Key Events for Grad Students

Graduate Life at the Student Resource Center sponsors events throughout the year for all NYU graduate students. We kick off the year with Graduate Welcome Week, and then plan an ongoing calendar of socials, outings, and workshops.  Check out the list below for great ways to stay involved throughout the year!

At the beginning of the Fall semester, NYU's Graduate Student Welcome Week offers programs, workshops, and events designed just for new graduate students! Don't miss out on this opportunity to meet other students from across the university, acquaint yourself with NYU and NYC, and have a lot of fun in the process!

breakfast for dinner

At the end of each semester, Graduate Life sponsors an evening of pancakes, bacon, and OJ, and gradudate students are invited to take a break from studying and eat Breakfast for Dinner! Partners and family members are always invited, and the event is free. This event takes place on the evening of the university's reading day.
