TRANSFER & TRANSITIONING STUDENT EVENTS
Transition 101: Academic Success
Thursday, September 13 from 5:00pm to 6:00pm | Kimmel Center, Room 905
One of the major stresses of transferring is in relation to credits and academic advisement. This week we will invite Academic Advisors from various schools to speak about registration, advisement and give students pointers on how to make the most of their experience academically at NYU. Resources and pamphlets will also be available about learning centers, study abroad and library resources. Don't forget to RSVP here.

In conjunction with the New York Police Department, the Department of Public Safety is hosting Operation ID. Register your cell/smart phones, iPods, tablets, laptop computers and other electronic devices with the police and have them discreetly "tagged" using an infra red pen, so that if a device gets stolen or lost and is reported to the police, identification of the owner is possible when an arrest or recovery of the property is made. This program is available for the entire NYU community free of charge.
