CCNY Will Feel Washington’s Latest Cuts

Politicians constantly speak of editing the budgets and limiting spending. This week their latest cuts could directly effect CCNY, and of course You.

These cuts, also known as the Sequester, are coming from the federal government and set to take effect tomorrow March 1. Tuitions and pell grants will remain untouched, but other federal aid programs will likely be cut.

The Rotunda Transforms into La Republica!

El 27 de Febrero, also known as Dominican Independence Day was yesterday, and in honor of their nation’s victory the Dominican Student Association (DSA) will host a festival today in the NAC Rotunda beginning at 12pm.

You can expect to play games that Dominicans on the island usually play, hear the tunes native to the island, and watch performances  by D’Culture-(a high school dance group) Groupo Batey as The Diablo Cojuelos.

Food and refreshments will be available, so expect to smell some platanos!
