As a global blogger, you are joining a pioneering group of students working to share the NYU experience with an audience that is both within and beyond our university’s global network — and it all starts here.
The following instructions will help you create your individual blog for THIS IS NYU and register to be a part of our team in 15 minutes or fewer. Don't let the multiple steps below scare you: we've simply broken the process down into bite-sized pieces to help you every step of the way.
THIS IS NYU is a collection of student experiences. As a student blogger, you will create your own blog on Tumblr and fill it with stories about campus events, your favorite pizza slice, class trips, art around town — and so much more.
The best posts from around the world are shared on the main THIS IS NYU page by global editors in New York who are looking for great photos, videos, and posts that capture what it's like to be in your shoes.
If you don't have a Tumblr blog, the following steps will walk you through creating your account and customizing your blog's theme. If you already have a Tumblr blog, you will need to create a "secondary blog" for THIS IS NYU.
Now that you've set up your blog, let us know the URL — or web address — so we can find it and share your stories on the main THIS IS NYU page.
Please note: After submitting the registration form, you are not allowed to change your Tumblr blog URL without prior permission from our team.
