Baruch Athletes Divided on Booster Requirement

BARUCH COLLEGE–All SUNY and CUNY students must get the booster shot by March 1 to return to in-person classes, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced as part of the Winter Surge Plan 2.0 on December 31.

Soon after, on Jan 5., CUNY Chancellor  Félix Matos Rodríguez sent out a system-wide email informing students they had to get the booster.

Some student athletes said they will not comply with the mandate, including Baruch College senior basketball player Jack Reese.
