In this issue of the BMCC student newspaper, Voice of the Voiceless, the topic of Open Admissions is given full focus with more than twenty articles contributed on the subject from students across the CUNY system. The topic was given special consideration in this April 20, 1998 edition of the paper as CUNY’s Board of Trustees was scheduled to decide on the future of Open Admissions in a vote on April 27th. In January, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani had issued an indictment of the system's effectiveness in his State of the City Address, calling open enrollment "a mistake [that] should be changed." Many of the students' submissions in this paper are directed at Giuliani's criticisms.
Additional articles found in this paper also cover the “freshman admissions requirements” across CUNY’s senior colleges, as well as a breakdown of the use of “student activity fees” at BMCC.
