AUGUST 2012 ISSUE

Welcome New NYU Parents and Welcome Back Returning Parents!
The Parent Newsletter is a monthly online e-newsletter produced by the Student Resource Center to help parents stay informed and connected to what's going on around NYU in a timely way. The Parent Newsletter also serves to supplement the NYU Parents website which has numerous resources available to you and your student. Be sure to check the website regularly for dates, deadlines, contact information, neighborhood resources such as banking, storage, bakeries, supermarkets, and more at www.nyu.edu/parents.

MOVE- IN for New Students and Returning Students
For students living in the residence halls, the buildings officially open on Sunday, August 26. New freshmen are pre-assigned a move-in time by hall and floor (for Sunday only). For transfers, transitioning and returning students, no RSVP is required. Returning students (sophomores, juniors and seniors) can move in on any day through the start of classes. Classes begin Tuesday, September 4th, following the Labor Day Weekend. Sunday move-in times are available at www.nyu.edu/living-on.

WELCOME WEEK for New Undergraduates: August 27 - 31
Welcome 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.

For 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.

AIRPORT TRAVEL
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/

PARENTS 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.

RELIGIOUS 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.

FINAL 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.
