Turkey season is nigh, which means it’s time for blasphemously long lines at JFK, pitiable class attendance rates, and stretchy pants. For some, Wednesday through Sunday will be spent in a cozy non-NYU locale, surrounded by the company of childhood pets and mildly-to-severely racist family members. For some, though, heading “home” for Thanksgiving is out of the question. Whether airline... View Article

NYU White Student Union Page Probably A 4Chan Hoax

On Friday night, a page called “NYU White Student Union” was created on Facebook. The group describes itself on Facebook as, “a community for NYU students of European descent.” But the page, which has seen heavy backlash from the NYU community, is likely just a well-executed 4chan troll. Facebook users who have “liked” the page are hidden. The page had around 60 likes... View Article

An Open Love Letter To The Power And Magic Of Grimes

When I told my father I was going to see Grimes in concert he asked “Who’s that?” and I found I really didn’t know what to say. How does one describe Grimes? She’s been labeled every variation and combination of “faerie,” “nymphette,” and “space queen” since her rise to prominence after her 2012 release Visions. Pitchfork even went so far as to...

Is The Cosmo Girl A Feminist?

Cosmopolitan Magazine has come a long way. It has been a forerunner for women’s magazines and has set many precedents, especially when opening up the dialogue about female sexuality.
