INTRODUCING NSLS

INTRODUCING NSLS What is NSLS? N SLS stands for the National Society of Leadership and Success

What is NSLS?

What is NSLS?

NSLS stands for the National Society of Leadership and Success also known as Sigma Alpha Pi. The organization is made up of students who have shown leadership ability and have taken the steps necessary to set them on a path for success. The NSLS provides a whole host of benefits to its members via speaker broadcasts, success coaches, and access to exclusive scholarships and awards.

coaches, and access to exclusive scholarships and awards. On February 9, the NSLS Binghamton University chapter

On February 9, the NSLS Binghamton University chapter had their first new members orientation. Students learned the steps of the leadership development program, schedule of events, and mingled amongst their peers with whom they will be undergoing the induction process with. Activities for the event helped students to think about their leadership goals and enhance their communication skills. NSLS also osted its first Speaker Broadast featuring Emmy award winning television newscaster for ABC news and anchor for Nightline, Juju Chang. The remaining broadcasts are listed below.

The success of the orientation leaves a great mark for the NSLS at Binghamton who has just recently began a chapter on campus. The society is the nation’s largest leadership honor society and the new Binghamton chapter is the latest to join the other 507 already established chapters nationwide, comprised of 577,705 members. The society uses a step-by-step program during its induction process to develop leadership skills, provide a way for self-reflection and expose to students its nationwide network.

The NSLS membership, which is lifelong, provides students with access to a myriad of benefits ranging from exclusive scholarships, on campus events, and an online job bank. Eligible students are often nominated by a supervisor, professor or other faculty member. Society membership has shown a track record for success. Around 89% of society members start careers in fields of their choice and 83% of those students directly attribute their success to their involvement in the NSLS program. Having just begun their chapter on the Binghamton University campus and given the NSLS’s impressive track record, we look forward to seeing the extent of their impact on the Bearcat community.

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY

8 Things You Should Know About Parade Day

8 Things You Should Know About Parade Day

Oh Parade Day, no matter who you are, the mere mention of the day illicits a reaction. Most students can not wait for it, faculty loath it, and townies seem to be the only ones properly celebrating it. Whether or not you can even recall your last parade day you know it in your liver that this year’s Parade Day is certain to be a blast. With the festivities less than a week away, here are 8 things you should know about Parade Day so that you can feel silly while trying to recall them in the middle of your day-long Irish binge.

to recall them in the middle of your day-long Irish binge. 1. There is an actual

1. There is an actual Parade, Crazy right?

It is all too easy to forget while in a drunken stupor that the lines of people marching in formation are there for a reason. If you would like to check it out yourself the parade begins at 1:30 p.m. at Court St. & Fayette.

2. The Parade comes a week early for a reason

The annual St. Patrick’s day parade is actually the same parade held later in New York City. This is done to prevent scheduling conflicts for the New York and Pennsylvania bands that attend. So take a look because these are the pros!

3. The Parade is kind of a big deal

The city of Binghamton has a large Irish- American population. Therefore the parade is a rather large point of pride for a city full of Irish immigrants. As Binghamton Mayor Richard David puts it “Regardless of what backgrounds and cultures we come from, on Parade Day and on St. Patrick’s Day, all Binghamtonians are Irish.”

4. The Townies get to enjoy themselves too

While you will probably be crawling along State Street, Binghamtonians have plenty of options for having a great time with a slew of bars plenty far away from Bearcats, restaurants that are eager to feed intoxicated clientele, and even a massive afterparty

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY

held annually at a local high school.

5. Kids love parades

While not something exclusive to Binghamton’s Parade Day. It is important to remember that there are plenty of families who are just trying to enjoy the parade and would appreciate being left relatively alone. So think of the children, and please mind your drunken manners

If you have ever wanted to set PR while dressed as a drunk leprechaun then look no farther. Not only do the runners get lead the parade, there is a $500 first place prize! That is enough to buy a new costume after you have soiled the first one.

With a projected high/low of 34/22 degrees, 10-20 mph winds, and cloudy skies you should absolutely get a solid layer of beer jacket going early on. However, it is nothing bearcats haven’t dealt with before.

8. This may be the biggest Parade Day yet!

Unfortunately, the announced Binghamton University Spring 2017 Schedule contains an early mid-semester break from March 3-7, which means residence halls will be closing. Therefore, on campus residents (of legal age) will be sure to turn out in droves to make up for the year upcoming. So let’s make this Parade Day a day to barely remember!

It is Women’s History Month, and I had the great pleasure of getting to talk to Susan Lewis, the associate director of the Office

of International Programs Ms. Lewis is a passionate diversity here on campus, her experiences.

What is your name, occupation and how long have you been here in Binghamton?

Susan B. Lewis, Associate Development and Global Health and Safety. I’ve been Office of International Programs since 1997.

What is your role in Binghamton University?

history is near and dear to my heart. Early studies of women’s history led to a much more gendered approach to history more generally, and helped change the focus from top-down political and military history -- the history of great men -- to a focus on ordinary people’s lives and actions and the collective force of that. But the impact that women have had on history is still under-recognized and undervalued, so it’s important to keep shining a light on their roles in historical events.

What women in your life have inspired you, and why?

