Stern Singles Presents: Katie Starsia

What’s that? The politics and sports guy is writing Stern Singles? Yeah, it’s weird, and if you all think romance isn’t my strong suit, my wife would probably agree. But some people are such obvious catches that they make this job easy, and Katie Starsia fits that bill.

Katie is smart, funny, as literate in politics as she is in reality TV, and an all-around sports industry badass whose TikTok culture savvy doesn’t prevent her from geeking out with the comic book nerds. Did I mention she was a Division-I athlete in undergrad and she does custom baking as a side hustle?…

Stern Singles Presents: Steve Reuther

Hello Sternies, welcome back to another edition of Stern Singles. This pot of gold is March’s most eligible bachelor, Steven Reuther 

Sternie Testimonials:

I have no other way to say this.. but Steven just gives off protagonist vibes. He always feels like the main character of whatever is going on.

This may be my favorite testimonial we’ve received. 

He is the most consistent friend I have. If he commits to something (travel, Zoom hangout, etc.) or says he will call at a certain time, he does. 

I don’t know about you, but this sounds like Boyfriend material to the Oppy Staff.…

Stern Somebody Presents: Kevin Coppola

The Oppy staff is proud to continue our feature for the paper called “Stern Somebody,” where we tell the stories of our remarkable classmates and how they became the exceptional people they are today.

Half watching the umpteenth snowstorm of this winter unfold, mostly paying attention to my strategy intensive on Zoom, I heard the words “national figure skating coach” and thought, that’s not your everyday person getting an MBA.

Going to business school is an amazing moment to completely change your career, so I would advise people to take that possibility seriously because you don’t have endless chances to do that. Think creatively, because a sideways move might be very good for you in the long term.” – Alison Taylor 

This month’s Stern Faculty Spotlight features Alison Taylor, the Executive Director of Ethical Systems and Adjunct Professor at Stern.…

The Graduate: Ben Sesser

“It’s a lifestyle decision, a different path. There are great parts of it and really challenging parts of it. If you look at probability, it’s not going to be the most lucrative and it’s not gonna be the easiest. But you’re doing it because you cannot not start a company.” – Ben Sesser

The Oppy is reconnecting with some prominent NYU Stern alumni with our ‘Graduate’ series. Each month, we’ll interview notable alum that have made an impact on their community and industry.

This month, we’re bringing you the story of NYU alumnus Ben Sesser (‘12), co-founder and CEO of the startup BrightHire.…
