Can’t Rain on our Yacht Night

Saturday was the LSG hosted “Yacht Night” on the Cornucopia Majesty Charter Yacht. The event was ironically called “Sail into Summer” on a freezing, miserably wet day. I also had the good fortune of working on Saturday. As I ran out of the hospital to grab a cup of coffee earlier that day, and was nearly simultaneously blown away and drowned by the weather, I wondered how this cruise would go. I sent a lot of Perfect Storm gifs to my Langone buddies to mentally prepare for the night.

Fortunately for all of us, the weather had vastly improved by that evening.…

Stern’s Favorite Band, Per My Last Email, Rocks Again in Sold Out Farewell Show

Per My Last Email concert at Drom, April 22nd, 2022. From left to right: Hondo Katz (guitar), Brendan Grambow (guitar/vocals), Andy Yang (lead vocals), Daniel Paul (keyboard), Drew Schmitz (drums), Fernando Schiantarelli (drums), Max Colbert (guitar), Sebastian Beltrame (bass)

For many of us, a rock band, especially one that favors tunes from Lizzo, Fountains of Wayne and Harry Styles alike, was one of the most unexpected things to have come out of the MBA program. What first seemed like an odd, amusing hobby became a favorite Stern ensemble that ended their official run with two sold out shows. Not only was their music the foundation of their unlikely friendships, but it also brought us together as a community, where we made some of our best memories at Stern, and for that, we are grateful.…

Stern Follies: A Backstage View

By Penny Burgess

At 7:20pm on Friday, May 6th, I was standing backstage right (when you’re facing the stage, that’s the front left corner, for all you non-theater kids!) at the Skirball Theater. Stern Superlatives were running on the screen on loop, awarding Sternies with titles like “Most Likely to Have a 20 Year Plan” and “Most Likely to Buy Shots for Everyone After the Show.” I was standing right on the edge of backstage, so I couldn’t see the audience, but I could hear the laughs and cheers as the seats filled.

At one point, Alexa Mauro, co-President of Stern Follies, came to join me, and I mentioned how excited I was to hear laughs for something that I had created.…

LETTER FROM THE EDITORS – PASSING THE TORCH AT THE STERN OPPORTUNITY

Dear Sternies,

First, we want to acknowledge the incredible run our current editor-in-chief, Deirdre Keane, has had heading the resurrection and successful resurgence of The Oppy over the last two years. We don’t know many people who can save lives at their day job, attend night classes, run a bunch of marathons, and restart a newspaper from scratch all at the same time, especially during a pandemic. Do you? Thanks Deirdre for all you’ve done for The Oppy. We didn’t quite know how to continue without you, so we realized we needed two editors-in-chief to run this thing after you’re gone.…

MBA Advice from a Langone Student

After spending a whopping four whole years as a Langone student – from pre-pandemic, to the peak of Covid, to this new world we live in – I feel I’ve learned a lot in how to optimize the MBA experience as a part-time student. From making friends, to selecting classes, joining clubs, networking, and having fun, it is A LOT with a full-time job. However, you did not come to Stern so you could attend two evening classes a week for a few years and take nothing more from the experience. It’s also the people you’ll meet and the experience you get outside of the classroom that will leave you satisfied with your time here.…
