Christian is a senior studying Philosophy in CAS. In addition to being a Transfer/Transition Ambassador, he is involved with the NYU Philosophical Society. Christian has some great advice for other transfer, transitioning and visiting students:
"Work hard, play hard. That is, be serious in your studies and passionate in your recreation. When you're studying, study. Concentrate when you study, and use "dead time" (time on the subway, on the bus, etc.) to read class material, etc. Then, once you've studied as hard as you can, go out and enjoy New York City as much as you can! Research the best NYU clubs and activities, get a copy of Time Out New York! Find and do something that interests you every week. Take responsibility for your time, body, intellect and energy. They're yours now."
