The Culture Shock Issue

Filed under SPECIAL EDITIONS, TOP STORY, Uncategorized

Moving to the big, scary city is a huge jump — New York City boasts a culture of its own that no one is really prepared for. But NYU students have to make more than the jump to the city. Adjusting to college, NYC and especially a new country can be tough — certainly so if you’re doing it all at...

Filed under SPECIAL EDITIONS, TOP STORY

The 2017 Housing Guide

Diamond Naga Siu, Editor-in-Chief

Filed under Housing, Letter from the Editor, SPECIAL EDITIONS, TOP STORY

When the Housing Guide came out last year, I remember poring over it with my prospective roommate: grabbing a stack, ripping them up and ordering the dorms in various ways.

Whether you believe Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday or the perfect excuse for a mushy date night, the holiday comes every 365 days without fail. But this year being single, coupled up or anywhere in between doesn’t have to mean 24 hours of sulking. You are in a city with over 8.4 m...

Filed under SPECIAL EDITIONS, Special Issues, TOP STORY

The Polarity Issue came from a large amount of frustration and what often feels tantamount to despair with the recent climate — not just politically, but socially.

Influential 2016

Bobby Wagner, Managing Editor
December 8
Filed under SPECIAL EDITIONS, TOP STORY

When you go to NYU, it’s easy to be cynical. The inevitably of failure isn’t an easy thing to come to terms with. Going to class, nabbing internships, making connections — these are the things that make it seem like the ground beneath your feet is speeding up, whether you’re ready to run or not. The...
