Let’s Talk International: Language and Identity

RSVP here for Let’s Talk International.

The discussion topic: “Language and Identity”. We’ll explore the connection between the language(s) we speak and their influence on our behavior, our world views, and more.

Tuesday, October 22nd from 12 PM – 1:30 PM

Lunch will be provided. Space is limited.

Let’s Talk International, a collaboration of the Office of Global Services and the Steinhardt Office of Student Affairs, is a semi-structured discussion group and safe space for study abroad returnees, international students, third culture kids, and anybody interested in international/intercultural experiences to explore topics such as identity development, cultural adjustment, cross-cultural relationships, and general navigation of life across cultures. While topics and short activities provide a framework, students drive the conversation in directions most relevant to them. Continued attendance is encouraged, though students are not required to attend all sessions.

Juniors & Seniors: Thinking of Applying to Health Professions Schools?

Applying to schools of the health professions is a weighty, detail-oriented undertaking. Students may begin the process as early as the fall semester of the junior year, if applying to begin health professional school directly after graduation. Those who decide to take a “glide year” between undergraduate and health professions school will begin the application process in the fall of senior year. Still others may return as alumni to begin the application process, utilizing the services offered by NYU’s Preprofessional Advising Center.
If you plan to apply to a health professional school this summer (2014), please take note of the following resources and deadlines:

The Preprofessional Advising Center’s prehealth listserv is our main method of communicating with the greater prehealth community at NYU. A weekly newsletter chronicles volunteer positions, health-related work opportunities, community events, programs/workshops, and NYU deadlines and procedures. If you are not already receiving the weekly Announcement Digest, please subscribe to the listserv as soon as possible.
Kind regards, CAS Prehealth
