APRIL 2012 ISSUE

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.

2012-2013 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).

CLASS of 2013 RESUME BOOK COLLECTION
The Wasserman 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.

CELEBRATING 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. 

DONATE 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.

OFF CAMPUS LIVING
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.

NYU SUMMER . . . Not Too Late to Register
A wide range of classes (including more than 20 programs abroad) are offered from May to August for students who want to fulfill degree requirements, explore new areas of interest, or accelerate their degree program. Summer Housing is also available for students taking classes, and limited housing is available for students who are staying in New York, but not enrolling in classes.
