No Antiques: CUNY Information Fair Road Show Continues



he City University's concerted efforts to reach out to prospective students around the city continued during the winter with two CUNY Information Fairs. The first, on Saturday, February 24, took place at Ft. Hamilton High School in Brooklyn and was sponsored by State Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, who is seen here encouraging the inquiries of one Fair visitor.

Underscoring the importance of this initiative, Chancellor Matthew Goldstein and four college presidents--Christoph Kimmich (Brooklyn), Edison Jackson (Medgar Evers), Fred Beaufait (New York City Tech), and Byron McClenney (Kingsborough)--were on hand to speak and greet Fair-goers. The second Fair, in the Bronx at Co-op City's Lerner Auditorium on March 3, was co-sponsored by the Board of Directors of the Riverbay Corporation, which oversees Co-op City. Chancellor Goldstein, University Student Senate Chairperson Michael Anglin, and Presidents Ricardo Fernandez (Lehman), Dolores Fernandez (Hostos), and President Carolyn Williams (BCC) addressed the audience. Notable on this occasion was the participation of many faculty members eager to encourage coursework in their disciplines.
