If there is anything MBA students are good at (besides networking), it’s system optimization.If there is a more efficient way to do something, we will find it. The Oppy asked you to share some of these shortcuts or alternative methods, and you delivered.

During your time at Stern, have you discovered a few tricks you would like to share to help newer MBA students?

“You can see what classes you got into before it’s officially announced if you look at your required textbooks on NYU bookstore Brightspace.”

Roe v. Wade: Then, Now, & Forever 

Last week, a majority draft opinion by the Supreme Court was leaked, stating that Roe v. Wade should be overturned. The historic 1973 ruling has protected awoman’s right to an  abortion without government restriction for nearly 50 years. The ruling has fueled debates between “pro-life” and “pro-choice,” often rooted in the argument of whether abortion is suggestive of “killing” a living being, and therefore  murder or if abortion is ultimately a right to bodily autonomy.

Can I be part of the social scene and be there for my baby when she wakes up multiple times during the night? At one point, I was ready to give it up because the mom guilt is all consuming, if not for my partner.

Spring Fling: Masquerade

“We switched our facemasks for glamor masks.” This was the motto on Saturday as SGOV hosted “Spring Fling: Masquerade” at the Capitale on Bowery.

I woke up Saturday morning and panic raced through my mind as I saw the unrelenting rain storm. There were still a thousand other tasks I had to complete before the event, and the weather just did not want to cooperate with us, rain pouring all morning. There were doubts and questions constantly popping up in my mind. How do we get nearly 500 pounds of Mondelez candy out of my apartment in Stuytown and to the venue?…
