Opinion: Email to Baruch College about being put on probation for one semester.



Thank you for the information. As per our discussion, I’m not going to submit any more student grievances under any circumstances.

I’m not contacting public safety under any circumstances. The only time I will interact with public safety is to say hi or thank you as I’m walking on and off-campus. I am always very polite to the public safety officers. They are very nice.

There is nothing that can happen at Baruch College that would ever make me submit another student grievance or contact public safety again after receiving a probation letter.

I’m going to continue to keep to myself in regards to students. I will continue to treat all staff, professors, students, etc. with the utmost respect at all times anytime I interact with anyone.

If someone pours a can of paint over my head, I will say thank you and then go wash it off. I’m not kidding. I love Baruch College, I want to stay.

I look forward to another successful semester at Baruch College.

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t do anything illegal. I’ve stayed out of trouble for 45 years, even with being street homeless for the last five years.

I’m glad to follow the rules at Baruch College and CUNY.

Just to clarify this letter of probation is for submitting two student grievances:

A student tried to purposely crash into me in clear view of a security camera at Baruch College.

I suggested that more security cameras at Baruch College might make the school safer for students. I also suggested students have access to their attendance record in CUNY First.

I have the utmost respect for you and everyone at CUNY, although I don’t necessarily agree that I deserve to be on probation and I look forward to next semester when I’m off probation. I will be very cautious about how I proceed moving forward at Baruch College.

I assume there is nothing I can do to appeal this decision?

I am literally now walking on eggshells at Baruch College. I earned a 3.975 GPA at LaGuardia Community College. I have a 4.0 GPA at Baruch College. Now I’m one misstep away from being thrown out of school.

I’m going to continue to steer clear of interacting with students because that is where the majority of complaints come from at colleges. That is unless I’m working for RF CUNY.

I’m not sure how being on probation might affect my eligibility to work for RF CUNY, so I might not have to worry about that until next semester. I’ll lose money although it’s a small price to pay. The most important thing is to get back on track and off probation.

I will continue to treat all my professors and the staff with the utmost professionalism and respect. The staff at CUNY are doing a fantastic job of providing the absolute best opportunity for students. The City University of New York is a New York City treasure.

I’m hoping to start generating money and get off welfare before I graduate.

If anyone looks at the emails I have sent to professors (I give all CUNY staff permission to look into my Baruch College email account) since I started at CUNY years ago, I go above and beyond to be courteous at all times. I take the high road in all situations.

I am going to use the opportunity provided by Baruch College to elevate my standing in life.

Thank you again.

I’m back to my studies. Today is non-stop Grammar lessons.

Have a great day.

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
