This semester, take it upon yourself to explore the Charm City coffee scene. Luckily for students, some of the best spots in Baltimore are just a hop, skip and a jump away from Homewood Campus, boasting tasty coffee and treats that will keep you coming back for more.
As a self-proclaimed stress-baker, I always have the ingredients on hand to bake some of these simple but oh-so-delicious white chocolate raspberry scones. I have made these treats for just about everything — brunch with the girls, family breakfasts, early morning staff meetings at work and as a treat to buoy me through exam season. My roommate, Abbie, claims they are my best work (she may be exaggerating, but I’ll let her).
I’m from Brooklyn. As you probably know from any conversation you’ve had with a New Yorker, this means that I can’t shut up about the place. It also means that I have a deep appreciation for a good bagel — and high standards.
“Wait, so how are they going to make the beam of light that stops the meteor that’s magnetically attracted to the moon pool?” my friend asks me, equal parts confused, concerned and amused.
I’m a graduate student in Engineering for Professionals (EP) at the Whiting School of Engineering. A previous article described how a Hopkins math professor discriminated against me, horribly, as a disabled person. The summer after that class, I reached out to Student Disability Services (SDS) for help.
The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) announced its election of 100 new members on Oct. 18, 10 of whom are Hopkins faculty members.

This class is the NAM’s most diverse to date.
Hopkins men’s swimming has had a fantastic season thus far, winning their last home meet 201.5-59.5. A standout member of the team is senior Max Chen. In his most recent meet, the Thomas Murphy Invitational, he was named the Male Swimmer of the Meet after placing first in both the 100 and 200 Breast. The News-Letter spoke with Chen about his thoughts on the achievement, the progress of the team and their hopes for the future.
When the University implemented austerity measures at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, faculty, staff and students pushed back. In light of the recent financial report showing the University finished fiscal year 2021 with an operating budget surplus of over $212 million, these affiliates argue that the constraints proved too harsh and unwarranted. In April 2020, Hopkins estimated projected losses of $100 million in fiscal year 2020 and $375 million for fiscal year 2021.
The weather is getting colder, and the semester is getting harder. It’s time to take care of your mental health and step out of the Hopkins bubble this weekend, even if just briefly. Take advantage of this weekend’s events before it gets too cold outside!

If you asked 8-year-old me to share a fun fact about herself, she’d tell you that she has so many pets she basically lives on a farm. She would probably even count them off for you, only exaggerating a little bit for dramatic effect, of course.
Hopkins presents the unified aim of managing waste and reducing any harmful release of chemicals into the environment. The University encourages all members of the faculty and student body to participate in this goal in the name of sustainability.
Hopkins researchers have begun using Raman spectroscopy, a light scattering technique typically confined to the chemistry laboratory, in order to determine whether a patient will be a suitable candidate for immunotherapy.
Amid multiple policy changes following the pandemic, the University removed the mid-semester fall break from the fall 2021 calendar. The University has offered a fall break every year since 2010. In interviews with The News-Letter, students shared how the removal of a fall break has impacted them.
