We are NYU’s blog. Student-run and independently funded, our goal is to deliver all the discussion-worthy happenings in the school and city we call home. The site is conversational, the setup straightforward, and the information useful. Read our daily blend of original reporting and insightful commentary to learn about what’s happening at your university, in your neighborhood, and around the country. We’ll help you feel pretty damn connected to a school with no campus.

In the past five years, our alumni have moved onto prestigious jobs at publications including New York 1, New York Magazine, Buzzfeed, MSNBC, TimeNewsweek, and the New York Times. So check us out!

Instant news, however, is especially compelling for breaking stories like last year’s student occupation of an NYU cafeteria. For NYU Local, the blogger Charlie Eisenhood got inside with the kaffiyeh-wearing radicals and put readers there, with a marathon multimedia live-blogging collage so intimate that it included listening in on snippets of negotiations. The blog played the role of “managing this giant discussion,” Mr. Brown says, rather than trying to summarize the madness in the style of a traditional newspaper article.

The site screams innovation and is a worthy addition to collegemediatopia’s
larger efforts to reinvent the journalism field.

NYU Local has latched onto the unique nature of this untraditional
metropolitan campus and given it a beat.

    Hello, I’m not quite sure if you have heard of Dale J.Stephens, but I think it would be really interesting if NYULocal were to write about this really unique perspective that Dale Stephens is emphasizing. It would also be great for NYU students to relay their messages in response as well. Thanks for considering!

    There are bone marrow drives happening at the Kimmel Center tomorrow and Friday of this week for Janet Liang, a recent UCLA graduate battling leukemia. Would it be possible for someone to cover the event and or blog about it? Here is the facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/148883451898766/

    Thank you <3

      Hi Nicole, we credited your image at the bottom of the post, with a link to your site and page, the way many sites do. We apologize if that is not enough of a shout-out to your site, and we’ve changed the image.
