Baruch Students Protest Proposed CUNY and SUNY Tuition Hike

BARUCH COLLEGE–Members of Baruch College’s Undergraduate Student Government organized a protest against Governor Hochul’s proposed 3% tuition increase for CUNY and SUNY schools on Feb. 21.

Protestors also called for the passage of the New Deal For CUNY, a bill that would return CUNY’s tuition-free status — which lasted from its 1847 founding to 1976 — and increase the number of faculty and mental health counselors.
