The NYU Minute is an E-letter from the Division of Student Affairs published a few times per semester, with special additions to cover hot topics. Recognizing the busy schedules of NYU students, the NYU Minute is designed to deliver news and information in "a New York minute" - a quick snapshot covering issues that are likely to be of interest to many students, with basic facts and direct links to more information.
While the NYU Minute is aimed at current NYU students, all members of the NYU community - alumni, faculty members, administrative staff, parents and families, and friends of the University - are welcome to subscribe to keep up with the latest happenings that impact student life on campus.
