Be Part of the Momentum: Tasnuva Tamim (STERN ’19)
“I'm the first person in my family to attend college, so for me to attend NYU is a huge step. It really does matter where you go to college. It not only determines the path you follow afterwards, but also influences how you perceive the world. I would not be able to attend this university had I not received my scholarship, and since someone thought it would be a good idea to invest in me, I have the motivation to do as well as I can.” Learn how you can help students like Tasnuva.
Events for NYU alumni—like the NYU Alumni Club in the Philippine's Guided Tour at the National Museum, hosted by Professor Purissima Benitez-Johannot (IFA ’84), pictured on the left—take place almost every day at locations in the New York City metro area, across the US, and around the world.
