ASSOCIATION NEWS
The halls of the New York State Capitol and the Legislative Office Building were buzzing with students and staff from APC member colleges on Tuesday, February 25 for the annual APC Student Advocacy Day. The event kicked off on Monday night with a student “boot camp” where staff from Hinman Straub and Corning Place Communications provided an overview of the legislative landscape in Albany, and an outline of how the meetings with elected officials would go and what to expect. Attendees were treated to a special guest speaker on Monday night, NY State Assemblymember Nathalia Fernandez, who represents the 80th district in the Bronx, and who is also the aunt of an LIM College student. On Tuesday, students and college leaders highlighted their success and on-time graduation rates. Students also shared personal stories of how programs like TAP, ETA and HEOP helped make college a reality for them. In all, over 75 students and staff fanned out across the Capitol and went to over 100 meetings with 
legislators!
