What I learned from my terrible, no-good summer internship

May has finally arrived. Classes are done, Follies has wrapped, and the MBA2s are ready to graduate. And that means the MBA1s are preparing for their summer internships. Despite the strange and/or virtual setup most of you will have, I am certain that the majority of you will have interesting, challenging, and memorable experiences. You will work hard, learn, and grow and come back from your summer with a clearer vision of your future path. You’ll build friendships even stronger than those you have built at Stern. It will be an amazing experience.

Unfortunately, for some of you, the experience will not be so great.…

Farewell

After two years at Stern and four semesters writing for The Oppy, this will be my last issue. My first article in The Oppy was an in-depth look at the political bent of the student body on the eve of the 2018 midterm election. This was followed up by an overview of the Vietnam spring break trek for The Oppy’s final paper edition. 

The next thing I knew, the entire editorial staff of The Oppy had stepped down (Langone summer graduation) and I was annointed Editor-in-Chief. This was a shock – I had fully anticipated writing for the newspaper, but I had not planned on leading it, let alone re-establishing the entire staff.…

The Biden Veepstakes: Let’s get premature!

With the United States stuck in a holding pattern, I would say you might have forgotten we’re just six months away from the “Most Important Election of our Lifetimes” since we had the 2018 Midterm “Most Important Election of our Lifetimes,” but let’s be real. You’re stuck in your home all day with nothing to do but binge the latest Netflix miniseries and watch the news.

You definitely didn’t forget we’re just six months away from the 2020 U.S. Presidential “Most Important Election of our Lifetimes.”

Unless you’re as focused on your day job as, say, Alabama coach Nick Saban, you’ve known since November 9, 2016 that we would do the whole thing again in November 2020.…

Running to Combat Food Insecurity in the Bronx

The charitable nature of the Stern community has become more evident than ever during this crisis. Sternies have gotten involved with nonprofits that raise money for PPE and feed our healthcare workers. Classmates have been checking in on me and other frontline Langoners to make sure we are doing okay. Friends have ensured that my coworkers and I are being fed during shifts with gift cards and food donations. Professors have been incredibly understanding of hospital on-call scheduling and flexible with attendance and assignment deadlines. Although we are apart, we are more unified than ever. 

I cannot gloss over that these are scary and uncertain times.…

Incoming SGov Presidents: New Year, New Challenges, and New Opportunities

By Antonella Tellez and Ashwin Chandra

Remember early March? It feels like it’s been about ten years since then. The days were unseasonably warm and we were full of excitement for spring break travel and on-campus events ahead. Needless to say, our spring semester hasn’t gone as planned. We’re now spread across the world and we see each other in little rectangles on our laptops. But while virtual school will never replace the real thing, it’s been amazing to see how the Stern community has pulled together. We’ve helped each other navigate recruiting, brought in exciting speakers, and even maintained a full virtual social calendar.…
