NYU is obsessed with its 2031 plan and, consequently, with its plan to become a global university. But how do branch campuses abroad, and the subsequent expansion of the NYU brand, help students in the here and now? Is the gamble really worth it?
I called President Sexton tonight and left a voicemail with his office asking if he would take a meeting with me. I usually hate the shit WSN produces, but my feeling is that they're spot on with this editorial. This is a pertinent and delicate issue, and one that we shouldn't allow figureheads like Sexton to avoid. I'm going broke to pay for this school, and people want to choose preppy, white collar douche bag factories like Princeton over NYU? Oh, fuck no!
And if he doesn't take the meeting? I know tons of news sources that would jump at the chance to play their part in watching Sexton eat his words.
