Email to Baruch College about interacting with students.

Greetings Professor,

First and foremost, I treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. That includes professors, staff, security guards, and students. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. 

I understand that everyone is doing their best and CUNY is a great school. 

Everything you’re saying makes perfect sense. I respect and understand your position. 

I believe that my point of view is compelling as well. 

1. This is my situation. There are some students, including me, that are not allowed to choose their classes at the same time as other students. The students in my category have to wait 3 days after other students choose the classes they want. 

By the time I’m allowed to choose the classes I want, a lot of them are already filled up. Therefore I am very limited with the classes that are available now. 

2. I have had several students at Baruch College and LaGuardia Community College single me out, insult me, and yell at me for reasons that I don’t know. 

I never partake in controversial conversations at school. I also have no idea who any of the students are. 

I did not respond. I reported the students to security and they told me the video cameras were broken. I was also told not to contact security again. 

3. I am in the process of speaking with City Council offices and other city/government agencies to try and be excused from having to get into groups with students. 

The process is going to take time. It’s not going to happen by this semester. 

4. There are thousands of complaints from students against students and students against professors and staff in New York every year including several at CUNY. 

In addition to many people who are banned from CUNY, I think there are some facing criminal charges. 

I can’t even believe the number of complaints is as high as it is but it’s true. 

There have even been professors and staff from CUNY quoted in the mainstream press about the alarmingly high number of complaints from students against students and students against professors and staff. 

There have been mainstream media coverage of issues between students at Baruch College that I’m not going to name here out of respect for the victims. 

Just to let you know a little bit about me. If someone poured a can of paint on my head at Baruch College or CUNY I would not say a word. 

I love Baruch College. It’s the best opportunity ever. Baruch College has opened doors for me. 

As I mentioned in a previous email I have been living in the street homeless for 5 years. I don’t like the shelters. I hope with the inspiration provided by Baruch College that I have a roof over my head one day soon. 

So far at LaGuardia Community College, I had a 3.975 GPA with 36 credits. Clearly, I was not disruptive, I was a model student. 

At Baruch College last semester I earned a 4.0 GPA with 12 credits. I believe my professors would say I was a positive contribution to my classes. With that being said I did not interact with any students. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t do anything illegal. I don’t have a criminal record. I have places to shower and keep clean clothes. 

I’ll be respectful to everyone as I always am. If you have to give me an F for keeping to myself I understand. I don’t take it personally. 

On Rate My Professors all the students say you’re as good as it gets. That’s why I’m excited to take your class, even if it earns me an F and it’s the last class I take because I failed out of Baruch College. 

I’d prefer to fail out of school because of a grade than having a student make up lies about me for unknown reasons. 

One time at LaGuardia Community College I was in a classroom with a security camera. A student stands up in the middle of class and starts yelling at me. 

I have no idea who the person is. I picked up my things and moved to the other side of the room. If I had any interaction with the student in a student group or any conversation the student could have made up any lie they want about me and it would be their word against a 45-year-old homeless person. 

Another time at Baruch College a student started insulting me during a Zoom class. I ignored the person.

I didn’t even have a laptop when I started at LaGuardia Community College, I was living in the street, and I earned all As. 

If a student asks me a question in your class I will respectfully say I don’t know and go back to minding my business. 

I’m confident there are a lot of CUNY parents that would not want their children breaking into groups with 45-year-old homeless people who live in the street. 

I mostly sleep on subway platforms. I’m going to avoid sleeping anywhere near Baruch College so no one from there sees me. Sometimes I sleep on the steps at the 77 St subway and places like that. Not 68 St because that’s Hunter College 🙂

I promise I have never, nor will I ever be disruptive. If you have to fail me I respect your decision. 

I did interact with students when I was working at the LaGuardia Community College library. I never had any issues. There were security cameras and I was helping students print their essays. 

This is a tiny fraction of the articles about this topic. There is a CUNY Professor quoted in the first article. I would contact him and thank him but they told me I’m not allowed so I’m not. 

Let’s say I’m talking with a student in class. A few weeks later I run into the student in the subway or the student sees me sleeping on the floor in the subway or something like that. Let’s say the student says I think that homeless guy from my class is following me. 

What’s going to happen to me? 

Who is going to stand up for me? 

CUNY is spending millions of dollars for lawyers right now to defend teachers and staff from student accusations. It’s public information. 

Anyone can say what they want about me. I’m respectful but I’m not interacting with students unless it’s to respectfully say I don’t know or I’m working for RF CUNY the HRA job program at Baruch Collge. 

One thing about me is I am never disruptive and I’m never disrespectful. 

I like people. I’m a people person. I’m just not socializing with students at Baruch College when there are thousands of complaints from students against students and students against professors and staff every year at New York colleges. 

