Letter from the Editor: September 2020

Welcome back!

Whether you are back on campus or bracing yourself for another semester on Zoom, we hope you are well and are looking forward to whatever this semester brings. The Oppy is going to continue to connect us this academic year by reporting on Stern events, current affairs, relevant topics, and delivering more of our regular features – Stern Singles, Stern Somebody, The Graduate, and Dear Oppy. In addition, we are happy to announce a new feature we’re calling Allyship, which will serve as a forum to continue our discussions on social justice and racial reckoning. 

While there is some much uncertainty in 2020, we want to highlight the strength of our Stern community and continue to develop our relationships and network.…

From the Editor: May 2020

Has it been a month already? Honestly, I cannot decide if April was the longest or shortest 30 days of my life. I do know time has started to blend together. I only differentiate days of the week by which hospital I’m working in, do I have class or not, and how many days of scrubs do I have left?

Yet, we have all gotten into a routine of sorts – whether it’s working from home, classes from home…nearly everything, from home. We are dispersed all over the city, U.S., and world. These have been some tough times for our Stern family in terms of layoffs, internships and jobs rescinded or delayed, and disruptions in student visa statuses – just to name a few.…

Solidarity in Solitude 

I write this from the confines of my apartment between shifts, but despite the ability to leave for work, I have also felt the effects of solitude. I miss the ease of post-class happy hours and the freedom to have lunch with my coworkers in the break room. Remember when we used to complain about going to class? Now, most of us wish we could go back to that routine with the liberty to come and go. I wonder how the ladies from Sosnoff Café are doing? What I would do to have $2.75 in my pocket, to go grab a large vanilla-hazelnut coffee.…

From the Editor: March 2020

It has been an eventful month between the presidential primary elections taking place; COVID-19 becoming a “very high” global risk, as per the World Health Organization; and the consequential impact on the stock market. In addition to that, there was the day-to-day stress of surviving our first month of the 2020 academic year back at Stern and wondering if there actually is going to be any snow this winter. We are persevering, however, and there is now only a week between us and the very much needed Spring Break. While DBis and some treks may have been cancelled, due to CDC recommendations that educational institutes cancel study abroad programs, the school break, whether spent in NYC or away, is very much needed for most of us. …

From the Editor: February 2020

It is with great pride that I take on the role of editor-in-chief of our favorite (and, for that matter, only) school newspaper. The Oppy took a little hiatus, but with a new decade comes new staff hoping to give you the same great paper. The Oppy has been the voice of the Stern MBA community for 55 volumes and that is going to continue with No. 56. This paper has seen many an MBA class come and go, and witnessed some of Stern’s most notable alumni. Whether you are just getting settled in for the start of your MBA journey or starting the final countdown to your last step out KMC’s revolving door, I hope you find The Oppy a valuable part of your time here.…
