If you’ve ever traveled from Homewood Campus to Fells Point, you’ll know how hard it can be to get to certain parts of Baltimore without shelling out money for an Uber. The Blue Jay Shuttle only offers rides within a limited radius, making it difficult to get to neighborhoods in East, West and South Baltimore. But, there’s an alternative to calling a shuttle or an Uber — Baltimore has a public transportation system. Why don’t we use it more often?

Celebrating your birthday in college can be a weird experience. When I was in elementary and middle school, my parents planned parties each year. They invited my friends and found fun activities for us to do together. As my sisters and I matured, these parties became family dinners or game nights with friends.
It takes roughly 40 minutes to get from Homewood Campus to the medical campus. Those are 40 minutes spent crowded among strangers as you sit through rush hour traffic, but they’re also 40 minutes of freedom. 40 minutes where it would be incredibly inconvenient to pull a laptop out and start doing homework, so your only responsibility is to hang onto a railing and try not to fall.
Just because the Day of Love™ has passed doesn’t mean you need to be missing Valentine’s Day. Here are some book recommendations, in no particular order, to remind you that love doesn’t have to come around just once a year!
If you want to know a place — I mean, really know a place — then here is what you do: You start by walking around, making sure to pay close attention to everything you see. Absorb it all, even (especially) small things, like cracks in the sidewalk where the grass shoots out. Then, when you get back to someplace comfortable, sit down and do some research on the history of the place. It may sound tedious, but this is part of it. Get to know the people who have lived there and the things that have happened, especially those that interest you. Then go for another walk. I promise it will feel different the second time.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March 2020, the Johns Hopkins University campus shut down. Students fled home. The libraries locked their doors. Labs closed. Research ground to a halt.
Between Milton S. Eisenhower Library and the Alumni Memorial Residence Halls, there is a large, two-story brick house that has stood there even before Hopkins existed: the Homewood Museum. The building had numerous lives before its current position as a museum.
Dear my freshman-year self,
Last week, an article from The News-Letter’s Science & Technology section was poached by an AI-powered “journalism” website called BNNBreaking only a few hours after publication. One of our writers found the BNNBreaking page, featuring a sloppily-cropped version of the same photo and a strikingly similar article about a Hopkins research fellow.
Some words of advice before you start watching Upgraded: Do not watch it in a public setting. Not because it’s explicit or graphic or any of those reasons you might be thinking — shame, shame — but because it’s surprisingly funny. I may or may not have started watching it in a study lounge and had to remove myself because I was laughing so loudly in the opening 10 minutes.
There was a window nook in my bedroom growing up, a cold ledge about a meter wide. I filled it with pillows and a throw blanket. For months in high school, I’d wake up early just to sit there before school, reading by lamplight for a dim hour, then watching the sun leak into the sky with my forehead against the glass. I’d play music, quiet enough not to wake anybody. I’d listen to the building’s pipes and watch the street lamps blink off. Sometimes, I’d make myself a cup of tea.
With Valentine’s Day in the spotlight, date spots are in demand more than ever. As the semester shifts into full gear, however, it’s too easy to become fully immersed in the depths of the Homewood campus. If you’re looking for some cute date spots to take your significant other or friend, here are some of Baltimore’s hidden gems.
A single light shines on a ticking clock. As the clock ticks, we are told the story of the Radium Girls, a play based on a book by Kate Moore of the same title. The play recounts the true story of a group of women in the 1920s who worked at a dial-painting company and produced watches whose numbers were painted with radium to make them glow.
The semester is beginning to pick up and your schedule is already packed with PILOT sessions, club meetings and office hours. Although you may enjoy the classes you’re taking and the research you’re doing, it can be difficult to make time for activities that are purely for leisure. For those who made New Year’s resolutions focused on hobbies, you may feel like you are losing your momentum — approximately 80% of people who made resolutions do not continue them into February.
The Atlantic announced on Sunday, Feb. 4 that it had suspended its relationship with Hopkins political scientist Yascha Mounk after a journalist accused him of rape on social media platform X, the site formerly known as Twitter.
