Editor’s Note, April 2015

April 8, 2015

“I don’t swimsuit” has been my personal catchphrase this spring. It’s not that I’m allergic to spandex (although I might try that excuse) or that “swimsuit” is even a real verb. It’s just when most people are heralding in “Swimsuit Season,” I prefer to piously observe “Girl Sc...

March gets a bad rap, and I blame it on Julius Caesar. The man was stabbed a few times (23 times, to be exact) back in March of 44 B.C., and everyone is still afraid of the month because of it. But really, there’s a lot to love about March. For one thing, it’s not February. And I bet you didn...

Phone Scam Targets International Students at the U

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] She probably wishes she never answered the phone that day. It was 1 p.m. on a Friday, and she was sitting in her apartment in the West Village when her phone started ringing. Her “hello” was returned by a masculine voice on the other end.
