Notice: Articles with Subtle Advertisements Will Not Be Tolerated

All articles in Nexus are written and submitted by Columbia students, however they remain unedited and uncensored upon publication. Unfortunately, we have recently experienced cases of students submitting articles to Nexus that contain subtle advertisements or offensive content. In those cases, we removed the articles promptly thanks to whistleblowing from our blog readers. If you find such content in any posts, we are deeply sorry, and we request that you report it immediately to nexus.columbia@gmail.com so that we can remove the article if necessary. Thank you.
