Meet the New SGov Co-Presidents – Meet CoJo

The photo you see above was part of a poster that Joline’s roommates designed for us as part of our election campaign.  It never launched in the end, so we thought it would be fun to share it in this edition. 

The title was supposed to be “EQing Away – Our superpowers are listening, bringing people together, and driving change.”

Obviously, our intention was to make the whole campaign fun while expressing our key ideas, messages, and values. Both of us were very involved with creating bonding opportunities for and with our classmates from the start. From the Hamptons trip to Monarch to virtual happy hours to paintball, we had so much fun bringing people together!…

Why does the Langone Student Government (LSG) matter?

It has been ~800 days since the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically altered the Langone MBA experience for thousands of students. Throughout that time and despite tight restrictions on extracurricular activities, previous boards did a tremendous job rolling up their sleeves and coming up with creative ways to keep our Langone Student Government (LSG) operational. 

We view this upcoming year as an important opportunity to restore the traditions of the Langone community so we’ve began our presidency by asking ourselves how much students even know about LSG.

All-in. That is Langone Student Government’s motto this year. A huge part of our challenge this year is to raise awareness about the value LSG adds to the Langone student experience.…

How do you Recruit On-Campus When You Aren’t Allowed On-Campus?

By Scott Cairns

I know the experience NYU WANTS for you when they advertise “On-Campus” Recruiting: Company sponsored coffee chats, networking events at the Wasserman Center, and little bowls of Lifesavers on every available surface (a surely sizeable budget line item that was likely easily cut during the COVID-times). In fact, my first job out of undergraduate as a member of the NYU CAS Class of 2015 was a result of exactly this experience. Knowing I wanted just such a career pivot and that NYU had the infrastructure to make it happen was a small…ok, I concede a very large part of why I chose to return to Stern nearly five years later in the Spring of 2020.…

Dear Oppy: May 2022

We are proud to continue our agony advice column, Dear Oppy: B-School Advice for the Everyday Sternie – “real questions, terrible advice.”

The Oppy can be quite Stern at times but is here to answer the queries and qualms of all MBA students so send them his/her/their way at [email protected] or fill this out, anonymously.

Dear Oppy,

I just finished my degree and spent my entire time at Stern writing and editing for The Oppy instead of doing, you know, homework. What do I do now?

Dear Board Member,

F*ck if I know, man.

Did we fix it?

Here we are, folks. After about two years of me subjecting you all to my political eccentricities, this is the last time I will wax poetic on the, uh, let’s call them “quirks” of our federal government.

I know, I know, but you’ll be ok, I promise. Someone else will write about politics. Someone who actually covers it even! You’ll see.

While I am sad to lose my monthly outlet for expressing how adorable it is that five members of the Supreme Court were nominated by people who became President after losing the popular vote, I know that my work here has been instructive and impactful.…

A Day to Remember: The 2022 Boston Marathon

Three weeks ago, I ran the 126th Boston Marathon on Marathon Monday, or what is also known as Patriots’ Day. The iconic marathon had been on my list for a while as I am trying to complete all six World Major Marathons. It also has special meaning in my family since most of my mom’s side of the family went to school in Boston. When I saw an application in December to run as part of a charity team, I jumped on the opportunity. I knew that Easter weekend would be a weekend to remember.

I raised money for Girls on the Run Greater Boston, a nonprofit that designs programming that strengthens third- to eighth grade girls’ social, emotional, behavioral, and overall life skills through the sport of running.…

Is it for real this time?

Well this is odd. I mean, I’m not upset about it. After all, I’ve spent two years writing silly columns in The Oppy with a reference to the Mets in my bio. Clearly, I’m a fan.

Ok, maybe not so much a fan as a zealot or devotee, a blind follower who inextricably links his mental state to the current place in the standings for the New York Metropolitans. I cannot fathom a life well-lived if it doesn’t involve eventually seeing another World Series title in Queens.

Anyways, I’m burying the lede here. The Mets are good. I think. Like, really good.…

Bing Chen’s Ideas on Empowering Asian Communities

For this year’s Asian American Pacific Heritage Month, The Oppy wanted to highlight an Asian American leader driving real change in our community. We had the privilege to speak with Bing Chen, the President and Co-founder of Gold House– a collective of influential pan-Asian founders, creative voices, and leaders dedicated to systemically unlocking socioeconomic equity for new majority communities (fastest-growing but traditionally underserved) through unity, investments, and promotion. Chen attended University of Pennsylvania and previously served as YouTube’s Global Head of Creator Development and Management. He was a Forbes 30 under 30 honoree, a Hollywood Reporter Next Gen Leader; a Hollywood Reporter Most Influential Agent of Change; ABC News History Maker; ADCOLOR Catalyst Honoree; Asia Society Asia 21 Young Leader; Magic Johnson’s 32 Under 32 Leader; and Asian Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year.
