Zadie Smith wants her NYU students to stay physical

According to New York magazine, U.K. author and New York University faculty member Zadie Smith is not just concerned about her students’ minds, she’s looking out for their bodies, too.

Smith is one of 23 NYU faculty who signed a letter to the university’s administration complaining about the proposed demolition of its athletic centre, scheduled for 2013 as part of the school’s aggressive expansion plans. The letter accuses NYU of misleading potential students about the gym’s closure and the proposed temporary location’s inadequate space.
