Hannah Orenstein, an editorial intern at ELLE magazine and journalism-English student at NYU (Class of 2015), has shared a fun list on NYU Local titled “The 20 Most NYU Things Ever.” FishbowlNY’s favorite entries include #19, the Free Hugs Guy who hangs out in Washington Square, and #11, Slam Poetry, an art form that currently counts NYU as its leading collegiate practitioner.
