Letter from the Editor: December 2020

The Oppy Editorial Board is proud to introduce its newly-formatted newsletter with this issue (Thanks to Phuong Tran, our AVP of Technology!). Less text-heavy emails and more pictures makes the email easier to skim before deleting. 🙂 

We are only days away from finals being over and, therefore, the end of the semester. Why not enjoy these articles during study breaks? 

SGov tells us about the socially-distanced events they hosted this semester. Ben Sellitto, a Langone student, shares a pretty impressive model he created to help in course selection. Owen Lee, our B-School beekeeper, shares how he got into his unusual hobby.…

Letter from the Editor: November 2020

This is becoming monotonous, wouldn’t you agree? “Another month of virtual learning, Stern is resilient, and we will continue to succeed!” Blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I’m over it, too.

Yet, here we are. There’s no other choice, and I must say we are doing the best we can. I’ve been trying to be more intentional and have been attending all the virtual and outdoor events I can. A Biergarten you say? In November? Ok, I’ve got my turtleneck, sweater, fleece, and down coat on. Let’s go. I may lose sensation in my fingers, despite the mittens, but the company is great and that’s what I’m here for.…

Letter from the Editor: October 2020

One month of classes down, either virtually or socially distanced in KMC. While this year only continues to get weirder, Sternies are adjusting. Whether it’s navigating hybrid classes, virtual recruitment, or cold-temperature tolerance for outdoor dining, we have proved to be a resilient bunch.

In this issue, we bring you some light-hearted reviews of virtual races, the NBA finals, and dating apps. We dive into some significant topics, such as the upcoming election, its effects on the market, and adjustment disorder. We had the pleasure of interviewing the CEO and EiC of Poets & Quants, John Byrne, about how his graduate school paper impacted him and how he ended up being a key figure in the B-school space.…

Letter from the Editor: September 2020

Welcome back!

Whether you are back on campus or bracing yourself for another semester on Zoom, we hope you are well and are looking forward to whatever this semester brings. The Oppy is going to continue to connect us this academic year by reporting on Stern events, current affairs, relevant topics, and delivering more of our regular features – Stern Singles, Stern Somebody, The Graduate, and Dear Oppy. In addition, we are happy to announce a new feature we’re calling Allyship, which will serve as a forum to continue our discussions on social justice and racial reckoning. 

While there is some much uncertainty in 2020, we want to highlight the strength of our Stern community and continue to develop our relationships and network.…

From the Editor: May 2020

Has it been a month already? Honestly, I cannot decide if April was the longest or shortest 30 days of my life. I do know time has started to blend together. I only differentiate days of the week by which hospital I’m working in, do I have class or not, and how many days of scrubs do I have left?

Yet, we have all gotten into a routine of sorts – whether it’s working from home, classes from home…nearly everything, from home. We are dispersed all over the city, U.S., and world. These have been some tough times for our Stern family in terms of layoffs, internships and jobs rescinded or delayed, and disruptions in student visa statuses – just to name a few.…
