Note that there are no programs for parents beyond this day unless otherwise indicated. Students in residence will meet for floor meetings at 7pm which is a good time to say goodbyes.
For students moving into residence halls and starting at the NYU Brooklyn campus, a number of Parent programs will be available, including a Parent Welcome and Parent Residence Hall meetings.
The day will also include an opportunity to grab a bite, visit a number of student services offices, and for students to pick-up their NYU ID.
