As students selttle into their second month of classes (and the Monday holiday), mid-term exams, papers, and end-of-term projects are not far off in the future. This month's issue includes a reminder about Parents Day, flu shots, and enrollment verification, as well as helpful information on academic resources, student success, safety and security reporting, and more. As always, we welcome ideas and topics you would like to see shared in this monthly communication.
For many students, the first weeks of the semester can be a time of adjustment to a new way of studying or even learning. Some students 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, a number of academic resources are also available:
Just as the name suggests, the Office of Student Success is here to make sure your student is supported and successful during their journey at NYU. We are committed to helping you navigate this large and exciting institution, facilitate relationships, and serve as a resource for you and your student.
