Dear friends,

As the maturing sun winds down in its cycle, the whispers of a cool autumn stir us from our sunbeat siestas. With it, a promise of harvest and fruition to the creative endeavors we might seek and pursue.

Well-rested from our summer delights, we return to the city with an eager readiness for new projects and new semesters to begin.

In the spirit of back to school, this month’s Miscellaneous — Athletics’ no-frills round-up of the cultural items that inspire us each month — features a special guest. Our friends at the NYU Enrollment Management Team have curated our list this month. We recently partnered with them to create Meet NYU, a brand new content platform that gives prospective and current students around the world an inside look at the undergraduate experience of the NYU student. Look to the endeavors of some of their distinguished alumni for inspiration on potential pursuits.

Stay tuned for more editions of Miscellaneous in the coming months.

Then you take it
Forget what you see
When you close your eyes
Girl, you’ll make it.”