I’m blessed to have been surrounded by strong, intelligent, resourceful women in my

life, beginning with my mother, who had MS (multiple

embraced life and was engaged in the world. Both my parents also gave me the gift of curiosity and a love of reading, and of history, which has helped me to stay engaged in the world. My sister, who is 2 ½ years older than I, has also always been an inspiration and role model.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments, and one of your greatest challenges, here in BU?

My proudest accomplishment is the hundreds of exchange students I’ve welcomed here from all over the world, and the sincere care and hospitality I’ve been able to give them. I think they’ve left here knowing they made a contribution to the rich fabric of our University and with an appreciation of the unique experience and supportive environment they found here.

My greatest challenge has been managing a very small, specialized program that requires exceptions and work-arounds to the general processes of the campus, which are designed for the masses, not for individualized cases, and making campus constituencies aware of why those exceptions are necessary and of the valuable contribution that the exchange students make to the University.

What is your message to young women in the University, and everywhere?

If you are Binghamton students, then you are smart and capable young women and have a unique and valuable contribution to make to the world. You can overcome any obstacle, so go out there and make the world a better place!

Culture Chat with Lilian Li, Junior Political Science Major and Outstanding Student Leader

This month I interviewed Lilian Li, a junior political

science major, who is highly involved on campus as a student leader. As an international student, she chose to

study political science,

her second language, English. She truly has jumped out of her comfort zone and still remains actively involved on campus and works to help the campus continue to grow. Here is what she had to say:

What do you study and what are your involvements on campus?

am a Political science major at Harpur college. I am a professional chair and fundraiser

I

chair on the International Connection executive board, a residential assistant for Newing

Delaware, a MRC host for diversity talk show, and I

office program coordinator and served as a speaking lab consultant. I have attended and continue to attend many events on campus and have connection clubs such as HKES and

Chinascope. Most recently I am also starting a new

to build connection between performers and performing stages.

How did you decide to come to Binghamton? How did you first get involved with Binghamton University and the surrounding community?

I saw pictures of Binghamton campus online after I

pretty from the pictures that I decided to come experience for myself. To be honest, after seeing the beautiful Fall, I didn’t expect the winter to be this long and cold. Quimbamba Latin Dance Team was my first official club that I attended and performed for at Binghamton. I was super nervous in the audition, but Quimbamba members were very nice and friendly, and the group was very diverse that they helped me out a lot.

Among all your involvement, which one do you think you influence the campus the most?

International connection definitely. I joined the executive board freshman year. During my 3 years in the club, we held a lots of general body meetings playing small games to get international and multicultural background students to interact with domestic students. Every semester we have a big event and IC night is the biggest among the year. As professional chair, I reach out to individual and groups who want to perform and invite them to perform for IC night. Through my job as professional chair, I helped people realize

CULTURAL ORGANIZATION LISTING

their performing dreams and build my own network with performers and performing groups. My connection with multicultural clubs now is helping my RA responsibility. I help my residents get involved on campus and introduce them to different clubs.

What is your future plan on campus?

I would like to keep volunteering in my previous club and hosting MRC diversity show.

Before I graduate next semester, I would like to share my recourses to the performers.

I hope get my new club DL Entertainment SA charter. And encourage shy but talented individuals to perform.

What does diversity/ culture mean to you?

It means to respect and care about everyone from different cultures. Binghamton is doing really good on promoting diversity I think.

What would you suggest to make Binghamton a better community?

I think different culture groups helping each other and doing collaborations together

would make Binghamton a better community. This way people from different culture would have the platforms to meet each other and dinteract with each other. The campus would be more diverse.

WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH

March first is the start of Women’s History Month! During Women’s History Month the contributions that women have made to history, culture and policy are celebrated. During this month incredible women from different time periods and all around the world are recognized. Recognized women include abolitionist Harriet Tubman who was a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad that led over 300 slaves to freedom. Eleanor Roosevelt, a human rights activist, fought not only for equality of the sexes but also the rights of African- Americans, lower class citizens and the unemployed making her another recognized figure in Women’s History. Another important woman who is celebrated during Women’s History Month is suffragist Susan B. Anthony, who fought for women’s right to vote as well as the right for women to own their own property, women’s labor organizations and the abolition of slavery. Without these women our society would be incredibly different today and we would have so much farther to go in the fight for equal rights for all people.

Women’s History Month dates back to 1981 when congress created the first “Women’s History Week” and the first official Women’s History Month was in 1987. In recent years the month has been referred to Women’s “HerStory Month” in order to place emphasis on women, instead of men, from a historical perspective. The term “HerStory” was created by Robin Morgan in her novel Sisterhood is Powerful. This month is crucial because it allows extraordinary women from all different cultures and backgrounds to receive recognition for helping to shape the world into a more equal and diverse place.

to shape the world into a more equal and diverse place. Women today continue to serve

Women today continue to serve as leaders of our society, inspiring movements and fighting for equal gender rights. Serena WIlliams,a seventeen-time grand-slam singles winner, has been a leader not only in the sports world but in fighting against unrealistic societal expectations that are placed on women’s bodies. Being an African-American athlete, Williams’s body differs greatly from what society sees as the ideal body type for women but she continues to be proud of her body and encourage young girls and women to be confident in themselves as well. Women like Serena Williams who strive for gender equality in society help to create a better society each and every day and by recognizing them during Women’s History Month more women in society can be inspired to do great things.

Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for Women’s History Month events from the Women’s Student Unions and other campus organizations; as they will be popping up on B-line soon! -Dominique Russel, Undergraduate Marketing Intern
