Students of the 2013 academic year at Raritan Valley Community College are about to receive recognition for their outstanding work, and the community is invited. On April 29 in RVCC’s Grand Conference Room, “nota bene: Inspiring Minds to Bloom” will celebrate and display the best student works of the year, as selected by RVCC professors.

Because recognition, which has been shown to promote continued hard work and inspire hard work for others, is important for student growth in all areas of study, works from many different academic departments will be featured. Pieces at the event will include drawings, paintings, photography, sculptures, ceramics, dance performance videos, essays and research papers.

Student work will be displayed at the event for two sessions. The first session is 1-2:20PM and is intended for RVCC students. An evening session, “dress to impress”, will follow from 6-8PM and is where the awards presentation will take place. Live music will be performed during both sessions in a decorated room with food, drinks, desserts and a raffle. In previous years the nota bene event gained attention from local newspapers, radio stations and Channel 12 News.

The nota bene event is produced by the 15 member Event Production course at RVCC, taught by Christy Lamagna. When asked what to expect of the event this year, Lamagna said “Nota Bene is on its way to be the most excellent yet in the history of RVCC. Please come see your classmates’ outstanding work, and experience the wonderful event that students just like you put together. Join us on the 29th and inspire your mind to bloom”
