By Mashido Eghaghe
In the past decade, the MTA has increased the transportation fare from $1.00 to $2.25
and have canceled one day fun passes, unlimited weekly and monthly metro cards.

Welcome Back Party Failure
By Marlene Gomez
With Glow sticks being handed out, it's easy to assume it must have been one heck
of a welcoming party.
However, the lack of dancing and energy proved it to be anything but. Students attended

LGBT Issues on Campus
By Maria Panskaya
Kingsborough faculty and staff held a meeting under the leadership of Steven Amarnick,
associate professor in the English Department, where they discussed various Lesbian
Gay Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) issues and incidents on campus.
