When talking about subtle ideas, it is best to be as clear as
possible. Here I go... Lehman College has taught me something
priceless. It has taught me that if you love what you do,
everything else falls into place. I am nearing the end of my
Sophomore year and this has been the message that the professors
and faculty have instilled. In addition, the faculty at Lehman
exhibit a positive attitude - my goal is to become a Physician's
Assistant and the idea I will take from Lehman is one that...

My job title is "College Assistant." Let us explore the
semantics of this title. An assistant is someone who helps out with
minor tasks, with the larger task often assigned to someone else.
While the definition works if you are explaining the requirements
of a college assistant to someone, it is insufficient when
considering what something means to each individual. My
understanding of my position is akin to that of a young child and a
superhero: I feel like I am saving the world! OK, perhaps...

I have been a Lehman College student for 8 years now (where does
the time go?)! I earned my Bachelor's degree in Social Work
and am now pursuing my Master's degree also in Social Work (Lehman
graduating class of 2013).
Lehman has been a wonderful place for me. I appreciate the
assistance of all the professors who have always been willing to go
the extra mile to help. They're dedicated to their profession
and passionate about their work. It's a beautiful feeling to meet
people that are living...

Okay everyone -- get the popcorn ready and set your
DVR's for October 10, 2012. The second episode of Law & Order:
SVU will be broadcast on that day. On August 2nd, Lehman Studios,
among other locations of Lehman College, hosted the recording of
parts of this episode. Many of our students worked as extras and
our staff assisted in the setup of the studio as a cooking show,
Livia's Italian Kitchen. Lots of fun for everyone and a great
experience as well.

If you were to tell me that I was going to like being back in
school, I would have told you that you were crazy! I was
unemployed and got a grant to take some classes and decided to take
the training classes at a college. Lehman College was on the list
as part of a government grant training program. Mary Dowling was
the first person I met and she became one of my biggest motivators.
She looked at me and said that "you seem to be taking classes here
and there, why don't you try to go to... Read More »

I have spent 9 semesters at Lehman, and I AM FINALLY GOING
GRADUATE! But I am glad that I ended up at Lehman. My
experiences have been great. As a freshman, I knew I wanted to go
into political science and save the world, but joining Student
Government actually got me working. It helped me realize that
networking has the word "work" in it for a reason. Since I was able
to get to know so many people and organizations, I was able to
create my own major, study abroad on a full scholarship, and...

I am in an auditorium of Fordham University, sitting in one of
the front rows. I sit in my silky white gown, feeling anxious of
what I have to do- give a valedictorian speech in front of the
audience filled with school faculty members, proud parents, family
members, and friends. But though I was nervous, I felt honored to
be given the title of the top student in my high school senior
class And if that was not enough, I was accepted into three
of my desired colleges, Maryland Institute of... Read More »

some colleagues and I attended and presented at a conference on
Student Success sponsored by the Association of American Colleges
and Universities (AAC&U) www.aacu.org in Seattle, Washington.
Seattle did not disappoint in regards to weather, it was grey and
chilly, but the Pike Street Market has some great fish eateries
that we were able to enjoy. Grilled salmon with a pesto mayonaisse
..... mmmm tasty.
Oh yeah - education conference.
Besides an inspiring plenary speech by Prof....
