Immerse Yourself

Trust us: when you head off to your first day of classes, you’ll be a knowledgeable member of the NYU community with a growing circle of friends. That is, after you take part in one of our events just for admitted students.

Our signature event, Weekend on the Square — held in April in New York City — is a two-day extravaganza of tours, meetings, and workshops on everything you and your family will need to know about the university. It’s A LOT of fun; and you’ll get home with a bunch of new friend requests to confirm. However, we understand that not everyone can attend. So read on for other fun and informative events just for admitted students.

Events in Other Cities: We’ll Come to You

New York City is a long trip for some students. Which is why we host a series of receptions for admitted students and their families in cities around the world. While attending, you’ll get to speak with admissions staff, current students, and alumni, and ask them any questions you may have about living and learning at NYU.
