Letter from the Editor Fashion photographer Bill Cunningham once said, “Fashion is the armor to survive everyday life.” During New York Fashion Week, reality embraces fantasy and the armor becomes the focal point, presented, worn and celebrated by the most fashionable following. Each season, ...

NYU’s new freshman class descended upon the city this last week, and though they hail from all corners of the globe, they share the whirlwind that is their first week of college. I tend to think of my life in terms of firsts — my first teddy bear, my first time at sleepaway camp, my first school...

NYU is a dream school. People flock from near and far to don the Violet — if only metaphorically — but once we’re here, we often get so caught up in the bureaucratic mess of it all. We become so bogged down with Writing the Essay and group projects that are not teaching us anything about collaboration t...

While the fast pace of city life is invigorating and exciting, wasteful behaviors often get swept up in the hastiness. New York’s fashion industry is no exception — with Zara and other fast-fashion stores on what seems like every other block, there is an underlying reality of pollution and waste...

When I began working on the Environmental Issue, a scene from the movie Les Choristes, which I was forced to watch many many years ago in French class, came to mind. Whilst explaining his approach toward disciplining children in school, the teacher in the film coins the phrase “Action, Reaction”...

Some people love fairy tales, but I personally love stories about food. Food and the way we consume it has evolved so rapidly — you can even see the changes in tastes and preferences by comparing a Washington Square News dining article from this year and another one from last year. But like any trend...

The Arts Issue: Venn Diagrams

Hailey Nuthals, Arts Editor

Filed under SPECIAL EDITIONS, TOP STORY, Uncategorized

This issue is a love poem to Venn diagrams. It is an ode to intersectionality. It is a peace offering to partisanship. I’m a very graphic learner. At the age of nine, I learned how to waterski by watching my younger sister get dragged by the boat for what her arms must have felt like were ho...

Filed under SPECIAL EDITIONS, TOP STORY, Uncategorized

Research is contemplation in action. Although it can involve extensive reading and long hours in the lab, it is not a passive activity — research is the pursuit of information to better the world we live in. At NYU, the title “research university” is taken seriously, as research initiatives exist...

It’s easy to get stuck in routine: get up every morning, do the same things, think of things the same way. A routine is a routine, and it’s comforting. But sometimes getting off the beaten road — straying away from routine, trying something new or doing something that doesn’t always seem like...
