October in New York is when students begin to anticipate their mid-term exams, papers, and projects. This month's issue includes updates on Parents Day, academic resources, flu shots, Campus Cash, enrollment verification, and graduation. As always, we welcome ideas and topics you would like to see shared in this monthly communication.
The first few months for many students are a time of adjustment to a new way of studying or even the way a particular course is taught. Some may even be struggling to meet their academic goals or experiencing stress over their course load. This is especially true for first-year students who may have trouble adjusting to the more independent work-intensive environment of college level courses. If your student needs assistance, besides their academic advisor, there are a number of other resources are available:
Parents Day, October 21
Registration is open to parents of new freshmen and transfer students for Alumni and Parents Day. The day includes academic and student services workshops, as well as office open houses. For details on the day's events, please visit the Parents Day website. If you plan on attending, we ask that you register by October 16 so that you have access to programs.
The NYU Student Health Center is offering FREE FLU SHOTS for all NYU students at various pop up locations and in-house at 726 Broadway. The schedule for the pop up locations can be found by clicking here. For students at our global sites, please have them check with their Student Life staff.
Looking to verify your student's enrollment at NYU for insurance or other requirements? Enrollment verification is available through your student's NYU Albert account. Read more on the process >>
Advisement and Registration
During the month of October, students will begin making appointments to meet with their advisor in preparation for Spring registration that starts mid-November. Information about the advisement process, as well as contacts by school or program, is available at www.nyu.edu/advisement.
Homesick? Lonely? Just Want to Talk?
The NYU Wellness Exchange is available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for students to talk with licensed professionals to address day-to-day challenges, as well as other health-related concerns. Students can call 212-443-9999 (the number is conveniently located on the back of a student's NYU ID). Parents are also welcome to call if needed.
NYU Commencement is tentatively confirmed for Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at Yankee Stadium. In addition to the All-University event, school-specific ceremonies are also offered. Look for date and location confirmations in November on the NYU Commencement page - www.nyu.edu/commencement.
