Malcolm Bennett (Associates)-Malcolm is a Business Administration-Marketing/Management Associate’s degree student with a 3.85 cumulative GPA, having achieved both Dean’s and President’s List recognition.  He is also a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and a work study student in the Academic Center.  As part of his academic career, Malcolm will be earning his degree this April and is considering continuing into the BBA program at CW with the ultimate career goal of working in the Sports Management field either in broadcasting or for a professional team.  Malcolm is grateful for the support his Dad has given him and would also like to thank Profs Torres, Capellan, and DeMatteo for giving him the knowledge to improve his academic work and imparting life lessons.

Violet Dokaj (BBA)-Violet is a Bachelor’s in Business Administration student with a 3.93 cumulative GPA, having achieved both Dean’s and President’s list recognition.  Her choice for CW came after an admissions representative visited her high school and she felt it was the right choice for her, as she loves the caring faculty that go out of their way to help.  Violet works at Off Saks 5th Avenue here in White Plains and hopes to eventually enroll in law school and work as a district attorney. One faculty member who inspires Violet is Dr. James McGee and she hopes to accomplish as much as she did. Violet credits her parents for teaching her morals and the importance of education, as well as her #1 supporter, her boyfriend who lives out of state.

CW Warriors Baketball Season has Begun!

Friday, January 15, 2016

The CW Warriors played a perfect game and completely overwhelmed Westchester Picks by a final score of 72-36.

This one was over early, as the Warriors combined efficient ball movement, hot shooting, and suffocating defense to build a 25-7 lead about midway through the first half, and continued to pull away, leading 40-13 at the break.  This was truly a total team effort, and all 11 players scored in the first half.  Westchester Picks were never able to get closer than 24 points in the second half, and the game was called off by the officials with 2:00 left on the clock under the league's mercy rule, which dictates that the game is over if one team is leading by 20 or more with two minutes left. 

All games are held at White Plains Middle School located at Highland Campus, 128 Grandview Avenue (second floor.)

 

 

 

Upcoming Games:
2/22 at 7pm: FMB1 vs. CW Warriors
3/3 at 7pm: CW Warriors vs. Ron Black's
3/7 at 7pm: Brazen Fox vs. CW Warriors

CW Welcomes New Day College Students

Friday, January 15, 2016

With the first snowflakes of the season in our area earlier, The College of Westchester welcomed our Day College Winter semester students. During orientation students were greeted by our Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Warren Rosenberg, who encouraged students to follow their dreams, “Set a goal for the week, the month, the semester, and a goal for your life. Starting college won’t be easy, it shouldn’t be easy. However, if you commit to complete, we’ll commit to make you succeed,” said Rosenberg.  Students were given the opportunity to meet with faculty, hear from current students share their college life experiences at CW, and introduced to course management system, Moodle.

CW Participates at ICIET 2016

Thursday, January 14, 2016

CW’s CIO, Kelly Walsh delivered a plenary session this week at the International Conference on Information and Education Technology 2016 (ICIET 2016). In his presentation entitled “Are You Ready for the Revolution? The Digitalization of Education is Happening,” Kelly examined the current state of numerous technology-enabled changes in education that are speeding the evolution of teaching, learning, and earning credentials, in schools across the world. “It was a real pleasure to share these insights with other educators from many different countries, and learn how most of us face similar challenges regardless of nationality, politics, and so on. The world of Higher Education is in many ways a truly global community,” Kelly said.

The purpose of the ICIET is to present the latest research and results related to Information and Education Technology topics. The focus of the conference is to establish an effective platform for institutions and industries to share ideas and to present the work of scientists, engineers, educators, and students from all over the world. The 4th annual International Conference on Information Technology took place in Los Angeles from January 4 – 6, 2016. For more information visit: http://iciet.org/
