HUNTER COLLEGE–Students and faculty of CUNY rallied for expanded funding in programs for low-income students in front of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Manhattan office yesterday. 

The Governor’s executive budget will be released in mid-January, prompting CUNY Rising, an alliance made up of over 30 student, union and community organizations, to gather on the cold Thursday afternoon. Among the crowd were students from Hunter’s NYPIRG, an on-campus public education organization.
