This is the final post of the 2012 Fall in New York blog. Don’t be too sad! We will continue to keep students informed via the Fall in New York newsletter you will receive at your NYU email address.
The blog will remain online, so students are welcome to reference it whenever needed throughout the semester. We hope you have found the blog helpful as you prepared for and began your studies at NYU, and we look forward to seeing you around campus!
Welcome to NYU and enjoy your fall term!
With Fall in New York events, campus events, and happenings around town, how will you keep track of everything this semester? By reading the Fall in New York newsletter!
All Fall in New York students will periodically receive a newsletter at their NYU email address throughout the term. The newsletter will contain reminders of dates and deadlines, information about resources and services on campus, and notices about events and activities around the campus and city.
Keep an eye on your NYU email and be sure to read the newsletter!
While you are at NYU this semester, you can take advantage of the great opportunities available to you to get involved and meet other NYU students and also take advantage of events just for you! Fall in New York events include:
Every Thursday from 9-10 a.m.
Academic Resource Center, 18 Washington Place
Come enjoy the quintessential New York treat, meet your fellow Fall in New York students, and say hello to University Programs staff! We look forward to seeing you for bagel breakfasts this semester!
Monday, December 10 at 6:00 p.m.
Kimmel Center for University Life, Room 914
60 Washington Square South
Take a break during your final week of class and join your fellow Fall In New York students at this dinner to mark the end of your semester at NYU and celebrate the end of a successful term in NYC!
As a reminder, the University will be closed for Labor Day on Monday, September 3. The first day of classes is Tuesday, September 4.
The complete academic calendar for the term is available online. Mark your dates and enjoy the semester!
The last day to add/drop courses on Albert is September 17. That is also the last day of active waitlists. If you decide to change your course schedule, it is always a good idea to discuss your courses with your academic advisor! Mike West is available via email and for walk-ins at the Academic Resource Center (ARC). His walk-in schedule can be found on the ARC website (listed under University Programs). You can also schedule an appointment to meet with him by contacting the ARC.
The first week of class is also Back to the Square Week! During Back to the Square, all NYU new and current students can attend events to learn more about what’s happening on campus this fall.
Information about Back to the Square is online. If you have questions about Back to the Square, contact the Student Resource Center on the 2nd floor of the Kimmel Center for University Life or email@example.com.
There are two Back to the Square events we recommend for all Fall in New York students:
Tuesday, September 4
Coles Sports Center, 181 Mercer Street
The Center for Student Activities, Leadership and Service (CSALS) hosts this annual event to introduce students to the 400 student organizations registered with the office. Find a club of interest and join!
The Reality Show
Thursday, September 6
Skirball Center for Performing Arts, 566 LaGuardia Place
Tickets available from Ticket Central (located at the Skirball Center) beginning at noon that Thursday.
A gritty, funny musical about the lives of NYU students as they experience an array of confounding, confusing, and exciting issues. The Reality Show is written, performed, and produced by NYU students, and directed by Tisch School of the Arts professor Elizabeth Swados. This production is a student favorite every year and should not be missed!
Yes, there was! The Fall in New York orientation took place on Monday, August 27. If you did not attend the orientation, please visit the Academic Resource Center at 18 Washington Place to pick up your orientation materials. We covered a great deal of information at orientation, so it is important to get your orientation information and read it over carefully. If you have any questions after looking over your orientation materials, contact us!
