CITY COLLEGE THURSDAY DURING CLUB HOURS

At City College Thursday, December 8th, students will be gathering in front of the administration building to pass out flyers that have facts about the tuition increases.  If you are interested in getting involved with Students United, or interested in meeting other students who are pushing back against these increases, please meet in front of the Administration building during club hours (12:30 to 2).

Every single CUNY student is being affected by the tuition increase.  If you know about the tuition increases come out and be part of the conversation, if you don’t know about them come out and be part of a conversation.  We need to be active participants in this fight against tuition increases.

Chancellor Goldstein is coming to John Jay…. He just voted to raise our tuition Monday!!!!!!!
Goldstein, the man in charge of CUNY, earns almost $600,000 a year; THAT IS MORE THAN OBAMA, yet he states there’s no money and that they need to raise tuition.

Demand that he cut his PAYCHECK, not our right to an affordable education!

Banks got Bailed Out/Students got SOLD OUT

“Several hundred protesters are currently marching near Baruch College at 24th Street at Lexington Avenue to demonstrate against the planned $300/year (over five years) tuition hikes that the City University Board of Trustees is expected to vote on this afternoon, as well as a need for “democratic accountability.” There’s a heavy NYPD presence, with police on scooters attempting to funnel the demonstrators into barricaded areas and off the street.” – the gothamist
