Byte Knights Website Development Workshop

by

Byte Knights is a club on campus for Information Technology. Recently, the club organizers Derek O’Hanlon, senior and president; Nicholas Viviano, senior and secretary; and Andrew Shultis, senior and treasurer, all came together to host a Web Development workshop for all Mount students.

Many Mount students came to the event and learned how to design and develop websites using specific technology like HTML and CSS. In today’s society we use computers heavily for businesses and such, so being able to use these technologies is an advantage.

The club officers plan to organize and host similar events for students to come to learn more about the web and become just as advanced as an IT student.

In addition to this workshop, Byte Knights also hosts a the Mobile Application development workshop, teaches coding to students at Newburgh Armory, organizes field trips to New Public Radio and IBM, and invites guest speakers from IT industry.

For more information about different events coming up go to the website http://byteknights.msmc.edu/

My First Year: Q & A with Day’sha Tyson ’22

by

Name: Day’sha Tyson

Entry Year and Status: 2018 (Freshman)

Major/Intended Major:
Nursing

How did you decide on your academic or career path?

I chose the nursing program because of my interest in how things work and because I have a desire to help others. Also, because it’s a great way to provide and take care of my mother.

How did you overcome obstacles during your first year?

I will admit I struggled in the beginning because the transition from high school is very different. But, as time tried, I learned different study methods to help me with my classes. Most of all, I reminded myself that my purpose is bigger than just me.

What advice would you give to first-year students who are struggling?

My advice would be that it’s okay to ask for help.  Half of the students don’t know what we are doing, especially in the first year. Also, focus on the more important things, not just the fun aspect of college but what you came here for. Continue Reading

Habitat for Humanity

by

At Mount Saint Mary College, there are many clubs that help to give back to the community. One such club is Habitat for Humanity.  The Mount Saint Mary College chapter of Habitat for Humanity has done a lot to give back to communities over the years and continues to grow with more student involvement each year. The president, Katie Hertlein, is a senior this year and has been running the club for 3 years now.

Katie spoke about how the club gives back to Newburgh. “We work with Habitat For Humanity of Greater Newburgh. This organization has allowed us to come on worksites which we attend on Saturdays, working alongside the organization. Many houses have been worked on by our Habitat group. In the spring is an annual Walk for Housing which takes you around the streets where Habitat houses have been completed, or are currently being worked on.” Continue Reading
