Letter from the Editor: March 2021

Just when you thought 60-degree days and increased vaccine distribution couldn’t be topped, the March Issue of The Oppy is out now!

In this edition, we are excited to present our inaugural SternSounds playlist – a genius idea by AVP of Technology, Phuong Tran. Every month, we will crowdsource Sternies’ favorite songs into a Spotify playlist. Contribute to next month’s playlist here. You guys sure have some eclectic taste.
Now, back to the “news.” Langone Managing Editor, David Kalan, writes about why the American Rescue Plan, the largest federal aid package since the Great Depression, is bold, progressive, and transformative. …

Letter from the Editor: February 2021


We know you’ve been going through withdrawal without your favorite newspaper giving you nonsensical articles. But much like those five pounds of Covid/holiday weight, we are not going anywhere.

In the first issue of 2021, we have a healthcare professional’s research on the Covid vaccine and its distribution process (spoiler alert: the healthcare professional is me), a clever (and benevolent) way to secure a vaccine in NYC, and two more great Covid Journals: our very own MBA2, Lauren Marinaro and an exchange student from Tel Aviv, Moshe Hildesheimer. We review Professor Scott Galloway’s book, Post Corona: From Crisis to Opportunity.…

Letter from the Editor: December 2020

The Oppy Editorial Board is proud to introduce its newly-formatted newsletter with this issue (Thanks to Phuong Tran, our AVP of Technology!). Less text-heavy emails and more pictures makes the email easier to skim before deleting. 🙂 

We are only days away from finals being over and, therefore, the end of the semester. Why not enjoy these articles during study breaks? 

SGov tells us about the socially-distanced events they hosted this semester. Ben Sellitto, a Langone student, shares a pretty impressive model he created to help in course selection. Owen Lee, our B-School beekeeper, shares how he got into his unusual hobby.…

Letter from the Editor: November 2020

This is becoming monotonous, wouldn’t you agree? “Another month of virtual learning, Stern is resilient, and we will continue to succeed!” Blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I’m over it, too.

Yet, here we are. There’s no other choice, and I must say we are doing the best we can. I’ve been trying to be more intentional and have been attending all the virtual and outdoor events I can. A Biergarten you say? In November? Ok, I’ve got my turtleneck, sweater, fleece, and down coat on. Let’s go. I may lose sensation in my fingers, despite the mittens, but the company is great and that’s what I’m here for.…

Letter from the Editor: October 2020

One month of classes down, either virtually or socially distanced in KMC. While this year only continues to get weirder, Sternies are adjusting. Whether it’s navigating hybrid classes, virtual recruitment, or cold-temperature tolerance for outdoor dining, we have proved to be a resilient bunch.

In this issue, we bring you some light-hearted reviews of virtual races, the NBA finals, and dating apps. We dive into some significant topics, such as the upcoming election, its effects on the market, and adjustment disorder. We had the pleasure of interviewing the CEO and EiC of Poets & Quants, John Byrne, about how his graduate school paper impacted him and how he ended up being a key figure in the B-school space.…
