Five Student Sites on OpenCUNY (Spring 2017 Edition)

–Post originally created by Margaret Galavan for

In this roudup of interesting sites on OpenCUNY we draw attention to discounts you can get from being a GC student, two students who are showing what you can do with a professional site and even draw attention to a GC program that’s going above and beyond their official GC site.

The Advocate is the student-run, DSC-sponsored newspaper for the Graduate Center. It publishes a print copy about three times a semester and accepts articles from students and community members. They regularly update their site with the most hard-hitting articles from upcoming issues but also make the hard-copy issues available in PDF.

Edwin Mayorga is a CUNY alum, a  “parent, educator, scholar-activist” and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Studies and the Program in Latin American and Latino Studies at Swarthmore College (PA). His website is a dynamic example of a professional website that is more than a simple CV.

The Critical Social/Personality Phychology program has its home page on OpenCUNY. A program here at the GC, their OpenCUNY site shows what a program can do when it doesn’t have to follow the strict rules of main GC website. With incoming class photos, faculty profiles and and more, it’s a glimpse into so much of the work that happens here at the GC.

Lindsey Albracht is a student in the English Program here at the GC and her site is another example of a professional site that’s more than just a CV. With posts about current events, teaching and even her orals lists and dissertation, her site is a model for how you can use OpenCUNY to bridge your academic and personal interests.

This one isn’t really a site, but it’s a page. The home of the DSC’s Student Life and Services Committe, this page highlights discounts GC students can take advantage of. Who doesn’t like discounts?
