The Kiosk is the independent, student-run newspaper for the CUNY School of Professional Studies. Our mission is to bridge the distance-learning gap by creating a virtual lounge for all aspects of student life at CUNY SPS. At The Kiosk, students can learn about CUNY SPS clubs, events, creative projects of fellow students, and much more!


The Kiosk was first founded in 2018 by student journalists Lisa Sheridan and Milan Fredericks and is managed by the Office of Student Life at CUNY SPS.
