MSiA-LI: Midterm Mocktail Mixer

The Fall Semester midterm period can be a stressful time for the adult learner. It marks a point during the term where students must take time to assess where they are in their studies and how to make sure they don’t fall behind.  In addition to all the academic demands, students must find ways to fit studies into the numerous familial, communal, and professional celebrations marking the holiday season.

The MSiA Midterm Mocktail Mixer is an opportunity to join fellow ESC students, enjoy refreshments, and engage in discussions that will help you organize and better manage your time when there seems to be so little of it available.




Saturday 11/12/16 * 12 pm

If there are any MSiA members in the Hudson or Northeast areas there are events co-sponsored by MSiA you may be interested. The film screenings of “Daddy Don’t Go” on Sept 19 (Newburgh) and 21 (Schenectady). You may sign up on the college’s event page for either (or both!).
“Daddy Don’t Go” is a tough but tender journey that aims to illuminate the everyday struggles of

disadvantaged fathers. This intimate, verité film pays homage to every man who negates the

“deadbeat dad” stereotype with a deep love for his children. By allowing the viewer extraordinary access into the daily lives of its subjects, “Daddy Don’t Go” will remove the negative lens through which underprivileged fathers are currently viewed and offer audiences a new image of the American family.
