A Student Town Hall, Minus Students

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Among the people seated in SUBO’s Jefferson-Williams Lounge during common hours on Tuesday, Feb. 5 were college president Michelle J. Anderson, VP for Student Affairs Ronald Jackson, Chief Legal and Labor Relations Officer Tony Thomas, Senior VP for Finance and Administration Alan Gilbert, Professor Ellen Tremper, and Graduate Student Organization President Keith Magnussen. They had assembled for the first of four college town halls scheduled this semester, meant “for students, by students.”

Among the people not in attendance at this event for students, by students, were students. Only twelve students showed up to this town hall – four of them student journalists, and two of them representatives from student government.
