Stern Singles Presents: Elena Politiski

Sternie testimonials:

“Elena is smart, funny, and an overall great person. She’s  extremely down to earth and chill and the type of person that’s always down to talk and build her friends up!” 

“Elena’s the best. She was one of my first friends at Stern and I’ve been lucky enough to work with her in a few different classes since we started the program in 2020. She was a lifesaver during our Accounting class, and her positive attitude and sense of humor give me something to look forward to every day when I show up to class or group projects. Most importantly, I’m grateful to have her in my life, and anyone who’s lucky enough to meet her will be eager for the opportunity to get to know her better.” 

Stern Singles Presents: Matt Givner

Meet our December Stern Singles bachelor, Matt Givner, a full-time MBA 2 student from California. Matt traveled a unique path before Stern that took him from teaching and living in China, to starting a digital marketing consulting firm in Denver, to working in the cannabis industry where he became Snoop Dogg’s close and personal friend. Okay, maybe not close, or personal, but he did work with Snoop which in itself is a rarity. Keep reading to learn more about our bachelor this month!

Stern Singles Presents: Sara Mitchell

Welcome back to another edition of Stern Singles. We are excited to introduce you all to another eligible Stern bachelorette, Sara Mitchell. If you would like to nominate a classmate for future features of the Stern Spotlight, please email the Oppy staff at [email protected].

Hello Sara! Thank you for being this month’s bachelorette! Let’s start with an easy question. What brought you to Stern?

I went to undergrad for nutrition and was working as a registered dietitian ever since. I loved it but came to realize there wasn’t much career growth. When Covid hit I kind of re-evaluated everything and decided business school was the best way to make a career switch.…

Stern Singles Presents: Khalil Romain

Meet our November’s pick for Stern Singles, Khalil Romain. Khalil is a MBA 2, the co-president of AHBBS, VP of Corporate Relations for SGov, VP of Corporate Relations for GMA, and VP of Club Partnerships for Canna Business. Not only is he an extremely active member of our community, he is one of the most genuine, optimistic people you can meet, as a group of MBA 2s puts it, “Khalil is the heart and soul of Stern, you would be lucky to have him.”

This interview has been edited for length and clarity. 

So as I told you earlier, I consulted with my group of girlfriends, you came very highly recommended.

Stern Singles Presents: Sanjana Shankar

It’s hard to get the full picture of someone in just a 30 minute Zoom interview, but I think I’ve got a great one for you this month, Sternies. 

Sanjana was nominated by a fellow full-timer who gave the literal quote: “Sanjana is great, dynamic, and into it.” That’s the strong and short delivery to describe November’s bachelorette. See below for another testimonial: 

Sternie Testimonial: 

“WOW WOW WOW. Sanjana is the Wonder Ball of people: you already love what’s on the outside, but you’ll be captivated by the inside. Sanjana is a cross-functional friend: a confidant, a phenomenal karaoke partner, a helpful hand to a classmate in need.

Stern Singles Presents: Caitlin Wolfe

Meet Caitlin Wolfe, MBA student and TikTok personality. When I asked Caitlin to describe herself, she said, “I tend to be the loudest person in a room and the last person to leave a party. Part diva, part tomboy. COVID lockdowns kicked off my quarter life crisis so here I am getting my MBA! East Coaster, turned Midwesterner, turned back to an East Coaster.” It may be the best elevator pitch I’ve ever heard.

Sternie Testimonials:

“Caitlin is the life of any party she walks into, by bringing up the energy level and always finding a way to have the best time with both friends and strangers.”

Stern Singles Presents: Nathan Silverglate

It is October, meaning we are in the thick of the fall semester, and in the onset of cuffing season. What’s that? It’s time for another Stern Singles feature? You read that right. This month we have Nathan Silverglate, who was nominated by his classmates. If you’re adventurous and looking for a partner who will take amazing photos of you with his photography skills, keep on reading.

Sternie Testimonials:

“The perfect girl for Nate would be a noblewoman of Rohan who considers herself to be her own shieldmaiden, slayer of Nazgul. Or, simply an adventurous lady with a sense of humor.

Stern Singles Presents: Brian Fitzpatrick

Sternies, it is fall again, meaning STERN SINGLES is back. Did you miss us this summer? We hope you had a summer of Covid-safe love and fun. Kicking it off this school year is a 2nd year Langone student, Brian Fitzpatrick. I’ve known Brian since last fall, and when he approached me to be the first Stern Bachelor of 2021-2022, who was I to say no? If you like passeggiatas at sunset and cannolis, keep on reading.

Sternie Testimonials:

“When you first meet Brian, the friendship is instant. It’s obvious from the start that he is an all around great guy – fun, smart, considerate, and always down for any social event.

Stern Singles Presents: Sarah Gilson

The weather is turning crisp, but this batch of Stern Singles is hot, hot, HOT. Our first bachelorette of the academic season is MBA2, Sarah Gilson! Sarah is a ride or die friend, someone you can call in the middle of the night if you find yourself stranded or in trouble. Sarah prefers savory to sweet, and believes that champagne is acceptable at any time of the day. Her wardrobe is almost all black, no matter the season.

Sternie Testimonials:

“Even after a full remote year, Sarah was an enthusiastic orientation leader for MBA1s showcasing that she has a warm and sweet soul that loves to connect with people.”

Stern Singles Presents: JP Panier

The semester is cooling off and class is winding down… but Stern Singles is hotter than ever with May’s most eligible bachelor, JP Panier.

Jean-Phillipe is a new addition to the fold, forged in the fire of the quarantine business school experience. JP is also a part of the Executive MBA program, so he’s fancy. I can’t hold a candle to his own intro:

My name is JP Panier and I’m on a mission from God (insert Blues Brothers reference). I’m a huge lover of all things outdoors – running, biking, hiking, swimming, etc – and I’m looking to accelerate the transition to renewable everything.
