Campus Reads presents Brock Clarke

Book Cover: An Arsonists Guide to Writers Homes in New EnglandAuthor of The Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes
in New England

Tuesday November 4
New Location - Library Living Room
12 noon - 2 pm

The student editors of The Eye, NHTI's student literary journal, chose Clarke's Arsonist's Guide as the fall Campus Reads title for its humor, literary quality, local flavor, and the likeability of its bumbling, troubled narrator, Sam Pulsifer.  Sam never meant to destroy a New England landmark or murder two people in the blaze when he burned down Emily Dickinson's home.  However, after serving 19 years in prison, finishing college, and starting a career and a family, he still finds himself desperately struggling to put his past behind him.

His task becomes more difficult when the New England homes of Robert Frost, Edith Wharton, Herman Melville, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and even a replica of Henry David Thoreau's cabin at Walden Pond, go up in smoke.  Pulsifer, a prime suspect, knows that he has to find the arsonist and make peace with his past to clear his name.

It's Rad Tech Week at NHTI

by Allen Anderson, Rad Tech Freshman

skeletonIt’s that time of year again.  From November 3 to November 7, the Radiology Department will be celebrating National Radiologic Technology Week.  In an effort to share information and inspire interest in a dynamic field, the students of the Radiologic Technology program would like to invite you, the students of NHTI, to participate in the planned events.

Come by the library lobby during Rad Tech Week and view the display.  Here you will learn of the historic beginnings of the field of Radiology, dating back to November of 1895, when x-rays were first discovered by German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen. A major milestone in New Hampshire’s radiologic history is that the very first use of x-rays in the United States took place at Dartmouth College.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov 4 & 5, come by the Student Center and visit the informational table, set up and manned by current Radiologic Technology students, who are enrolled in and pursuing careers in this area of Diagnostic Medical Imaging.  These students will be available from noon to 2 pm to answer questions and share experiences.  Anyone undecided about a career choice can learn how their general studies could one day lead to a career in the exciting fields of x-rays, MRI, CT, ultrasound, mammography, or possibly even nuclear medicine.  Further enjoy the festivities by participating in our raffle and other fun activities.

The future continues to get brighter for radiologic science, and NHTI is a great place to prepare for it.  Each member of the academic staff has years of experience, which lays an outstanding foundation for their added years of teaching experience.  Classroom curriculum, paired with hands-on training in numerous participating healthcare institutions in the area, will provide a more than adequate means to this desired end. The high pass rate on the National Registry exam is proof in numbers.  So come one, come all.  Look, listen, and have fun!
