Honestly, I have grown up hearing about the neighboring country that is the United States. Having previously studied Nutrition at Ryerson University/a university in Toronto (yes, that is in Canada), I had so many ideas of what America and Americans were like. Little did I know (at the time) that I would be completing my Masters in the small city of Buffalo, New York. During my time at D’Youville, I’ve had the opportunity to learn many invaluable lessons, both in and outside of the classroom setting, that I am grateful for. No, this is not a blatant advertisement telling prospective high school or transfer students to come to my awesome school. These are some of the reasons why my college isn’t half bad.
As a history and sociology (dual) major, I did an internship last year that allowed me to observe high school history classes in Buffalo, NY. I observed classes including: Global 9, Global 10, U.S History, African American Studies, and the Holocaust. I compared these lectures with those of my college classes and noted the differences in topics and the way they were taught.
Well everyone, November is upon us, and that means only about four weeks of this Fall semester at D’Youville remains! November is when things start to get busy between family and the holidays, as well as school.
So, in an effort to help you guys out, I would like to share some of my tips for helping you get through the home stretch here, and of course the big one: Finals Week.
The nursing workforce is not as diverse as it could be. D’Youville College is playing a role to change that through the Nursing Workforce Diversity Program.
DYC is one of only 41 schools nationwide to be awarded a federal Nursing Workforce Diversity Grant. This program helps build nursing leaders in under-served populations in Buffalo – at the high school and college level.
