For two years, students, alumni and community members have been organizing to raise public awareness about Cooper Union, a historically tuition-free institution that is currently at risk of beginning tuition-based programs. A Day of Action will take place outside the Cooper Union and will include garderie boisbriand performances, speak outs, and free classes to continue bringing attention to the growing crisis of student debt and rising tuition costs nationwide.
