Ceremonies, rituals and celebrations in May will mark the academic achievements of undergraduate and graduate students in the Class of 2009. Graduating students and their families will gather at Yankee Stadium for the University Commencement Exercises and at Radio City Music Hall for the Steinhardt Baccalaureate Ceremony and the Valedictory Celebration, and at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts for the Doctoral Convocation.
Around the same time, we are planning activities and events that are our traditions for welcoming incoming students.
If you intend to enroll for summer study and/or resume your studies in the fall, it is also time to meet with your advisors to discuss your academic progress and your next semester’s class schedule. How is your own educational planning moving you closer to
your career goals? Are there academic options that can further enrich your academic experience? Take the Challenge, Take Charge, and Work It Out! Take advantage of the many opportunities noted in the following pages that will enhance your studies and promote personal growth and development. Be involved! Stay informed! Visit our Web site
frequently at www.steinhardt.nyu.edu/studentaffairs.
Best wishes on final projects and examinations. Drop by our office and/or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay in touch. We want to know how you are doing and be of assistance in the ways that we can.
