Advice to Baruch College

Using New Media tools efficiently not only will provide more information to current Baruch College students but also to potential students to want to enroll at the college.

I think one way to improve the college will be by podcasting. Potential new students of the college may want to know more about college life and how competitive it is to go to Baruch. It will be helpful if students of the college themselves will podcast the stages taken to be successful in each major offered by Baruch. These podcasts can be posted and downloaded on a Baruch College (students' representation) website or blog and even in Facebook.

The Baruch New Media Wiki is one good way that Baruch College Students may use as references to a research project or paper. It will be a good idea if not only New Media students are able to access the wiki but students of Baruch in general. Since Baruch is one of the most diverse college in the United States, the wiki can be an opportunity for students to make wiki pages on their own languages/dialects. In other words, making the wiki multilingual will add significance to the college labeled as one of the most diverse colleges in the United States.

  1. multilingual wiki is a great advice. don't know the actual numbers, but there's a significant amount of students who's first language is not english. this will certainly make things more clearer for them.
