computer room, the campus network and all local Baruch College systems
will be unavailable on Friday, June 26. That day is the first summer
Friday on which the campus is closed, which will reduce the impact of
the down time. On that day there will be no access to faculty/staff
e-mail, Baruch College web pages, Degreeworks from on site or off site.
Anyone who is on campus that day will not have access to any computing
services. However, from off campus there will be access to systems that
are hosted outside our campus such as Blackboard, eSIMS, BOSS, and
student e-mail. If you need to know the scheduled availability of any
system on June 26, please contact the help desk (x1010) in advance.

Night Sky is a new play is about a brilliant astronomer, Anna, who is struck by a car and loses her ability to speak.

Vampire Lesbians of Sodom

As one of the longest running plays in off-Broadway history, The Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, written by Charles Busch, is a fantastic send-up of vampiric tales and actresses' vanity. The story begins in Sodom, transports us to 1920’s Hollywood, and drops us on a modern stage. The rivalry begins in Sodom where a guard is lamenting his social life and a succubus is awaiting a sacrificial virgin. The virgin is turned into a succubus and a 2000 year battle of feminine wiles, toothy marks, and blackmail ensues. It is a hilarious love-hate relationship that sustains them both. For tickets, please visit or call the box office in the NVC lobby at 646.312.4085. $10 tickets for Baruch I.D. holders. More info
