This summer, Starbucks announced their plan to go straw-less by 2020 with the help of new, sippy cup-style lids made of a plastic called polypropylene. Here’s the issue: they contain more plastic than ordinary lids, so the new packaging is only beneficial if the cups actually make it to the recycling bin.
To whomever this may concern,
I have a problem with New Student Orientation, one that I think every other freshman will share:
It’s too short.
Honestly. As a freshman entering into Fordham, I did not expect to have to figure out things on my own; I expected to be taught.
Between utilizing my every last brain cell to decipher Kantian philosophy and feverishly skimming outdated textbooks, I realized I had forgotten how to love reading. Just as the U.S. education system sucks the joy out of learning, forcing students to extrinsically memorize material over actually understanding it, reading became exhausting. In an effort to remind myself that reading isn’t a laborious task, but rather something to be enjoyed, I read a book per week this summer.
I stand with Colin Kaepernick in his protest of the American national anthem. I have stood with him since 2016 when he first sat then knelt to draw attention to systemic racial injustice and police brutality in the US against people of color dating back hundreds of years.
The former Provost was well loved by the university community. by Claire Nunez Editor-in-Chief Today,…
To some outside Fordham, Dr. Greer’s soundbite might sound flippant, and both she and the Fordham political science department have since apologized. But a single slip of the tongue doesn’t reflect how much she cares about students.

5:19 AM- We leave the house, 19 minutes behind schedule. I feel bad because yesterday my dad and I were talking about how we were going to leave at 5 AM sharp, unless the ladies slowed us down.
This April, Fordham Experimental Theatre (FET) presented its production of Eugene Ionesco’s Rhinoceros.
Rhinoceros tells the story of a small town disrupted by the appearance of a rampaging rhinoceros. As the townspeople debate its appearance, or even whether or not it existed at all, it gradually becomes apparent that people are becoming rhinoceroses. This slow process continues until nearly all the townspeople have ‘turned’, leaving only the central couple alone to face the rhinoceroses. But how long can the two of them really last as the only humans left?
On Monday April 9th, David Axelrod, a former advisor to Barack Obama, came to Fordham to speak at the invitation of the College Democrats. The event took place at the third-floor auditorium of Keating Hall, because the Campus Activities Board was using the main auditorium for a showing of The Greatest Showman. Excitement for the event was more than organizers expected because the auditorium was filled to capacity and some people who arrived close to the speech’s start time were turned away after the doors were closed.
