Covering Sandy for The Bronx Journal

The Bronx may have been spared the worst of Hurricane Sandy, but many in the Lehman community felt her wrath.  Lehman's Multimedia Journalism staff and students were touched by the storm and many were moved to report the events around them in the Bronx, Brooklyn, the Rockaways and New Jersey.

I'm going to miss this place...

In 2006, I was graduating from another college with my associate's degree. With no real plan other than the idea of wanting to study journalism at Lehman College, I honestly couldn't wait to begin my journey.

As I began developing the course content, I reflected upon the traditional communication process and the normal “buzz...

Academic Advising

While I carry many different responsibilities as an Academic Advisor: technology projects, teaching in-service coursework, writing, committee work, etc., my favorite part of my job is the part described by my title. I enjoy advising students.

Much of my time spent with students is focused on helping them to choose courses that fulfill their graduation requirements.  Sounds simple? Yes, but only sometimes. Sometimes a student will need to talk through various alternatives—for example, choices...
