ACADEMICS: Magnet Programs Travel to NYC

On March 3-7th, students from the Allied Health, Bio Health and Scholars Academy Magnet programs traveled to New York City for the purpose of a field study to expose the students to important cultural institutions and to engage them in current trends in research and design to broaden their perspective on future career paths. The following is an account of the trip from student Andrew Marino.

New York City, the city that never sleeps, a place of endless opportunity and hope all wrapped up in 500 square miles. A city that holds 8.4 million people, with pockets of science, culture and history. We visited everywhere on our first day. Our Manhattan bus tour led us to Central Park and all throughout the area, even to the luxury apartment buildings where Beyonce lives in Brooklyn. Doug, our tour guide, gave us local food tips and gave us an explanation of the differences in New York accents. We spent our evening in Times Square eating dinner and shopping.

The second day encompassed the most important part of the trip. The CUNY Research Science Center. This amazing building is the home to cutting edge research and all of the most modern equipment. The part I personally toured was the nano and micro lab which involved machines that could manipulate material at the molecular level and a microscope that could create the highest resolution ever. This visit was the highlight of the trip. We returned to Times Square for dinner and then went to see Wicked on Broadway, which was absolutely incredible.

The third day included a trip to the United Nations and Radio City Music Hall. It was snowing constantly most of the morning and we sure did experience it because we walked from our hotel to the United Nations. These places introduced the history and culture of this amazing city. During this time, we found out that our flight had been cancelled, but we were given complementary tickets to see the Lion King off Broadway, which was not the worst thing that could happen.

ACADEMICS: Scholars Sophomores Advocacy Group

The S.C. Department of Education reported in 2014 that 10.4% of teens surveyed were sexually assaulted by someone their age, primarily their boyfriend or girlfriend. This 10.4% represents only those who spoke up. Often, victims do not report or talk of their assault out of fear of being humiliated or punished by the one that violated them. In addition, victims are often blamed and their rights are violated when they do report the crime. The Scholars Academy Class of 2017 has made it their mission to advocate for the legal rights of teenage victims and to educate the general public about teen sexual assault. Follow us on Instagram and Twitter at @noteapeonrape to learn more about our cause and share our cause with others to make a difference. No more violence. No more victim blaming. No more tape on rape!
