Open Letter To A High School Senior That Got Accepted to Hunter College: Incoming Freshmen Edition

College Applications are stressful but choosing the right college is even harder.

Open Letter To A High School Senior That Got Accepted to Hunter College: Incoming Freshmen Edition

Dear High School Senior,

I want to begin by saying congratulations on getting accepted to Hunter College! Going through the college application process and getting accepted to a college is a very stressful and long process. But you have made it through one of those hoops, you have been accepted to one of the greatest CUNY's and you have a future to look forward to. However, choosing which college to go to is another difficult process.

Although I do not know a lot about Hunter College myself, I have seen a lot during a tour of the college and have heard great things from my friends and college counselors. Since I am an incoming freshman myself I will begin with why I chose Hunter College. One of the reasons many people choose Hunter is because of the location. Hunter is in the middle of the city where there is access to a lot of opportunities and resources.

The location of Hunter is attractive to many students and Hunter has its own stop on the 6 train. Another reason why some people choose Hunter is that they want to stay closer to home, this is the case for some students who live in New York City like myself. There is also a variety of majors and minors offered at Hunter that appeals to many students and pre-professional advising offered to students who are interested in any pre-professional programs.

I am interested in the pre-health program and I have heard that there are a lot of opportunities and advising resources for pre-health students. In addition, in this time of a public health crisis many people are facing financial hardships and Hunter is affordable compared to other colleges in the city.

Hopefully, as I begin my own Hunter journey whether it be virtual or in person, I will be able to offer you more advice and information about Hunter and the programs/opportunities Hunter offers for its students. In the meantime, I hope that wherever you choose to go to college whether it be Hunter or not that you will have an enriching and great experience.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
