Hundreds of NYU dental and nursing students, faculty and staff came together under the Big Top in October as guests of Dean Alfano at a special, private performance of Grandma Goes to Hollywood, the 2005-2006 program presented by the Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center. In addition to Grandma the Clown, the show features acrobats, jugglers, trapeze flyers, performing horses and dogs, humorists and superheroes. Earlier celebrations have been held at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and the United Nations, among other locations.
“At NYU’s Colleges of Dentistry and Nursing, we work hard and so several times a year we look for opportunities also to celebrate with one another,” said Dean Alfano. “These are great occasions for people from different areas and disciplines to get to known one another in a relaxed, fun setting. They allow us to recharge our batteries in ways that make us a more cohesive community. I think those who attended the Big Apple Circus will agree with me that it was of our very best events.”
