Letter from the Editor: May 20212 min read

Hello Sternies!

School is winding down for the academic year and so is The Oppy. In our final issue of Volume 57, we bring you…

– A review of Stern Follies: A Lad in B-School (spoiler alert, it was a HIT).

– We discuss pertinent topics, such as ‘Who is going to take over the SternMBAMemes Instagram account after MBA2 Morgan Salvan graduates?’

– I asked our graduating editorial board members to give me one last article to leave as their legacies. In a profound answer to that call, VP of Tech Mattia Janigro writes an MBA’s guide to Taylor Swift’s entire discography.

– We are serious at The Oppy. Sometimes. Langone Managing Editor Dave Kalan writes about the Republican scrutiny of Liz Cheney over her refusal to support Donald Trump.

– I explain the implications of vaccine hesitancy for herd immunity.

–  We interview 2021 NYC Mayoral Candidate and Stern alumnus Art Chang in The Graduate.

– This month’s Stern Faculty Spotlight is winner of Poets & Quants’ Best 40-Under-40 Professors, Dr. Michael Dickstein.

– After meeting with several editors-in-chief from MBA newspapers across the country, The Oppy formed a coalition with a small but hopefully growing group of top graduate business schools. This month, we bring you an interview with the editor-in-chief of HBS’ newspaper, the Harbus. Fun fact, It’s the only MBA newspaper still running that’s older than The Oppy.

– Stern Hobbies include knitting and…woodworking. Who doesn’t keep power tools in their NYC apartment?

– This month’s Stern Somebody is actually somebodies. We feature married duo, MBA2s, and founders of Circle, Claire Park and Kidae Hong

Dear Oppy continues to answer real questions with terrible advice.

– We know you have been scrolling down until you got to this part… We have THREE Stern Singles in this batch. Meet J.P. Panier, Erin Pettis, and Kathryn Whitney.

– One last monthly SternSounds Spotify playlist for this school year. Thanks for all your fun and eclectic submissions each month! We hope you discovered something new on our Spotify

The Oppy and Stern Chats will be partnering this fall. Read MBA1 Managing Editor Stacy Chen’s interview with Jennifer Evensen, the new President of Stern Chats for the upcoming year.

To our graduating Sternies, thank you for the positive impact you have made on our community. A special thank you to the graduating members of our editorial team: Conor Clark, Mattia Janigro, and Sanjna Shukla. They were instrumental in restarting The Oppy and will be sorely missed!

Until the fall…

Happy reading,
