Greetings to all NYCE students and parents!

The medical science class went on a trip to Jersey College Nursing School in the morning. First they heard guest speakers from the school speak about their jobs, then they were able to practice CPR, and then they were able to tour the school and see the mannequins that nursing students practice with!

 

Students later ventured out to Brooklyn for a day of fun at Luna Park, an amusement park that borders the famous Coney Island Beach & Boardwalk. There, students went on “extreme thrill rides”, including the Circus Coaster and the iconic Cyclone rollercoaster. Afterwards, students went to the original Nathan’s hotdog stand for chili cheese dogs and popcorn shrimp. Then they shopped at the various shops along the boardwalk. Here is just a glimpse of all the fun we had:

First College Visit Day!

Brown4

The Ivy League conjures up images of hallowed halls of academia, selectivity of admission, and the pursuit of academic excellence. The Oxbridge NYCE students all had the chance today to explore Ivy League institutions with the trips up north to Brown University in Providence, RI, and Yale University in New Haven, CT, and down south to Princeton University in NJ, and University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, PA. In addition to the buses out of New York, one group crossed the street to explore Columbia University and took the subway to another great institution, New York University in lower Manhattan. Many students are sporting attire acquired in College bookstores up and down the East Coast! Next Tuesday is another day devoted to touring college campuses and seeing what kind of school would be the best fit for their tertiary education.