In regards to participating in class, I love to participate in class, with the teacher. 

I used to provide web marketing services to companies for about $1,000 per month for each customer. 

I came across people all the time who needed my help but didn’t have the money. I helped dozens of people without charging them. 

My goal in life is to be happy, successful, and have a positive impact on my community. I’m not going to get from homeless to that position by partaking in risky behavior. 

It’s clear that at New York colleges, everyone needs to move cautiously because there are thousands of people connected with New York Colleges, that have to fend off complaints every year. 

Baruch College is all I have so I have to protect it. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine

I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. 

That includes staff, professors, security guards, and students. 

Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. 

I love Baruch College and The City University of New York. 

It’s the best opportunity ever. 

Email to the New York City Comptroller’s Office about my Baruch College lawsuit.

I love Baruch College. The staff and professors are amazing. There is no animosity attached to this lawsuit. There are a few issues at school that I would like to have addressed by the courts.

One issue I’m having at Baruch College is that I want to be excused from having to interact with students at Baruch College. I have had several students at Baruch College and LaGuardia Community College try to pick fights with me for no reason. I ignored them all. Due to that fact, I don’t want to interact with students in my classes. If I avoid students, no one can lie and complain about my behavior. I always treat staff, professors, and students at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times.

People I know are paying the New York City police (NYPD) to get me kicked out of Baruch College. The NYPD is spending millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money out of their multi-billion dollar budget to get me kicked out of Baruch College.

The NYPD has members of their civilian team try to pick fights with me in stores and in the street anytime I’m near Baruch College.

The NYPD has audio of the police and me arguing when they were attacking, teasing, and harassing me. The NYPD is planning on editing the audio into conversations and saying my words were directed at multilple people at Baruch College.

There are a few additional issues that I will save for later.

I had a hearing that was set up by the New York City Comptroller’s Office. I approved the transcript from the hearing. Now I’m moving forward with my Baruch College lawsuit.

I’m not an attorney. If you require legal advice contact a lawywer.

Greetings New York City Comptrollers Office,

Thank you for your assistance with everything. 

I would like to move forward with my lawsuit against Baruch College in New York State Supreme Civil Court. 

I approved the transcript from the hearing months ago. I suspect the follow-up letter from the NYC Comptroller’s Office was lost in the mail. 

I went to the NYC Comptrollers Office today at 1 Centre St 5th floor New York, NY 10007. It says to call a phone number. I left a few messages on that number for a few months and haven’t heard anything back. 

I understand it’s a big city and everyone is busy. I’ll continue to follow up if I don’t hear back. 

In the meantime, I’m going to try and move forward with my Baruch College lawsuit. If the court asks for the information from the New York City Comptroller’s Office I’ll show them these emails and a copy of the transcript. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine




Message to Baruch College about yet another student trying to pick a fight with me.

Greetings Baruch College,

A student wrote something negative about me in a class chat.

I have no idea who the student is. 

I don’t know the student’s name. 

I quickly glanced at it.

I ignored it as always. I can care less if a student pours a can of paint on my head, I’m not going to react. I can care less if a student walks up to me in school and does anything to me I’m not going to react. 

This is why I’m respectfully suing Baruch College to try and be excused from having to interact with students. I love Baruch College, there is no animosity attached to the lawsuit. 

There is no other way to be excused from having to interact with students besides the courts. I’m not mentioning the lawsuit to any of my professors. 

It’s not fair to have to keep taking abuse from students without at least trying to protect my privacy. 

The only exception is if I go back to work for RF CUNY in the library. Hopefully, there are security cameras in the library. The RF CUNY money is too good to turn down, plus it’s mandatory from HRA. 

I keep having students, since LaGuardia Community College, that I have no idea who they are, that I never said one word to, trying to pick fights with me. I ignore them all. 

People I know pay the NYPD and their civilian team to physically attack me, sabotage me, ambush me, steal and destroy my property regularly including yesterday. I don’t react to the NYPD and their vicious civilian team. I’m certainly not reacting to anyone at Baruch College trying to pick a fight with me.

Again, I’m not taking a screen picture of the person talking about me in the class chat because I don’t want any record of the person’s name.  I can care less. The worst thing I can do to people trying to pick fights with me is to ignore them. 

You told me to deal with you and you only about these types of situations. 

There has never been one person name someone else in the chat in any of my zoom classes to try and start an argument besides this one person, that I have no clue who it is, against me. 

The professor asked for our opinions about a topic. I gave a completely noncontroversial answer like always. The next person starts writing that I’m wrong and mentioning me by name in the chat which is totally inappropriate. They could just give their opinion, they didn’t have to mention me. 

I don’t want to jinx it but I’m doing amazing this semester. I don’t care if I get all C’s but with a little luck I might end up on the Dean’s List. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
