Opinion: Email to Baruch College about using my school email for a side project.


Greetings Baruch College,

Everything is going great at school. 

I love school. 

I’m 95% done with all my schoolwork for the semester. 

My number one goal in life is to earn money so I can get an apartment. 

In my spare time I’m trying to earn money. 

Just in case I don’t earn any money, I’m staying on top of all my schoolwork. 

In regards to school, I would like to attend any CUNY graduate school.

If I don’t get accepted into any CUNY graduate school it’s no big deal. It was fun while it lasted. I’m lucky to have gotten this far. 

I’m not going to be graduating from Baruch College for another year or so. 

If possible I will try to attend the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY. 

I have a plan and I just wanted to mention it to you upfront. 

I plan on creating a little blog and video channel to present to the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.

I doubt the blog and video channel will ever earn any money because there is so much competition and I will need so many views that it’s doubtful I’ll reach that level. 

The reason I’m mentioning this to you is because I plan on contacting people for interviews from my Baruch College email and this isn’t a Baruch College assignment. 

This is something extra to use to try and get into the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY. 

Any email I send, anytime I interact with anyone, anything I post on the web I will make sure is respectful and professional. 

I don’t want to contact people from a generic email. 

If I contact people as a Baruch College journalism student I will get better results because many people in New York City respect CUNY including me. 

I have all the respect in the world for the Baruch College student news websites, although I want to interview people on video and post it to the web about the topics I want to cover. 

For example, topics about New York City, careers, etc.

Also by some miracle if I can earn or raise money from the project, I want to own it. 

Please advise if it’s OK for me to use my Baruch College email for the project. 

If I don’t hear from you I’ll assume it’s OK. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Mark Pine
