Matthew Cunningham writes about some public health creators who have leveraged TikTok to teach people about living with HIV.
""TikTok was the first place I had ever said ‘I am HIV positive’ out loud. I could never say it before," said Marlon Van Der Mark, who was diagnosed with HIV at 20 years old.
December 1 is World Aids Awareness Day. HIV is a virus that, if left untreated, damages the immune system and can progress to AIDS, which can be fatal. When untreated, HIV can be transmitted sexually or by sharing needles for drugs. Since 1980, the HIV/AIDS pandemic has taken the lives of more than 36 million people, according to the World Health Organization.
Nowadays, HIV is a manageable condition, but too many people are still without treatment, or don’t know their status by simply not getting tested. To increase awareness about HIV and encourage testing, public health creators are taking advantage of TikTok and other social media to reach underrepresented groups, particularly young adults and marginalized communities."
Sara Deuidicibus gives us an analysis of the reported COVID-19 cases on campus this semester.
"COVID cases at Stevens have spiked considerably in the past few weeks. All positive cases are reported on Stevens’ COVID-19 Dashboard and in weekly updates emailed to the student body and Stevens community.
Currently, only unvaccinated students with exemptions are required to undergo weekly COVID testing, which happen on Wednesday in Gateway North’s Corcoran Room. However, students are also selected for randomized testing on Wednesdays. On-campus tests have been, and continue to be, conducted by Bergen New Bridge Medical Center (BNBMC) through the Rutgers’ RUCDR SARS-CoV-2 saliva testing method. The required tests, if not covered by the individual’s health insurance, are paid for by Stevens. Students who are fully vaccinated and feel like they have virus symptoms can now get tested upon request."

Arianna Gehan recaps this week's holiday festivities hosted by the Entertainment Committee.
"On Tuesday, November 30, the Entertainment Committee (EC) hosted the seventh Annual Holiday Tree Lighting, attracting over 1,000 students to one of the most highly attended events ever run by the EC. Even Attila the Duck was spotted walking around and taking pictures with students.
Students started lining up for food over 30 minutes prior to the start of the event. At 7 p.m., attendees checked in and flocked to the festive treats which included gingerbread men, apple cider donuts, challah bread, and hot chocolate. Just outside of Babbio Atrium, there were giveaways including mugs, tree ornaments, seasonal rubber ducks, and Christmas-themed plushies."

Benjamin Knobloch reports on the formation of Stevens’ 2022-2032 Strategic Plan.
"In a virtual town hall held on the afternoon of November 19, Stevens’ Strategic Planning Steering Committee unveiled additional details about the formation process for Stevens’ 2022-2032 Strategic Plan. The presentation offered a look at the process and timeline for the plan’s development, with a focus on the goals of each of the sub-committees which constitute the Steering Committee.
A recording of the town hall, as well as the slides used in the presentation, were made available to Stevens students on November 30 through the Strategic Plan development intranet page. The page also contains a link to a community survey for the plan open for submission until Wednesday, December 8, a timeline of the planning process, and a list of the members of the Steering Committee, which was previously announced via email by President Farvardin. The survey is aimed towards soliciting feedback from the Stevens community on what goals they deem most important for the committee to prioritize in the next 10-year plan."

Natalie Todaro gives us a closer look at the opening of the University Center Complex and when we can expect to see the Wittpenn Walk reopened.
"The highly anticipated opening of the University Center Complex (UCC) is coming soon, as most students plan to go on break for the holiday season and will return in late-January 2022.
According to Sara Klein, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs, 'the UCC will be fully operational for the Fall 2022 semester, but we expect to have portions of the facility — including communal spaces like lounges, the game room, event spaces, and the fitness center — open sooner […] We will have a better sense of timing for the opening of communal spaces in January/February of next year.'"

Arianna Gehan reports on Tuesday’s general elections in Hoboken.
“On November 2, Mayor Ravi Bhalla declared victory in the Hoboken mayoral race. Bhalla, now preparing for his second term as mayor, ran unopposed. According to NJ.com, this was the first time a candidate ran unopposed in Hoboken in over 68 years. However, this is not the first time Bhalla achieved something historic. After he won the 2017 election, he made history by becoming the first Sikh mayor in the state.”
Grace Miguel writes about several new student organizations that have emerged on campus.
"While most students were off-campus during the past year due to COVID-19, two new student organizations have spurred and gained traction. These clubs are Stevens Linux Users Group (SLUG) and the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA), among others."
