OPINION: In Order to Have Students in a Town Hall, You Must First Let Students Know of a Town Hall

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Last week was the first of the four town halls that students had demanded from the Brooklyn College administration. Unfortunately, students did not show up.

A few days before the town hall on Tuesday, February 5, the editor of the other campus newspaper texted me asking if I was going to the town hall. I was confused because I had heard of no such event. I asked around if other people knew about it, and many shook their head no. There were no fliers, posters, tweets, or Facebook posts about the town hall. So how were students supposed to know about it?
