by the Student Resource Center to help parents stay informed
and connected to what's going on around NYU in a timely way.

New Undergraduates: August 27 - 31
Week kicks off the year with helpful (and fun!) programs for
new freshmen, transfers, and transitioning students from abroad
(sorry there are no parent's programs). Held the week before classes
begin, Welcome Week provides new students with a great opportunity
to learn about NYU and NYC, and to meet lots of new people in the
process. During this time, some students will be attending their
individual school orientations. Note that there are plenty of
Welcome Week activities, especially in the evening, to supplement
your student's school
orientation schedule. Students can create their own Welcome
Week schedule and incorporate other events using the scheduling system through NYU Home. More details are also available at www.nyu.edu/welcome.
returning students, NYU hosts Back to the Square Week and
includes a variety of welcome receptions,
the NYU Club Festival, the Reality Show: NYU, and a variety of workshops and programs
for sophomores to seniors.
One of the most common questions we receive is regarding travel to and from the
airport. As there are three major airports in the area, there are many options
to choose from, depending on your budget. Helpful options are available on the
NY.com website: http://www.ny.com/transportation/airports/.

DAY: Saturday, October 20, 2012
Held annually for the parents of new freshmen and transfer students, Parents
Day features a variety of academic and informational programs
designed to introduce academic and student life at NYU. It is also
a great opportunity to visit with your son or daughter and explore the city.
If you prefer, we also invite you to make the day your own, participating in
what your schedule will allow. Registration will be available in mid-September
at www.nyu.edu/parents. If you would like for us to send you a reminder, click here.
HOLIDAYS AND ATTENDANCE
New York University, as a nonsectarian institution, adheres to
the general policy of including in its official calendar only
certain legal holidays. However, it has also long been University
policy that members of any religious group may, without penalty,
absent themselves from classes when compliance with their religious
obligations requires it. For more information on this policy, click here.
EXAMS AND TRAVEL
Although NYU has a standard exam period at the end of the semester, the actual
exam time can vary depending on the professor. Some professors may choose not
to have a final exam, to give a take-home exam, or to have students turn in a
paper or project. What this means is that some students might be finished with
their exams earlier than the scheduled exam period and thus able to leave earlier
than the last day of exams. Unfortunately, the only way to find out when a student
will have an end of the year exam is by asking the professor directly and/or
referring to the class syllabus. So for those of you needing to plan travel for
December, have your student make the inquiries as soon as classes begin.
