Fellow seniors: have you been feeling ultra nostalgic lately? Have you been belligerently screaming to your friends “I can’t believe it’s oveeeeeeeeeeeer!” every night you go out for the past five months? Are you currently scrolling through old Facebook photos of Hayden parties to arouse some sort of internal reconciliation that yes, college is over and it’s time for you to put your real-world pants on? Well, stop. Please.
Over the past four years, we, NYU Local co-EIC Myles Tanzer and Editors Leah Clancy and John Surico, have been collecting our grievances with the “community” here on Washington Square Park. Yes, of course, it’s sad that you can’t throw up on the bar at Coyote Ugly and use college as an excuse anymore. And it’s sad you won’t feel a part of the campus that you’ve called home since September of 2009. But replace despair with relief. Because there’s a lot of things we’re very, very happy to see come to an end.
