When I got the news that NYU had allowed a man currently facing sexual assault charges to be enrolled in classes, I had three immediate thoughts: 1. “This dude is def white and rich.” 2. I know people who worked so hard to “Abolish the Box” and this feels like a slap in their faces. 3. My school does not...

This past Friday, September 23rd, NYU’s Student Labor Action Movement conducted a rally that began in the Shwartz Plaza and eventually made its way to the Bobst Library to deliver a petition to the University President, Andrew Hamilton.

Congratulations on being inaugurated as New York University’s 16th president yesterday! The student body is positive you will match (if not surpass!) the incredibly low bar set by your predecessor, John Sexton. We just have one simple request: release your birth certificate to the public. Honestly, this shouldn’t really be problem if you were really born in Surrey, England on...

New York University is located in the heart of New York City. One of the many reasons why a lot of the students at NYU chose this college was for the hustling and bustling environment. Many of us are from small towns and cities, nowhere near the size of New York City. We’re used to seeing grassy fields on every block...

Another year, another mention of Columbia — our neighbors to the North — in a Welcome Week speech. Major side eye. While I have nothing against Columbia, although it feels very Caitlyn when they insist on using a C, I don’t really have anything for them lol. So I was thinking… why? What don’t we like about the Columbia —...

Throughout the primary, Bernie Sanders proved himself to be attractive to college students . Hillary Clinton, not so much. Now, the delegates have been cast, and the nomination has been won — but a small but loud fraction of the party hasn’t called it off. Many NYU students are simply unimpressed with Clinton’s policy positions. “I was concerned with Hillary’s...

NYU has enrolled a former Cornell student Wolfgang Ballinger who was indicted on one count of felony sexual abuse for allegedly abusing a female Cornell student last July. Ballinger, who was president of the Cornell chapter of the Psi Upsilon fraternity, was arrested in February of this year and charged with attempted rape in the first degree, criminal sexual act in...

It seems like every week someone is suing NYU, to test our theory we started our new column “Who’s Suing NYU” to find exactly what kind of litigation our university is currently going through. Together we can try to get the bottom of the deep pile of hate everyone seems to have for our university! Stay tuned.    This week, three...

From dining halls to Washington Square Park and everywhere in between, NYU is filled with weird, wonderful, and outright strange things–things you probably stop noticing as you take off your lanyard and get comfortably jaded. Cutting Teeth is a column in which freshman writers reflect on what they’re learning outside of classes.   During my short time at New York University I have learned...

The NYU College Republicans have been at the center of recent drama after Eli Nachmany, the group’s president, who also served at the Chair of the New York State Federation of College Republicans, stepped down.

New York State’s College Republicans were in the news last week after The New York Federation of College Republicans, chaired by NYU College Republicans’ own Eli Nachmany, revoked Cornell College Republican’s credentials after the club endorsed Gary Johnson for president. The statement explaining their decision said, “Clubs are within their right not to endorse certain candidates within the party and...

Dear New York Film Sets, Please stop filming on our campus. I’m serious. Sure, NYU may not have a campus in the traditional sense of the word. But every Manhattan resident knows that the area surrounding Washington Square Park and Union Square is home to thousands of NYU students. And when you film in those areas, you’re taking away our...

Harambe isn’t funny. Please stop. If you say Harambe in one of my classes one more time I’m going to leave and my inevitable failure and consequent need to take another semester of classes will be on your shoulders–it’s a heavy weight. Anything that Martin “America’s Most Hated Man” Shkreli thinks is funny is most definitely not funny. Be on...
