On Thursday May 23rd, NR Student Activities (NRSA) ran its first “Get Spotted” campaign; an Email and Facebook blast went out notifying students that on Thursday NRSA staff would be out looking to spot four lucky students wearing the NRSA T’s around campus.
The four students were spotted in several locations at different times of the day. We spotted our first winner in the Library, the second student in Milavec hall, the third student in the Mustang Café, and the last lucky student was running in the rain on his way to class. The four lucky winners won 2 tickets to any on or off campus event (i.e. Dorney Park, Six Flags, Paint Balling, Lake Compounce, and many more.) Will we spot you next? Check our Facebook and your email for the next “Get Spotted” day. Don’t have NRSA T-Shirt Yet?
Zumba instructor Shelia Nesmith was extremely excited to be able to return to sweat and shake it up with our students and staff in the MAC. “Zumba is so much fun, you work out hard, sweat and you don’t even feel it till you’re done,” ~ Charez Weste.

More than 40 students and professional chefs converged on the New Rochelle Campus to compete in the Greater New York Culinary Challenge (GNYCC) at the Culinary Arts Center. Besides medals awarded at this competition, there was another award at stake: The Dean’s Cup. This award, given by Dean Frank C. Costantino to the outstanding student culinarian, was on the line for ten of Monroe’s most accomplished young culinary competitors. The competition was an “iron chef” format which had the students preparing an entrée from a basket of ingredients. First year student Rossella Cangialosi, Barry Tech BOCES, won the inaugural Dean’s Cup with a silver medal for her Sautéed Chicken Breast with Mushroom Sauce. Runner-up to the cup, also a silver medal winner, Sade Aguila, 2011 America’s Best HS Chef from Food and Finance, recorded a milestone medal, earning the 400th competition medal won by Monroe Culinary since April 2009.
