Welcome back to Under the Arch! In our fourth semester, we aim to entertain with many intriguing new themes, exciting new voices, and more stories that reflect the lives of New York University students.
This week, we explore what it means to experience New York City with each of our five senses. By virtue of living in NYC, we are constantly immersed in a dynamic, cacophonous environment that we claim as both our campus and adopted home. As we rush from class to class, from studying in Bobst to bar-hopping in East Village, how often do we stop to appreciate this hectic city with all of our faculties? In the next few days, we invite you to slow down with us: to look, listen, smell, touch, and taste.
Under the Arch is only as good as our readers, so I hope that you will continue to join us as we discover new perspectives. As you peruse, I hope that our stories will make you smile, laugh out loud, shed a little tear, or, at the very least, find some relief from the daily grind of NYU.
