I’m now in mourning, with plenty of others, over the loss of my favorite cafe in New York, S’nice. S’nice was quite possibly the best place in New York for spending a long period of time reading, writing, studying – I once spent ten hours there in one day. On top of that it was vegan, and the food was great. Apparently, their lease ran out, and when I got there on May 3rd it had been closed¬†for about a week. The owner wasted no time breaking the place down.¬†

Music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, seen here on the jumbo screen, was an honorary doctorate recipient and the keynote speaker at Howard’s graduation. This caused a bit of controversy. (photo by Elliott Simmons)
