Spring 2016 Updates: NYU is Moving Up the Ranks of Top Universities 


We want to see your students’ faces light up too. Below you’ll learn about our admission process, as well as changes and events we have planned for 2016. But first, here is a look back at a few highlights from what was a remarkable 2015:

  • NYU came in at no. 30 on the Times Higher Education World University rankings, up from 60 only five years earlier.
  • Gallatin grad Zachary Fine and NYU Abu Dhabi senior Farah Shamout each won 2016 Rhodes Scholarships.
  • The Steinhardt community received four Grammy nods, and Tisch alumni won six Golden Globe Awards.
  • We launched the Leslie eLab, a facility where aspiring NYU entrepreneurs collaborate and tap into a vast array of resources to help develop their ideas and inventions.
  • Andrew Hamilton was named our 16th president. We warmly welcome Andy and his wife, Jennie, to the NYU family!
