Frequently Asked Questions

Before reaching out with a question, make sure it's not covered below.



THIS IS NYU runs on Tumblr for various reasons, one of them being that once our bloggers set up their own Tumblr blogs, it's incredibly easy for us to "reblog" their posts.

(Tumblr is also just awesome and is super easy to set up.)

If you already have an established Tumblr blog, we recommend creating a secondary blog. Simply put, this will ensure you get a clean start — no inappropriate cat gifs, etc. — since your blog for THIS IS NYU will be more officially related to NYU.



You don't have to apply to become a global blogger — just simple register your blog with us by filling out this form so we can get connected. You'll receive a confirmation within a week of registering.



We recommend anyone who starts a blog to invest in keeping it active, and the same goes for our global bloggers.

We expect students to blog twice a week, but aren't interested in word counts. You can share brief stories, long stories, quick quotes, awesome Instagram photos, professional shots taken with fancier cameras, videos, and so much more.

For inspiration, following the main THIS IS NYU page is a good start. Once registered and active, you'll also be invited to our internal Facebook Group, which is another great venue to get some ideas.



All NYU students can be global bloggers, not just study away students. We are looking to share the NYU experience all around the globe, which means we'd love bloggers from any of NYU's locations — whether a study away site or degree-granting campus.
