Free Support Sessions for Baruch Students
Being a student is more stressful than ever during this pandemic crisis. To help students cope, Baruch is offering sessions every Tuesday from 1-2 PM.
These free sessions will offer a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental space for students to process the current health crisis and learn concrete coping skills. During sessions, students can learn helpful information, reduce distress, and realize that they are not alone in their feelings of isolation, stress, and anxiety.
To participate in these support sessions, send an email to Alyssa.Deitchman@baruch.cuny.edu from your Baruch student email account, and we will send you the Zoom link.
Some Good News…
Hello fellow students. Things haven’t been going great on campus in the last few weeks as we all know, but in light of that, I’d like to share some good news with those who haven’t heard. In a time filled with financial strain for students, Baruch is doing its share to lighten the load. As detailed in a recent letter from the chancellor, Baruch will be doing the following to help lighten the load on students:
- With the support of Governor Cuomo, we have purchased 30,000 new laptops and tablets for students who need one to fully participate in distance learning. If you are a student in need of a device, please request one through your school by referring to the links provided here.
- Because of the disruption caused by the transition to distance learning education, students will have the option to convert any or all of the letter grades they earn in their spring 2020 classes to Credit/No Credit grading. Read more here.
- Dormitory Fees will be credited to continuing students –and refunded to students set to graduate– on a prorated basis from the student’s move-out date. Read more here.
- The University will waive 25% of the Spring 2020 Student Activity Fee for students enrolled in CUNY colleges on a 15-week calendar and 50% of the fee for students enrolled on a 12-week or six-week calendar. Read more here.
