Opinion: Letter to Baruch College about respecting the opportunity.


Greetings Baruch College,

I completely understand you have a large school to run with many students. 

I’m patiently waiting for the instructions regarding the probation appeal.

I’m never submitting another student grievance under any circumstances. 

Being a student at Baruch College has many benefits. 

I just paid my T Mobile phone bill, the best plan with mobile hotspot, for more than a year in advance. That is a huge benefit for a homeless person. That’s great for my studies, my lifeline, etc.

I just paid for MTA tickets I’ve accumulated over the years, so I don’t get arrested in the subway this winter. I could have run into issues with the transit police if I didn’t take care of the MTA tickets. The transit police are always very nice, but rules are rules. 

I was able to buy a new laptop for school today. I was using a Google Chromebook. Now I realize that a Windows computer is necessary for my classes. I picked one up on Amazon for a great deal. 

I can list dozens or hundreds of additional reasons here. 

Last but not least, I’m becoming a 10X better writer thanks to my professors. By next semester, I believe my future professors will see the dedication and commitment I’ve made to improve my writing because it’s such a crucial part of the college experience. 

I used to think college was unnecessary when I was younger. I realize now that college prepares me for the real world because I did everything in reverse order. 

With the platform provided by Baruch College, I will have a roof over my head one day. The sooner the better 🙂 

All my assignments are being turned in on time or early except for one small homework that I couldn’t complete without my windows computer. I let my professor know the situation and he is very understanding. 

I earned two A- on the other assignments. The one I’m late for will be submitted in a few days. In the meantime I’m studying with the laptop I have.  

I appreciate the consideration that you have provided for me as one of the thousands of students. I look forward to hearing your instructions when you are available. 

Have a great weekend. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
