It’s our first day back at school, and you know what that means. Freshmen in lanyards clogging Washington Square Park, luckless students being assigned a novel to read before next class, and at least a person or two idly thinking about the fact that their classes in the Brown Building are happening right in the spot where a bunch of women burned...

Where to Join A Gym as a Broke NYU Student

Exercise is important. If Michelle Obama is telling us to get 30 minutes of physical activity a day, then we better start doing those jumping jacks now. Fortunately at NYU, we are blessed with two exercise facilities, Palladium and the possibly-about-to-be-destroyed Coles.

“We Are Your Friends” Is The Bro Movie You’ll (Maybe) Love

My fascination with “We Are Your Friends” began before the film became a box office dud. I heard about it months ago, received its trailer–which introduces us to Zac Efron’s aspiring DJ character–with enthusiasm, and was overall curious to watch a film about a culture, the EDM culture, that I have for so long found repulsive.

10 Years Of Youtube

We’ve come a long way from a crucial video of Youtube cofounder Jawed Karim visiting the zoo, groundbreaking launches of multimillion dollar careers (T-Swift & J-Biebs #4ever), and a little boy named Charlie biting a certain (800,000,000+ view strong) finger.

NYU Local’s Guide To Your Terrible New York Summer

For those who don’t have the privilege of using “summer” as a verb, the months between May and September can be especially painful—most likely spent bussing tables and dodging stray air conditioner liquid while that girl you know is off jet-setting through Aruba.
