The Starr Career Development Center is requesting help from faculty and staff in providing business attire for Baruch students. It is imperative that students have appropriate business attire as they attend Career Days, interview for internships and full time positions, and interact with potential employers during events.

All sizes of clean, women’s and men’s suits in black, navy blue, gray, brown, beige, pinstripes, or plaid will be accepted. No worn out or double-breasted suits.

Those interested in donating can bring their suits to the Starr Career Development Center where they will receive a letter for a tax deduction. For more information, please contact Patricia Imbimbo.

Campus Construction Notice

Preventive maintenance is required on the façade of the Information and Technology Building, 151 East 25th Street. A protective platform has been erected over the 25th Street sidewalk. The construction work was delayed in schedule due to the unusual amount of rain experienced over the summer. The required work is anticipated to be completed before the end of October at which time the platform will be removed. Should you need any additional info, please email or call Lisa Edwards at 646-660-6042.
