Students call for Oppy to be cancelled after controversial “Dear Oppys.” Mob of Zoomers come to editorial meeting.

Last month, Oppy board members feared for their lives as angry protesters entered their editorial meeting. Who were these protesters? How did they get into their Zoom meeting? Why were they using scented candles as torches? Why did that one man expose himself? The questions were countless and many remain unanswered, but here is what we know…

The mob, including a mix of full-time and Langone students, formed in response to some “tasteless and falsified ‘Dear Oppy’ responses,” stated an MBA1 student. “We didn’t know the advice was meant to be a joke. We thought it was coming from Stern administration.…

Nocturnal Bernie Sanders Visits Prompt 50% Reduction in Stern Tuition Starting 2022

In an unexplained turn of events that can only be described as supernatural, NYU Stern’s academic administration this week announced a shocking 50% reduction in tuition, starting Fall 2022. The announcement comes just months after NYU shared its decision to increase tuition by 3.5%, citing financial hardship as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. 

According to the MBA-focused news outlet Poets&Quants, NYU’s renowned MBA program has the second-highest price tag in the world. What occasioned this shocking, groundbreaking reversal? Dear readers, you could not even guess this if you tried. 

As the story goes, about one month ago, all 12 members of NYU Stern’s Tuition Committee were visited in the night by progressive politician Bernie Sanders.…

The Covid relief bill: Better than a spontaneous getaway to Mexico

Yeah, Ted. I know. Mexico is fun as long as you don’t get called home within 24 hours. Granted, I’ve never been to any of those resorts in Cabo or wherever – my spring breaks in undergrad were far more muted – but I’ve been to Mexico City and I’d go back for the tacos alone. Even so, if you told me I could choose between a weekend jaunt to Tulum or the federal government passing a massive relief bill that will change the fabric of this country for the better, I’m going for the latter.

Some of you are definitely thinking I only feel that way because I’m a wonky political nerd who can’t just kick it and have a good time at Senor Frogs.…

NYU 2031 – Rethinking the University’s expansion post-Corona

Have you ever been walking around the city and thought “Huh, NYU has a building here?”

It can be tough to miss the 5+ million square feet (roughly six Amazon fulfillment centers) of space that the University occupies in New York. From Brooklyn to 1st Avenue to Abu Dhabi, NYU does not have a single home. For all its sprawl, however, the University unquestionably has its roots in Greenwich Village. Both campus and college-town, the Village is the heart of student activity.

Even as NYU touts a growing global presence, the Washington Square campus remains the University’s top priority for capital improvement.…

Reflecting on this past year and the latest on the “Fauci Ouchie”

This week marks the one-year anniversary of March 11, 2020, when Covid-19 was officially upgraded from an epidemic to a pandemic by the World Health Organization. At that time, there were less than a 1000 known cases in the U.S. and infectious disease experts were still hopeful we could get the virus spread under control. It was the first time in a century a communicable disease was categorized a pandemic of this severity (and hopefully, the last for at least another century). I don’t need to go into all the minute details, because we have all lived through it, but it is important to remember that in a year we have lost over 500,000 Americans to Covid. …
