We’ve all seen photos on Pinterest and Instagram and are probably guilty of the trend ourselves. Houseplants, both living and faux, have taken over our window sills and social media feeds — and for good reason. Studies suggest indoor plants can have positive effects on mental health and productivity. Plus the vibes are undeniably good. Who wouldn’t want to live in a jungle or at least bring a little life to a dark, generic dorm room?
Former ambassador Marie Yovanovitch shared insider perspectives on diplomacy and the current war in Ukraine at the Milton S. Eisenhower (MSE) Symposium’s 2022 series “The Road Ahead” on Nov. 9. Over her 33-year career in foreign service, Yovanovitch served as the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, the Republic of Armenia and the Kyrgyz Republic.
When Julien Fenouil wanted to join the student radio station as a freshman in 2018, an upperclassman told him it wasn’t worth it. WJHU radio was dying, and Fenouil was busy adjusting to college life, so he put it off. The following year, the club had only one active member.
Fall was in the air last week on Homewood Campus as students participated in the annual Hoptoberfest tradition, organized by The HOP. The student-run event, which began Wednesday, Oct. 5, and culminated in a concert by rapper Desiigner on Saturday night, Oct. 8, featured seasonal activities like a pumpkin patch and an off-campus haunted house trip.
Baltimore is a city of neighborhoods, each with their own unique character and rich traditions. Tucked between Waverly and the Homewood campus, you’ll find the tight-knit, family-friendly community of Abell. For the past year and a half, I’ve had the privilege of being an Abell resident and participating in several of the neighborhood’s fun traditions, like the summer Porch Prom and the Abell Community Street Fair.
Students crowded in the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation (Rec) Center last Friday for the first fully in-person Student Involvement Fair (SIF) since the COVID-19 pandemic.
I knew next to nothing about Baltimore before I moved here four years ago, but it’s become a place I fondly call home. From a community research job at the hospital, working as a dog walker and sitter, learning about the city in classes, writing and editing for The News-Letter and exploring Baltimore on my own, I’ve gotten to know the city, and I hope you get the chance to burst the Hopkins bubble over your time here too.
It’s crazy how much changes in a year. Last April in a Zoom breakout room, we found out that we would be leading The News-Letter through its next chapter. After over a year of pandemic life, things were looking up — businesses were re-opening, masking restrictions were loosening and we were #vaxxed and ready.
I was a horse girl in another life (about 10 years ago).
Since I first stepped on campus in 2018, lots has changed (obviously). For the sake of prosperity — and so I can reminisce in pre-pandemic nostalgia — I racked my brain for some places, policies and things that just aren’t what they used to be. For better and worse (mainly better), this school is a different place than it was four years ago. Hopefully this list gives your imagination enough fuel to picture a similar yet unfamiliar Hopkins.
André: The bottle is ubiquitous on and around the Hopkins campus, not just for its low price but also for its easy-to-drink sweetness. This is probably one of the cheaper bottles you can get at Eddie’s, and it comes in a variety of fun and fruity flavors. In all honesty, though, André is essentially juice.
The University resumed efforts to conceptualize the widely opposed Johns Hopkins Police Department (JHPD) earlier this week to skepticism from students. On Monday, the new Vice President for Public Safety Branville Bard Jr. invited the Hopkins community to share feedback about the future police force.
Is it the media’s job to ensure that the public believes in facts? Not according to Yamiche Alcindor. Alcindor, a White House correspondent for PBS NewsHour, moderator of Washington Week and political contributor for NBC News and MSNBC, spoke at Hopkins on Wednesday, Oct. 7 about her career covering social justice and politics as a part of the Milton S. Eisenhower (MSE) Symposium’s 2021 speaker series “Rebuilding Our Future.”
On the 70th anniversary of her death, the family of Henrietta Lacks filed a lawsuit against the biotech company Thermo Fisher Scientific for the commercialization of her now-famous cell line. Lacks’ descendants argue that the company profited from the cell line long after its unethical origins were publicly known.
Last Sunday, I rounded up my brother and my boyfriend to check out the Abell Street Fair. The annual event took place just a short walk from my apartment on Guilford Avenue and within a couple blocks of Peabody Heights Brewery and The Book Thing of Baltimore. I was particularly excited for this year’s festivities, as the last time I attended the fair was back in 2019.
It’s the second week of in-person classes, and I’m sure at least some of you are looking to finally have a love life that doesn’t consist solely of movie nights on Zoom and swiping right. Whether you’re meeting someone for the first time or in a long-term relationship, spending quality time together is a pillar of a healthy relationship. This is where we come in...
Incoming freshmen asked; we answered! After collecting the Class of 2025’s top questions and concerns, seniors Laura Wadsten, Claire Goudreau, Adelle Thompson, Amal Hayat and Izzy Geada pooled their thoughts together to tell you what you need to know.
Life is tough right now for Americans, and social media and politics are no small part of that difficulty. The COVID-19 pandemic and 2020 presidential election would have been frustrating even without the avalanche of misinformation surrounding both of them. If you’re as exhausted by fake news and misleading social media posts as I am, read on.
I’m going to be honest, when I heard the fall magazine was going to center on the theme of joy, I didn’t think I’d have an article to write. Being a Hopkins student is stressful enough at the best of times, let alone during the chaos that has been 2020. I’ve been all kinds of overwhelmed, and I’m not alone; according to a survey conducted by the University of Chicago, American happiness is the lowest it has been in 50 years.
