This year, The Ticker aiming to set up more tabling events than in recent years. Already, we have had an exceptionally popular table during this year’s Convocation Day. Through these events, we have been able to recruit more copy editors, photographers and writers than ever before.
We at The Ticker are also happy to have recently renovated our website, making our articles accessible to Baruch students no matter where they might be. In the near future, we are looking to expand our website to be even more fun and interactive for students, by way of weekly podcasts, full-color PDFs of Ticker issues, polls, multimedia content and more.

As for The Ticker’s social media arm, we are quickly expanding our Facebook and Instagram accounts in order to bring our readers all sorts of creative content. Keep an eye on our Facebook in the coming weeks, as we aim to debut regular giveaways of Ticker merchandise to our readers.
