2019 William C. Hine Awardee EMILY SNYDER

The William C. Hine Distinguished Service Award honors Chapter Councilors for their commitment to promoting lifelong learning, dedication to serving adult learners, and leadership to the Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society.

EMILY SNYDER

 2019 William C. Hine Awardee

Emily Snyder directs all operations for the Office of Commuter Student Services and Off-Campus Living at Stony Brook University, which serves a commuter student population of over 15,000, approximately 10% of which are identified as non-traditional students/adult learners. Her work focuses heavily on building community and support services that encourage a vibrant and holistic college experience for this substantial cohort, with a spectrum of diverse needs and life circumstances. Offering this valuable group of students a “home away from home”, ways to connect with others who are sharing a similar student experience, and opportunities to be recognized has brought tremendous pride in and confirmation of the importance of this work. Emily’s goal is to connect with the institution’s non-traditional population as early on in their academic journey as possible, a primary motivator while she collaborated to create the University’s non-traditional student specific orientation experience.

Emily established the Phi Omega chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda in 2011, which has provided an essential platform to highlight the incredible academic achievements of Stony Brook University’s adult learners. Engaging adult learners in campus life and fostering relationships with and among the non-traditional student population has been tremendously rewarding, and energizes and inspires Emily to continue her work with and for this demographic. She is eager to support Alpha Sigma Lambda’s Board of Directors this year and to provide any insight that may be helpful to chapters across the country.

To contact Emily email: wchawardee@alphasigmalambda.org

“One of Snyder’s most notable contributions to non-traditional student support was her involvement in the creation of the Non-Traditional Student Orientation Experience, held as part of new student orientation, which launched in 2012. This program introduces students to support services prior to their first semester and offers them a chance to ask questions to a panel of peers comprised of alumni and returning non-traditional students. Students also have the chance to start building community with one another and to network with advocates across campus.” Read more …

Eta Lambda Thanksgiving Food Drive

On the Saturday morning prior to Thanksgiving week, each year, this Alpha Sigma Lambda chapter assembles gift baskets and goes shopping with the gift cards and monetary donations they’ve received so they can make the holiday special for families in their community.

The Eta Lambda members are the originators of this project at Providence College and are at the forefront every year, for nearly 20 years, creating a Thanksgiving tradition for the chapter!  “We have been very successful, and it’s really fun to do!”  Anne Nagle, Assistant Dean of School of Continuing Education at Providence College and Alpha Sigma Lambda Treasurer.

The Eta Lambda Thanksgiving food drive is running through Friday, 11/16 and is collecting canned and boxed goods, grocery store gift cards, and monetary donations. 

If you are interested in donating, please send donations to:

 School of Continuing Education office, Harkins Hall Room 109, PC, 1 Cunningham Square,

Providence, RI  02918.

They are hoping to collect enough donations for 20 complete dinner baskets, including turkeys which will then be delivered to a local social service agency and distributed to families that are in need in the Providence, Rhode Island area through D.A.R.E. (Direct Action for Rights and Equality) located on Lockwood Street. Learn more about this project: http://bit.ly/2OodOl0   Have questions? Email anagle (at) providence.edu or call 401-865-2817.

Belinda B. Castiblanco

My name is Belinda B. Castiblanco. I was born in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador in Central America in 1978.  My mother brought me to the United States when I turned 17 years old. By the time I turned 20 years old I got married and had my first son.  I spent many years working in different factories and, at the same time, trying to find the time and means to learn English and continue my university studies. I am an Emergency Medical Technician and a CPR instructor.  At the moment, I am enrolled in the Spanish Literature and The Foreign Languages Teacher Education programs with a minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the Stony Brook University of New York.

Currently, I live in Long Island, New York with my husband, Sidney, and my sons Diego and Jeremy. I am a member of three honor societies and the Dean’s List. Recently, I won the Best Undergraduate Essay Award in the Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature in my university, however, becoming a recipient of the Dr. Alicia Savage Scholarship Award is one of the greatest honors I have received during my academic career.

I am very grateful to the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society. My goals are to become a Spanish Literature teacher, share my culture with my future students, and never stop learning.
