What was supposed to be an educational opportunity for two NYU graduate journalism students ended up being a different sort of learning experience when they say they found themselves targeted by Marco Rubio’s campaign staffers during New Hampshire primary on February 7. The students, both black women, were there with a group of graduate students reporting on the campaign as part...

Drinking in New York is expensive. However, sometimes after a long week of NYU, you want to “turn up,” as I have heard the youths say. You have several options. You could not drink and continue leading a productive life. You could go out to bar and be “that person” and opt not to drink. Or you could get trashed in the...

It’s kind of hard these days to find someone in fashion worth looking up to who’s like… a real person. Thankfully, we did: Rae Witte is the managing editor of Style and Sneakers at Complex Magazine. She works in a male dominated culture and has not only risen the ranks, but done so while staying true to her feminist beliefs....

OK, so NYU’s Coles Sports Center was going to be demolished. Then it wasn’t. Then it totally was. Now it is going to be demolished again. For real this time. We’ve detailed alternate gym options in the past, but with the erratic hour changes at Coles, tight quarters in Palladium, and whatever the hell 404 Lafayette is, maybe you should...

                            To put it plainly, gentrification is rampant in New York, and the DIY music scene is just one of the many areas in which its effects are being felt. While gentrification may not be the only reason for certain independent venues closing, it’s certainly part of the...

NYU Student Government and the Program Board just dropped the lineup to The Violet Ball 100, and it’s huge. Crowned NYU’s Official Spirit Week, the Violet 100 has brought us big artists in the past, and this year’s won’t disappoint. Running from February 22 to the 28th, students can check out games, food and something called “The Pitch,” but the main...

Sunday evening–the entire fourth floor of Founders Residence Hall is filled with an intense aroma of chicken wings. As you approach the lounge, the loud chatter of football fans becomes increasingly overwhelming. The room is absolutely packed–the lucky bunch who were able to snag seats sit comfortably as the rest of us stand. Before the game begins, the crowd mingles...

In what was likely his final game in the NFL, Peyton Manning used that wondrous mind of his and let the Denver Broncos’ defense determine the outcome of Super Bowl 50. The final score was a messy 24-10 in favor of the Broncos, as the Carolina Panthers and Cam Newton put up a stinker in what was an otherwise magical...

When asked what his musical is about, Tisch senior Anderson Cook told me, “it’s about a scientist in the 50s with an inferiority complex to Jonas Salk who reanimates a human hand to make a name for himself, but it escapes the lab and goes on a rampage at a local fraternity house.” If you goad him a little further,...

Cooking in the NYU dorms is hard. You’re sharing a space with a bunch of people you hardly know, the sink is probably always full of dirty dishes, and the kitchen you’re working with isn’t exactly from an episode of Chopped. Despite these drawbacks, you still can cook more than frozen meals. Seriously! Where to Shop: You can find all...

/ February 4, 2016 1:47 pm / Comment / Andrew Hamilton Talks Diversity, Divestment, And His Hug Aversion

New NYU President Andrew Hamilton does not want to be the new John Sexton. “My concern is NYU in 2016, not NYU in 2013,” Hamilton said during a Thursday morning meeting with student reporters. “My eyes are very firmly focused forward.” But assuming NYU’s presidency — as Hamilton did on January 1 — means inheriting the faculty revolt, the accusations...

Are you an up and coming musician? Is your ukulele-pop-hip-hop-acid-jazz band the next big thing? NYU Local wants to hear from you. This semester we’re reintroducing Local Sounds, our biennial showcase of NYU’s best musicians and bands. We’ll run profiles of our favorite artists all semester, and send it off with a concert in May. Want us to feature your...

While former university president John Sexton was an undeniably divisive character among students and faculty alike, one thing was unanimous: his nickname. Referring to our baseball-loving leader as “J Sex” united us during divided times and fostered a community spirit at a school that sometimes lacked that kind of collegiate closeness. As of this month, J-Sex is pres no more....

With the beginning of a new spring semester, many of us are excited to get back into the swing of things. But this semester, some of my friends are missing, choosing to go abroad for the semester. Going abroad a semester is a great way to experience new cultures and make new friends in a different country, but deciding where...

  Just two years after the greatest closer of all time, Mariano Rivera, chose to hang up his cleats, the New York Yankees have acquired Aroldis Chapman to finish off games for them for a long, long time. Chapman is a big name around the league for a variety of reasons, one being his all-time velocity and ability to strikeout...
