An NYU education affords students the environment to develop skills and knowledge that they will apply in different contexts throughout their lives and careers. Since its founding, the University has never thought of itself as a gated community, it has always encouraged its students to think of themselves as participants in and shapers of their complex and changing surroundings. As such, part of NYU's teaching mission is to prepare students to succeed in a diverse world, which is realized in bringing students from many countries to study together in New York and the numerous options you will have to study away from New York.

NYU seeks to provide flexible and comprehensive opportunities throughout the year. During the summer you will be able to choose to enroll in courses in New York or in more than 20 international locations, and a developing roster of intersession programs enable you to take advantage of academically rigorous and personally enriching educational and cultural experiences in January. As you navigate the depth of NYU experiences you will also begin to hear about alternative spring break trips, research travel, and cultural enrichment programs that bring students away from New York to experience new surroundings. As an NYU student you will become accustomed to learning about new opportunities as they develop.

We know there is so much to think about, and we will continue to communicate with you about the global opportunities, but you are encouraged to bookmark these URLs. The experiences students have when they enroll in NYU's global network consistently remain as some of the most memorable highlights of their college career.

I look forward to welcoming you to campus,
