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.

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.
