Tell Your (Modern) Love Story and Get Published in The NY Times!

24302810.jpgThe infamous Modern Love column in The New York Times is looking to the college demographic to find out what love and relationships are like in this age bracket. They’re sponsoring a contest with an end result of being published in the paper, as well as $1,000!

I’m sure that many of you have stories to tell in response to the question that the NY Times is posing, “What is love now, in this age of 24/7 communication, blurred gender roles and new attitudes about sex and dating?” There’s no one better to address this complex and ever-changing question than someone in our generation.
