####Ally Week Stands Against Hate
Ally Week, aimed at discussing and giving voices to all groups of people, has been held this past week at NYUSH. The week kicked off on Oct. 7 with the Exploring Identity Through Art event, which gave students an opportunity to share their stories and express themselves through creativity and different artistic mediums. On Oct. 9, following the U.S. election results, the leaders hosted a panel dubbed The Rise of Global Intolerance, discussing what Donald Trump’s election and the rise of nationalist parties around the world means for those who identify as part of a minority. The week ended on Oct. 11 with a closing banquet and celebration of unity.
####FYI Shanghai To Host Flea Market
Student Life organization FYI Shanghai is hosting a flea market for students on Nov. 18.

####Singles Day Fever Strikes China
The much-awaited Singles Day, on Nov. 11, finally arrived in Shanghai.
