Tuesday, May 24, 2016
NAMI

On Saturday, May 21st, The College of Westchester walked to support our local NAMI chapter (National Alliance on Mental Illness).

The CW team joined over 500 people and is proud to be able to raise awareness for NAMI, whose mission is advocating for access to services, treatment, support, research, and continual raising awareness on mental illness.

NAMI is an organization that offers the kind of understanding and care that only those who have lived the experience of mental illness can provide. They offer multiple programs to provide support to those that have a mental illness as well as those with a loved one that has a mental illness.

Thanks to the support of our CW’s NAMI on Campus Club, staff, and friends!

Congratulations Sigma Beta Delta, Phi Theta Kappa & BBA Honors Students!

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

CW honored and inducted 19 students from Phi Theta Kappa, 28 students from Sigma Beta Delta, and 10 students from the CW BBA Honors Program, during the recent Honors Ceremony. Opening remarks included Dr. Warren Rosenberg, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, and Mary Beth Del Balzo, President and CEO of The College of Westchester.

"Tonight you are receiving a very distinguished honor that will stay with you forever, just like your CW education. Being inducted into an honor society speaks volumes about you as an individual – everyone has a choice to work toward success or simply to coast along and you have chosen to succeed at the highest level," said President Del Balzo.

The purpose of Sigma Beta Delta is to encourage and recognize scholarship and achievement among business students. On the other hand, Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and encourages the academic achievement of two-year college students. The Honors program is designed to introduce high achieving BBA students to research. Those inducted must develop qualities of leadership, fellowship, and service. Congratulations to all of them!
