Events & Activities

Students in select MPAP Summer Programs will be able to participate in events and activities offered outside of class where they will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture and sights of NYC and meet other students. Events and activities will be offered throughout the course of the summer and are planned and chaperoned by summer staff.

The cost of event participation is covered by a fee included in program charges. The fee does not cover public transportation to and from campus or any additional personal expenses for activities, such as food or souvenirs.

Events are open to students participating in various summer programs at NYU, and space is limited. MPAP students in the below programs will receive information on how to sign up for events via email before their program begins. Information about participating in events will also be covered at the University Orientation.

We hope the information you and your student find on this website is helpful as you prepare for the program. As a parent, the best thing you can do to assist your student with preparations is to discuss the program with one another.  Conversations about what to expect while studying at NYU and experiencing life as an undergraduate student can be immensely helpful.

Students sometimes arrive on campus with little information about what they need to do or what their experience will be like at NYU, because parents take the lead on preparations . If you are overseeing program preparations, we encourage you to include your student . It will help them know what to expect before they arrive and get the most out of their NYU experience once they are here.

All website information may be helpful to you, but the following are highlights for parents:
