Let’s Get the Party Started!

This September students, faculty and staff came together to celebrate the start of the fall 2022 semester at Quadfest and the Resource Fair on the Bethlehem campus and Rock the Block on the Monroe campus.

Rock the Block

A parade of international students raised their flags high at the start of Quadfest on September 8, and a DJ kicked off the fun at Rock the Block on September 15. Clubs like Film Society, Spartan Scribes, Good Growers, Political Science Club, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society and more were there to show students fun ways to get involved on campus. Art Connections club had materials to make friendship bracelets and marble magnets, Japanese Cultural Program showed attendees how to make their own origami and Science Club had handmade soaps to for sale. The Association for Non-Traditional Students (ANTS) was there to spread the word about their club which ensures adult students have a community of peers at NCC. 

At Rock the Block, students built their own bamboo plant with colorful water beads, designed their own dry erase board, and got artsy with sand art sculptures! No one left either of the events hungry, with pretzel bites, snow cones, cookies and more delicious treats available for all.  

On both campuses, Admissions offices gave out information on work-study opportunities (which current students can find on Workday), Career Services provided information on Job Shadow opportunities and Internship Information Session, and First Impressions had career clothing for those needing something sharp for an interview, internship or job. 

At the resource fair on the Bethlehem campus on September 6, students learned about volunteer and internship opportunities as well as resources in the community, like the Bradbury Sullivan LGBT Community Center, Big Brothers. Big Sisters and Safe Harbor. Nature’s Way Market, an Easton health food store, had a sampling of dusted cocoa almonds and roasted spicy pumpkin seeds and made sure to mention a 10% discount in their store for students.  

The semester is off to a great start, and we can’t wait to see what our students take on this fall!
