Baruch College Mourns Death of Former Longtime Staffer Nicholas Yang

Nicholas Yang, a long-serving member of the Baruch College community, passed away in June at the age of 66. Yang worked for nearly 30 years in the Bursar, Controllers, and Buildings & Grounds departments and most recently, the Campus Operations department, before his retirement. On behalf of the entire Baruch College Community, we send our deepest condolences to his loved ones.
