NYU in spring

April 14 Edition


Performances, art shows, lectures, sports, conferences—with so much going on at NYU, there’s no excuse for an empty calendar. Here are just a handful of the illuminating experiences on offer this week:

The Student Senators Council hosts a coffee chat with John Sexton Monday afternoon. Bring questions or tune in to the live stream.

Students with Children invite you and yours to a spring fling picnic Tuesday noon; it’s a family affair.

The NYU Bookstore hosts SCPS professor John Tauranac, author of The Empire State Building: The Making of a Landmark, in a discussion Wednesday of the building’s continuing resonance in the rapidly changing post-9/11 cityscape.

Six finalists for Inno/Vention, NYU’s startup prototyping competition, face off in a Demo Day at Spotify headquarters on Wednesday evening.

Mayor Bill de Blasio (WSC ’84) joins journalist Maria Bartiromo (WSC ’89) Thursday night for a Speakers on the Square conversation about his experiences at NYU and his vision for the future of the city.

Also Thursday evening, eight Gallatin seniors give lectures inspired by the annual TED Talks.

Friday night NYU invites members of the community to a free screening of the winning films from Tisch’s 2014 First Run Film Festival.

These are only a few highlights. For more on all that’s going on this week, consult the NYU events page.
