Opinion: Email to Baruch College about not being able to have consistent access to the Wi-Fi for years. September 25, 2023.


Greetings Baruch College, 

My current GPA is about 3.8.

This semester’s GPA will probably be about 2.5 to 3.0.

The total GPA should stay above 3.0 because I’m close to graduation.

First and foremost, I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times.

Treating people respectfully at Baruch College is the most important thing at Baruch College.

Regardless of how anyone at Baruch College treats me, I treat everyone respectfully.

For the past four years, I’ve been unable to use the Baruch College/CUNY Wi-Fi consistently.

I’m creating several videos to show what’s going on.

I was just in the Baruch College library on the 4th floor.

It was September 25, 2023, at about 11 am.

There was only one other Baruch College student on the floor when my laptop was blocked from using the Baruch College Wi-Fi again.

There were a few people who work at the library walking around, plus one Baruch College student on the floor, and that was it.

I’m connected to the Baruch College Wi-Fi; it’s just not working.

The Baruch College Help Desk is great.

I don’t think this has anything to do with them.

I’m connected to the Baruch College Wi-Fi with several laptops.

None of them work on the Baruch College Wi-Fi, including the laptops loaned to me by Baruch College.

I have about 3 or 4 laptops I bought with student loans, plus I have access to laptops from the Baruch College library.

None of the above-mentioned laptops work properly when I use the Baruch College Wi-Fi.

If it wasn’t for a hotspot from a phone company, I would have failed out of CUNY due to lack of access to the Wi-Fi.

I’m allowed partial access to the Baruch College Wi-Fi.

Not enough to graduate.

In my opinion, a student can’t graduate from college in 2023 without consistent access to the college’s Wi-Fi.

If you’re too busy to respond, its no big deal.

I understand everyone is busy.

I’m making the best of the situation as always.

I have Wi-Fi from my mobile phone company to get me through.

Again, the most important thing for me is to follow the Baruch College/CUNY rules and protocol, plus treat all Baruch College staff, professors, and students with the utmost respect at all times.

Thank you and have a great day.
