The March For Our Lives that occurred on Saturday March 24 brought almost 200,000 people together in New York City, and hundreds of thousands more around the country and the world.

Throughout the years I've become closer with individuals I didn't even know that well in London. But, the fact that we...

A common misconception NYU’s student community is that it’s virtually non-existent. Many applicants are discouraged by the decentralized campus and disjunct student communities. At first, I had similar concerns. However, after spending some time walking through the bustling roads and pathways in...

Community is a fickle thing, especially at NYU where living off campus and being detached from everyone is cool. A lot of the community that I’ve found in my short time here has been through NYU programs, as much as it pains me to say it because I lose the small amount of credibility that I hav...
