Introducing GEMS: Stern’s New Gaming and Esports Management Society

“Starting a club from the ground up is definitely no small feat, but luckily we have folks who are very passionate”, says Sharon Wei, president of the Gaming and Esports Management Society (GEMS).

Truer words have never been spoken. In a conversation that could have easily gone on for hours, I spoke with Sharon Wei and Aras Scimemi, two of the founding members of GEMS, along with Ismet Jooma, about the new club’s inception, vision, the industry as a whole, and why you should join.

Stern Singles Presents: Jeremy Kim 

Sternie Testimonials:

“I have known Jeremy since we were Freshmen at NYU when he wore Abercrombie polos and had no facial hair. He recently officiated my wedding — best officiant ever. Jeremy is always kind and sassy when he needs to be. He’s incredibly supportive and loyal to the people he cares about. Some of his oldest friends call him Jer Bear because he’s cuddly but the claws come out if you mess with his people! He’s also cool as a cucumber in stressful situations and really good at problem solving so you definitely want him on your bank heist crew.”

2022 Fall Ball Recap

“Fall Ball was one of the swankiest parties I’ve ever attended. Between the ambiance, drinks, photo booths, and music, it was hard to not have a great time. The venue was packed, which sometimes made it hard to find friends, but even if it took a while to find who I was looking for, I ran into so many interesting conversations and groups along the way. Can’t wait for spring fling!” – Dani Elwell 

Getting that yellowtail at TAO! Last Saturday SGOV and LSG hosted Fall Ball: Dress to the nines at TAO Downtown. 

This was a momentous event. Finally after this long pandemic, we are back to co-hosting events!…

2022 New York City Marathon Recap: Kelly Rupinski

The New York City Marathon took place on November 6th. It is a massive event that was established in 1970 and is always held on the first Sunday of November.

In 2021, the pandemic precautions limited the number of competitors to 33,000, but this year 50,000 racers were expected. The marathon grew from 100 spectators watching 127 competitors in 1970 to the largest marathon in the world, with around 2 million spectators lining the course and millions watching it over ESPN broadcasting and online streaming as well.…
