As The Observer approaches its 40-year anniversary, it is only right to take a deep dive into the dusty halls of the archives to explore some of the best-written headlines in Observer history. From poorly concealed sex jokes to complaints about the Fordham Lincoln Center elevators, these headlines don’t just show how Fordham has changed. More than anything, they show all the ways in which Fordham has stayed the same.

In her free time, she loves to read, write and listen to Taylor Swift albums on repeat as she walks around Central Park. She was previously an opinions editor.
Stevie Cortez, Fordham College at Lincoln Center ’21, is majoring in political science and minoring in philosophy and journalism. She writes for opinions and features, focusing on international politics and the perspective of the American working class. Stevie hopes to one day work as a foreign correspondent.
Clara Gerlach, FCLC ’23, is the opinions editor for The Observer. As an economics major with a minor in German, she enjoys reading anything and everything. When she hasn’t got her nose in a book, Clara enjoys hiking, experimenting with gluten-free recipes and making way too specific Spotify playlists.
