NOVEMBER 2011 ISSUE

With two months left in the Fall semester, now is the time to begin looking ahead to spring registration, final exams, winter break, and next year. In this newsletter we offer you information and resources particularly appropriate to the season, as well as useful information on staying involved and connected with what's going on around campus.

STAYING CONNECTED and INFORMED
NYU is a big place, with a great many resources for students and parents, and being an informed parent is a great way to support your NYU Student. You already receive the NYU Parent's Helpline Newsletter (click here for past editions), however there are a number of other useful publicat
ions you can view online, including the Washington Square News (NYU's daily student newspaper), the NYU Alumni Magazine, and NYUToday.

REGISTRATION
The registration period for the Spring 2012 semester begins on Monday, November 14, 2011. Most undergraduate students have by now been assigned a registration date and time. Registration for some courses can be
competitive, and students typically make an effort to submit their course choices as early as possible. Students should be encouraged to contact their advisor if they have not already done so to ensure they are able to register at their scheduled time. Also note that students with outstanding balances may be blocked from registering and were recently notified of their status, which can also be checked on NYU's e-Suite or via NYU Albert.

THANKSGIVING BREAK
As NYU has become a more global university, traveling for the holidays is not always possible for all students. NYU residence halls remain open throughout university breaks and holidays, although some services like dining and campus transportation may be limited or unavailable. If your student is staying around during the break, the Student Resource Center's Thanksgiving Break Guide will be available beginning November 18, 2011 for great resources and information on NYC and NYU during the break.

AIRPORT TRAVEL
Students have three major airports to choose from in the NYC area, with a variety of transportation options, including taxi, bus, train, and subway. For information on getting to and from local airports, click here.

PARENT GUIDE to the WASSERMAN CENTER FOR CAREER DEVELOPMENT
Entering college is the fulfillment of a dream for both you and your student. With the college decision process completed, now comes the challenge for your student to decide on a career path. Encouraging your student to actively engage in the career planning process at the
Wasserman Center can help your student make a successful transition into full-time employment and achieve independence. Below are some of the ways the Wasserman Center can help with a student's career goals: 

  • Career Planning: individualized career counseling appointments.
  • Resume Review: daily walk in hours.
  • Interview Prep: workshops and mock interviews.
  • Job / Internship Search: NYU CareerNet database.

STUDYING ABROAD?
If your student is preparing to go on a Spring 2012 semester abroad program, you both are probably
feeling a mix of excitement and nervousness. A great resource is the NYU Study Abroad website where by selecting your student's travel location, you can then choose from the "parent" (bottom of page) or the "admitted students" (top of page) tabs to help you stay connected and informed. You can also visit the Study Abroad message boards for general and site-specific information, or read the "Student-to-Student Guides" written by past semester students. If your student is living on campus and wondering what to do with their stuff while they are away, the Student Resource Center has put together a list of storage, moving, and shipping resources to assist with the process.

SPRING SEMESTER HOUSING
Living in the residence halls provides an invaluable complement to a student's academic career, allowing students to connect with people, places, and parts of the city like no other experience. For students wishing to experience on campus living, the Spring semester offers a perfect opportunity. The Housing Application for students can be found via the housing forms page, available through the NYUHome > Housing Forms Log-In Channel. For more information, explore the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services website by clicking here.

NYU JANUARY SESSION | January 3-21, 2011
This optional winter break session provides an array of courses during the January intersession, allowing students an opportunity to earn major/minor credit or explore a new interest. During this time, students can take advantage of intensive study as well as have a chance to enjoy New York City during a bustling and exciting time of year. For course offerings, and other information, go to
www.nyu.edu/winter.

QUICK TIP
Did you know that NYU students can access a 24-hour hotline, seven days a week, answered by mental health professionals who can help address day-to-day challenges students face such as fitting in, making friends, stress, anxiety, and time management; as well as more serious issues like depression, sexual assault, alcohol and drug dependence, and eating disorders? The Wellness Exchange is available for students who just need to talk or to call about a friend, and for parents who might need some advice on helping their student. The Wellness Exchange phone number is available on the back of every student's NYU ID card.
