The city is in bloom and students are flooding out to the patios
and into the park to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful weather.
It's the countdown to the end of another academic year -- for
some just ending their first year at NYU and for others time
to celebrate their graduation and where the future will take
them next. This month's newsletter provides updates on
housing, summer, graduation, academic support, and end of
the year transitioning.
ACADEMIC RESOURCE CENTER
As we enter the end of the semester, some students may be struggling to meet their academic goals or may be experiencing stress over their course load. If your student needs assistance, NYU's newly opened Academic Resource Center is a "one-stop shop" for academic support and home to the University Learning Center which offers workshops, group review sessions, and free tutoring. Additionally, students can work closely with a professional writing consultant on any piece of writing (except for exams) at The Writing Center, or meet with a Reference Librarian to develop a research strategy for term papers.
UNDERGRADUATE HOUSING RE-APPLICATION PROCESS
Phase 2 and 3 of the Re-application occurs this month for returning students. Phase
2 is Group Registration (April 3-17) and Phase
3 is Room Selection (April 24-May 4). More detailed
information is available on the Residential Life and Housing
Services website (Click
here) or staff can assist with questions by calling
212-998-4600 (M-F, 9am-5pm, EST).
of 2013 RESUME BOOK COLLECTION
Center for Career Development is collecting resumes for
the Class of 2013 Resume Books. These books will be
distributed to hundreds of employers over the summer and serve
as just one of the sources for recruiting next year's
graduating seniors. The deadline for students to participate
is May 17th. For more information on job search resources,
please visit nyu.edu/careerdevelopment.
THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 2012
NYU President John Sexton and Board of Trustees Chairman
Martin Lipton announced that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia
Sotomayor – the 111th Supreme Court justice, and the Court’s
first Hispanic member – will address graduates and guests at
NYU's 180th Commencement. All-University Commencement, as well
as individual school ceremony information, is currently
available at www.nyu.edu/commencement.
The NYU Photo Bureau
will also offer Commencement Portrait sessions beginning May 8th
(www.nyu.edu/commencement), as well as an opportunity to "Walk the
Red Carpet" -- a photo opportunity at Yankee Stadium where graduates and parents can be photographed together after commencement on the NYU red carpet in Yankee Stadium's Great Hall.
A MEAL April 30th – May 4th
Each semester NYU Students help feed
Hungry New Yorkers by donating left over meals and Dining
Dollars to City
Harvest. This past fall, meal plan members donated over
$9,000 to the organization ensuring nutritious meals for
numerous men, women and children across the 5 boroughs. Meal
plan members can donate up to 3 meal swipes and 90 Dining
Dollars at any NYU Dining location. Meal plans expire May 16th at 8pm.
Making the decision to live-off campus
is not one to be taken lightly. Looking for an apartment
can be complicated and confusing. The NYU Off-Campus
Housing website provides information and resources such as
apartment listings and websites; finding roommates; as well as market, broker
and neighborhood information Go to www.nyu.edu/housing/offcampus.
STORAGE, SHIPPING, and MOVING
To help with planning for moving out of the residence halls at the end of the semester, the Student Resource Center has complied a listing of commonly used storage facilities, as well as storage search websites on the Neighborhood Resources page - please note that NYU has no affiliation with any of the resources provided, we have compiled this listing to help you in your search. Additionally, students should ask for suggestions from their residence hall front desk staff. Per residence hall policy, students are required to check-out of their residence hall within 24 hours of their last exam.
SUMMER . . . Not Too Late to Register

more than 20 programs abroad) are offered from May to
