The Kiosk is the independent, student-run newspaper for the CUNY School of Professional Studies. The Kiosk bridges the distance-learner gap, by serving as a virtual student lounge where news, ideas, profiles and experiences are shared.

Founded in 2018, The Kiosk humanizes the somewhat impersonal world of online learning by bringing dynamic, robust content and stories of interest to students, alumni, and the administration.

The content providers of The Kiosk serve as the information ambassadors of CUNY SPS, by discovering and sharing the opportunities available to current and future students.

The Kiosk is always on the lookout for content creators! If you are a writer, photographer, videographer, podcaster, graphic designer, or any other type of creative and you are interested in contributing to The Kiosk, please contact Milan Fredricks at kiosk@sps.cuny.edu.
