We’d like to take the time to encourage you to join the CUNY Commons (the site that is hosting this blog.) As soon as you have registered for classes in August, you will be assigned an @gc.cuny.edu email address which will allow you to join the Commons and either become a contributor to an existing blog or group or begin your own blog or student group.
Interested in why you should blog? Take a look at From Tweet to Blog Post to Peer-Reviewed Article: How to be a Scholar Now by GC’s own Jessie Daniels or take a look at The Virtues of Blogging as a Scholarly Activity at The Chronicle.
Some active blogs on the Commons (that you can read now even though you aren’t yet a Commons member) are:
