Covid Journals: Feeling normal on the other side of the world

By Daniel Martin

During the Fall 2020 Semester, The Oppy will be publishing submissions from members of the Stern community about how the Covid-19 Pandemic has impacted their experience in and out of the program. If you wish to write about your own experience, please e-mail us at

The following entry comes from Langone student Daniel Martin.

Since I moved to New York five years ago, I had wanted to go to NYU, so much so that Stern was the only MBA program I had applied for. I began classes as a Langone student this past spring, and I was honored to share a classroom with so many distinguished young professionals as I looked to grow my network and make new friends.…

Best Outdoor Cocktails

2020 has been a year. At this point, those are all the words I have left to say about the last nine months.

2020 Thus Far

With the start of each academic year, it can be nice to take a moment and reflect on the calendar year so far, allowing us to review accomplishments and set new goals. Well, not this year. I think the majority of us would agree that 2020 is a dumpster fire, and we are no longer naive enough to hope it will turn around. After all, we do still have flu season and a presidential election to get through. On that note, let’s recap 2020 to now.

Note: This is by no means an exhaustive list of all the disasters that occured this year.…
