Astonishingly, the Baltimore Orioles have the best record in the American League this year. In baseball’s hardest division, competing with powerhouse organizations such as the Yankees and Red Sox, the low-budget, small-market Orioles have found tremendous success and appear poised for a deep playoff run. Here’s how the Orioles have found themselves in this position:
The Fall 2023 Student Involvement Fair (SIF) took place at the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center (Rec Center) on Sept. 1. The event, hosted by the Leadership Engagement and Experiential Development (LEED) office, gave returning and incoming students the opportunity to get involved in student clubs and organizations at Hopkins.
I grew up in Shanghai, a buzzing metropolitan city with busy traffic and intricate crossroads. As an eight-year-old who did not accurately communicate pick-up time with my parents, I once managed to walk two miles from school to home without getting lost in the city traffic. However, I could not summon up the courage to do so until I mentally mapped the route I would take with great precision: turn left at the grocery store with the green and white shed and walk two more blocks after the bridge. I created a cognitive map where external landmarks provided me with spatial directions that guided me home.
The Irish singer-songwriter Hozier released his third album, Unreal Unearth, on August 18. Drawing on R&B, folk and rock influences, the album is heavily steeped in ideas of heartbreak and betrayal but also takes time to celebrate joyful memories despite the pain.
Working this summer as an engineer for a company that automates tasks in warehouses, I found myself constantly explaining my job in conversation with fellow engineers, students and even strangers on the bus. For three months, I was an unwilling defender of the existence of artificial intelligence (AI) — an existence that, for many, seems to foreshadow a hostile takeover of the human race. These concerns, while hyperbolic, betray a deeper current of unrest surrounding the recent advances in public-facing AI. I believe that by looking at our past, engineers and automators can understand these concerns and plan for a not-so-distant, remarkably different future.
As the second week of the semester begins, you might feel your free time slipping away. While you may feel inclined to start focusing more on your academics before assignments get ahead of you, never neglect the arts! There’s plenty of material being released just this week that requires your attention! To save you some time, though, we’ve put together this list for you.
A cruel irony that is only understood after your second year: The best time to be at college is when you’re not there. Such is the tyranny of the academic calendar. The nicer it is outside, the less time you spend there. Constant classes when it’s cold and horrible, midterms in the peak of spring, everything due when you’re dying for the Beach, and so on. Only when you dare to spend all summer on campus do you break the cycle. Here, as you enter academic purgatory — otherwise known as a master’s degree – you gain the posture to look beyond your next step and notice the redness of the bricks.
Welcome back, Blue Jays! As the semester begins, The News-Letter’s Science and Technology section invites you to take a moment each week to learn about the exciting developments in STEM. Part of doing research is noting the research done by others, and we hope to provide you with a resource to do just that.
Adjusting to college seems, to me, like becoming an adult.
The 2023–2024 academic year has added new services for the student body. Hopkins Dining and Transportation Services announced changes to their operations that have elicited positive responses from students as well as constructive feedback.
Welcome back to school! Hope everyone had a good first week of classes. Celebrate with a Labor Day weekend full of events, both at school and around Baltimore.
The Student Government Association (SGA) held its first weekly general body meeting of the year on August 29 to discuss the Board of Trustees Resolution, the Barbie At The Beach (BATB) Funding Bill, Spring 2023 Bylaws Updates and the Caucus Constitution Amendment.
As freshmen are adjusting to campus, so are we. For returning students, this isn’t the Hopkins we’ve always known (though that’s not necessarily a bad thing). With new physical changes and new policy changes, our ever-evolving campus looks a bit different this semester.
College is a fast-paced and information-packed environment where it's easy for students to fall behind if not properly prepared. However, in the age of the internet where information is at our fingertips, there is nothing you can't find, learn or utilize online. Here are eight helpful websites you may find helpful during your time in college. Don't forget to bookmark them!
So you’re feeling overwhelmed with coursework...
Welcome to Hopkins! As a student, a lot of your time is unfortunately taken up by studying for your upcoming midterm or finishing up a problem set. Fortunately, our campus is filled with a plethora of places to study, and, depending on your mood, you can always find a new place to get some work done.
Everything you do has an opportunity cost. More time studying means less time with friends. Going to office hours might mean missing a club meeting. Rather than feeling overwhelmed with all the options while trying to do it all, think about what matters to you most and prioritize those.
Upon my arrival at Hopkins, it seemed that everyone around me immediately congregated into friend groups. At first, these social clusters were loose and ever-changing, breaking apart and re-forming like schools of fish.
As a rising sophomore, I remember being nervous to apply to courses as I was freshly entering college last year. I would wonder, “Is my course load too tough?” or “How can I be sure that I will like the class?”
There are a few terms and phrases which are endlessly repeated in Hopkins small talk and have varying importance. If you’ve ever heard someone discuss how they “want to become more involved” or how they need to “find their people,” then you’ve already witnessed what I would name the “Hopkins anxiety” or more simply, “Hopkins FOMO.” Basically, everyone is constantly anxious to make new connections and further their career. Just another part of the ambition that Hopkins requires.
