Why You Should Join SUNY Old Westbury Odyssey

...because we're kind of like a family.


Sometimes not knowing what to write about is the best way to actually get your feelings down on paper, or this case online. Odyssey has always been a great outlet for me to get out my feelings whether they are positive or negative.

While my articles don't always get as many shares as I think they should, it still makes me proud that people have taken the time out of their busy lives to read something that I created. I have many, fully written articles that are left as drafts because I never think it's a good time to share the content on them.

One of the many things I love about Odyssey is that you don't have to censor your opinions. Sure, there may be some topics in which people may not always agree with, but that’s the great thing about this: you don’t have to agree with someone’s opinion to get fully engaged in the content.

Writing for Odyssey has definitely shown me that I have a voice, even if I’m just one person. If you join our team, it can do the same thing for you. In a world of over a million people, Odyssey has made me feel like I’m a someone.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
