The Brooklyn Navigators were invited to a sleepover at our Residence Halls of Brooklyn College.

The Navigators started with a well-informed tour of the halls, then spent the night and got the royal treatment from the marvelous staff! The night was filled with team bonding, completed with a complimentary dinner, fun crafts and games, and topped the night off with a viewing of Mean Girls.

We highly recommend that those who are interested in Housing options to visit our Residence Halls located at 1 Kenilworth Place and have a tour for yourself. You won’t regret it!

Dean’s Honor Lists 
There are two Dean’s Honor Lists: one for full-time students and one for part-time students. Eligibility criteria for both are as follows: A student must achieve a 3.50 GPA excluding courses assigned a grade of P, credits granted for life experience, and summer session courses; cannot have grades of F, FIN, NC, WF or WU, or grades with # or * in front of them; cannot have a grade of INC unless these grades are resolved in the semester immediately following and the student becomes eligible, in which case the student will be named to the list retroactively; and must be a matriculated student seeking a Brooklyn College degree (nondegree, CUNY B.A. and post-baccalaureate students are not eligible). Students cease being eligible after the semester in which 135 credits have been completed. Additional criteria for each list are as follows: Full-time students who are eligible for the Dean’s Honor List must have achieved at least 12 completed credits (excluding courses taken for a grade of pass or fail) in the semester for which they are being considered. Students who are eligible for the Dean’s Honor List, Part-time, will have been part-time students for a full academic year beginning with the fall semester — i.e., registered for less than 12 total credits (excluding courses taken for a grade of pass or fail) in each of the two consecutive semesters. Students must have achieved a total of at least 15 credits (excluding courses taken for a grade of pass or fail) over the two consecutive semesters. 
Honors awarded at graduation. At graduation there are two honors designations: honors for general excellence and honors for excellence in advanced study centered in a department. 
Honors for general excellence. A degree summa cum laude is granted for a GPA of at least 3.90. A degree magna cum laude is granted for a GPA of 3.75 or higher, but less than 3.90. A degree cum laude is granted for a GPA of 3.50 or higher, but less than 3.75. For transfer students, the GPA for honors is computed on the basis of the complete college record, including all transfer credits, as well as separately on the basis of grades earned in courses taken at Brooklyn College. The required GPA for graduation with honors for general excellence must be achieved in both cases. 
Honors for excellence in the major. A degree with honors for excellence in the major is granted for a GPA of at least 3.50 in all advanced work in the major and for satisfactory completion of at least 3 credits in honors work at an advanced-course level or its equivalent as determined by the individual department or program. Brooklyn College encourages students to begin making plans to graduate with departmental honors late in their sophomore year or early in their junior year. Students should begin making these plans by talking with a faculty member in their major department, with the department chairperson or with the department’s honors committee chairperson. Some departments publish an honors brochure explaining requirements for graduating with honors. Departmental honors courses, usually numbered 5000 through 5999, are open primarily to juniors and seniors. Qualified upper sophomores may be admitted with the written permission of the department chairperson.

Shakespeare in the Park

Each year as one of NYC’s summer traditions, the Public Theater produces free Shakespeare plays at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.  In the last 50 years, more than 5 million people have enjoyed the shows.  

This summer, “The Comedy of Errors” is being performed until June 30th.  It is a comical tale about two sets of twins who were separated at birth and now live in neighboring cities. When the twins are mistaken for each other it begins the never ending mayhem of mistaken identity.

 ”Love’s Labour’s Lost” will be performed from July 23 through August 18th. The new musical adaption of Shakespeare’s comedy is about a King and his 3 friends who take an oath to dedicate themselves to scholarship and swear off women.  The oath becomes difficult to keep when they come across 4 clever girls from their past.

All performances begin at 8:30pm.

For more info and to get your free tickets, visit shakespeareinthepark.org.

Another amazing and free event in NYC to take advantage of this summer.

Anonymous asked: What is the minimum ACT score needed to get in?

We’re looking for a score of 20 or higher in the reading and writing section, and a score of 21 in the math section. Here’s the list from CUNY for admission requirements for four-year colleges

Anonymous asked: Can you apply for Macaulay Honors after you've started Brooklyn College? Like, can you transfer into the Honors College sophomore year?

Unfortunately you can only apply to Macaulay as a freshman. However, you may be able to apply to the BC Scholars program as a sophomore or transfer student.

Anonymous asked: Hi I've received a C+ in my pschology class and it has lowered my GPA. Will retaking the course and receiving a higher grade remove the C+ from my transcript and increase my GPA? because I am really beating myself up about it. The class was very hard with no review at all, I don't feel that it was a fair introductory course.

If a C+ is considered passing for that class, unfortunately you cannot retake the class for credit, and if you did the new grade would not be calculated into your GPA. I’d suggest you just concentrate on making sure you succeed in all of your upcoming courses. One C+ over four years won’t have that much of an impact on your overall GPA. 

If you feel that you’re struggling in a class, you can check out the Learning Center and hopefully get some help in any class that you’re struggling with. Best of luck!

Anonymous asked: I'm going to be applying to BC during my senior year and was wondering if theres any point in applying to Macaulay Honors program if I have a 1000 combined score on my SAT's? I have a lot of extracurriculars as well if that would help me.

The average SAT score for the Macaulay Honors College is 1200 to 1600, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to apply. If you’re not accepted into MHC, you will still be considered for regular admission.
