NOVA Alexandria Campus Student Ambassadors lead One Day Immersion Conference in NYC


Hello NOVA Alexandria Campus,

October 30, through November 1, a team of twelve NOVA students and two faculty spent three days in NYC, preparing and assisting the One Day Immersion in Media, Entertainment and Technology ( ODI) Conference hosted at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business and produced by Dolly Wolf Enterprises, via financial backing from HBO, The Cable Center, Spectrum Networks and other corporate grants.

Our students worked alongside students from Pace, Fordham and NYU and were the only Community College represented among a field of top university students. NOVA’s team was lauded by Dolly Wolf, CEO, as being the hardest working and most enthusiastic team there.

Our NOVA students were responsible for registration, trafficking, coordinating meetings and workshops, as well as accommodating the needs of over fifty of top executives who donate their time to present panels, workshops and individual coaching sessions for the over three hundred attendees. Our students had personal contact with folks such as John Dickerson of CNN, Kathleen Finch, CEO of Discovery, Jana Henthorn, President of the Cable Center and many other equally impressive and generous executives who donate their time every year.

One of the team’s planning meetings turned into a party with an inspiring impromptu motivational talk from Evan Shapiro, CEO of National Lampoon. All NOVA students had the privilege of being enrolled in the highly selective and limited enrollment leadership workshops by Google, Namic and Spectrum Networks.

After one of the work sessions, the team was treated to the Broadway Show, Hadestown, last year’s winner of 8 Tony awards. This gift, was given by Zenita Henderson, Vice President of Marketing for SCTE. The student team comes at the invitation of Dolly Wolf who first came to Alexandria NOVA twelve years ago via the ground work of Dean Jimmie Mcclellan. She requested that these students be selected and coached by Professor Lucy Holsonbake. Kirstin Riddick of Tilt was also an accompanying and much needed Sponsor.

Glance at the photo of the team above and if you have time, skim the student biographies on the ODI website. Then pat yourself on the back. We are truly building a GLOBAL Citizenry. Student victories in work ethic, camaraderie, humility and kindness don’t just happen due to one class or one teacher. They are representative of our values, of who we are as a community and of the truth in the African adage, “It takes a village.”

We are quite a village.



NOVA Alexandria Campus Celebrates International Education Week 2019

Hello NOVA Alexandria Campus,

International Education Week (IEW), November 18-22, 2019, is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

We encourage the participation of all individuals and institutions interested in international education and exchange activities, including schools, colleges and universities, embassies, international organizations, businesses, associations, and community organizations. Individuals and institutions tend to hold IEW events as it is convenient for them in their local communities. We want you to celebrate as much and as often as you like.

To that end, we are providing promotional materials that allow you the flexibility to promote events whenever they may be planned!
