CUNY, City College

The design of the three-faced college seal has its roots in the 19th century. It is inspired by the views of a Roman god Janus whose face connects the past and the future. Hence this vision was broadened into three faces to show the students stages from childhood through youth into maturity.

            1968-1972, B.S.

            Going to C.C.N.Y. opened a whole world that I couldn't imagine. The country today should use this as a foundation to welcome the 'huddled masses yearning to breathe free".

          • Testimony
            1960-1991, B.A.

            When I attended CCNY, it not only had a sterling reputation, not that my presence helped much, but it was also tuition free!A combination of social promotion and political correctness did CCNY in. I believe CCNY has now recovered most of its reputation, now we only need to resume free tuition.

          • Testimony
            1960-1965, BA

            I took a B.A, program where I was able to study diverse subjects from Shakespeare to Logic to Russian Lit. to Sociology. Truly a gift, appreciated more, as I grew older.
