recognized as an honorary member at this year’s induction ceremony. Assemblyman Marcos Crespo embodies the mission of Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society. As an alumnus of the Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge (SEEK) program, Assemblyman Crespo is a shining example of the heights opportunity program students can reach. Mr. Crespo was born in Guayama, Puerto Rico and moved with his family to NYC at a young age. His parents divorced during his sophomore year of high school and after moving back to Puerto Rico for a year following his parent’s separation he soon returned to NYC and played a vital role in the upbringing of his younger sister. In the Fall of 1999, Assemblyman Crespo enrolled in John Jay College to pursue a degree in Government Studies through the SEEK program. Assemblyman Crespo has since been an outspoken advocate for opportunity programs like HEOP, SEEK and TAP. "If it weren't for SEEK [Search for Education Elevation and Knowledge] or TAP [Tuition Assistance Program], I wouldn't have gone to college," Crespo said. "And god knows I wouldn't be here today."

The mission of Chi Alpha Epsilon is not only for students to continue to excel academically but to “promote academic excellence in others and to help those who genuinely aspire to the same goals”. Assemblyman Crespo lives out this mission in his work as the Assemblymember for the 85th district of New York and through the inspiration he provides to all opportunity program students by way of his success.

Members of the NYIT community and loved ones watched as the inductees graciously and emotionally accepted their new honor while thanking those who supported them. The pinning ceremony was an opportunity for students to recognize family, friends, and staff members who have supported them.
