About The Hunter Gatherer

The Hunter Gatherer publishes news about upcoming programs and activities sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, and other matters that have special interest and relevance to a broad community of Hunter students, such as important administrative announcements and college-wide or CUNY-wide events.

Please note: We are not able to answer questions about our contributors' announcements. For information about a specific announcement, please contact the department that posted the item directly.


  • We publish your announcement on The Hunter-Gatherer web site (these pages).
  • At the same time, we distribute an e-newsletter via email to the entire Hunter community
  • The e-newsletter includes your headline (and, when space allows, a brief abstract) with a link to your announcement on this site.
  • All current students, faculty and staff receive The Hunter Gatherer e-newsletter, without exception.
  • We publish every two weeks during the academic year.
  • We publish approximately every three weeks during the summer and winter breaks.
  • We do not publish during spring recess or Thanksgiving week.
