Where Will You Go?

Studying abroad in NYU’s global network—which spans six continents—is transformative for so many students. In fact, more students from NYU study abroad than at any other university in the United States. At the annual Study Away Fair, we caught up with people returning from their time abroad and asked them about their experiences.

A First Year Student Goes to Florence

Cesar Francia’s acceptance letter came with a surprise: he’d be spending his first year of college in Italy. In NYU Liberal Studies’ First Year Away Program, students have the opportunity to start college at NYU academic centers in Florence, London, Paris, or Washington, DC. Though unexpected, Cesar’s time at NYU Florence turned out to be an eye-opening part of his undergraduate career.

In Her Words

From Stream to Sink

New Yorkers use 1.1 billion gallons of water each and every day. But how does it get to them? NYU students in New York Underground, an environmental studies course taught by Professor Katie Schneider Paolantonio, went out into the field to see the process firsthand. They studied the impact of pollution at the Croton Watershed, where a portion of New York City’s water comes from, examined the infrastructure of the Old Croton Aqueduct and the Croton Reservoir, and took a tour of the high-tech Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, the city’s largest water treatment facility. Click through for highlights from their trip.
