Hello World!

Welcome to the official blog for Lexicon, the yearbook of Baruch College. For years Lexicon has captured the many faces and life stories of students at Baruch. We proudly continue the tradition of commemorating the journeys – intellectual, spiritual, physical – on which each member of the Baruch community embarks every year. The focus for the 2011 edition capitalizes on our changing times. We hope to refashion this edition and truly embody the puzzle comprised of events and individuals throughout the college at every stage of the journey. As such, the yearbook serves as a memento for all students – not only the graduating class. If you would like to order a 2011 edition of Lexicon, click here.
