NYU Won’t Remove Anti-Gay Restaurant from Campus

Hillary Dworkoski doesn’t like Chick-fil-A, and it has nothing to do with the food they serve.

The freshman at NYU boycotted the fast food restaurant located on campus after she heard that it financially supports anti-gay groups. She started an online petition, which currently has more than 10,000 signatures, to remove the restaurant from campus.

“NYU prides itself on being a diverse, open and inclusive campus community,” Dworski stated in her petition. “That’s one of the major reasons why I enrolled at NYU as a freshman last fall. Unfortunately, maintaining a contract with an anti-gay vendor like Chick-fil-A undermines what makes this university so great.”

NYU Med Students Get to See Patients on First Day

doctor med schoolWhen you think of first-year medical students, you probably think of them listening to lectures, jotting notes about diseases and dissecting specimens in a lab. Not long ago, you would have been right. Medical students had to wait until their third year before they could see patients.

That’s not the case at New York University School of Medicine. Students get to see patients on their first day of class.

“I am possibly the worst patient in the world to have,” an H.I.V.-positive tuberculosis patient said to the first-year medical students in an NYU lecture hall as they attentively scribbled notes. “I thought I had the common cold. It went on for months.” Read the rest of this entry »

Journalism School Enrollment is Booming

I don’t know about you, but I was actually kind of surprised to read this. Forbes announced this week that enrollment in journalism schools is up, a surprising statistic when most everything in this economy is down, including newspapers. I was especially caught by this news when just a week ago CBS Sunday Morning ran a story called “Stop the Presses,” in which they talked about how crippled the newspaper business has become. The story lamented the end of an era for print journalism, citing bankruptcies, layoffs and even closed doors for many large and small newspapers. Print circulations are down, as is ad spending in newspapers.newspaper

So it makes sense that the degree program to land you one of these jobs is filling classroom seats… right? Newspaper journalism might be mourning its twilight, but journalism is most certainly not dead. While the Internet can be primarily blamed for the downward turn for print, it can also be heralded for creating an almost romantic resurgence in journalism. Computers and Web publishing don’t come with that hardened, musty newsroom feel, but it does open more doors, allow for more creative approaches to reporting, and reach more of the people we want to have hear our stories anyway.

According to the Forbes report, enrollment in journalism programs at Columbia are up 38%, 20% at Stanford and 6% at NYU. Even state schools are enjoying the surge, with an increased enrollment of 25% at the University of Maryland. They aren’t doing it for the love of the money, just the game, according to Nicholas Lemann, dean of the Columbia School of Journalism. “I’ve never met a single person in 35 years who went into journalism out of pure economic reason,” Lemann says.
