NYU Steinhardt

Dear NYU Steinhardt Parent,

In a few weeks your daughter or son will arrive on campus. Here, at NYU Steinhardt, we are preparing for their arrival, and I write to let you know about some activities we’ll be sponsoring to welcome your family into our community.

We Welcome You Here on August 28th

After our students unpack their bags on Move-In Day, August 28th, they’ll participate in Welcome Week, a week of fun and activities, NYU style. Students can take part in walking tours of New York City, community service projects, and attend the NYU Reality Show (written by and for students), and the NYU President’s Welcome.

On August 29th, I will greet our new students at the NYU Steinhardt Deans’ Welcome hosted by our Office of Student Affairs. This will also be a chance for our students to meet their academic advisers and orientation leaders.

You, too, can meet our orientation leaders in this special Parent & Family video they’ve created just for you.

We’re Reading Between the World and Me

All new Steinhardt students are required to read Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, and we also invite you to read it. The book looks at the idea of race in America and is a universal story about how each of us finds our place in the world. We’ll be talking about the book in our New Student Seminar, and we’ll come together in October for a special academic convocation to discuss the book’s impact with our distinguished faculty .

Visit Us on Campus: Parents Day, October 22nd

We hope to see you again on Saturday, October 22, 2016 for Parents Day at NYU. Over breakfast, you’ll hear more about our academic programs, meet our distinguished faculty, and get an update on your son or daughter’s curriculum. We’ll send you more details as the date approaches.

Ways to Stay in Touch

College is a time of mixed emotions for both parents and children, a time of wanting to send a text message and also realizing it’s probably better to give your child some space. At NYU Steinhardt, we recognize that you might want to stay connected to the college experience and so we happily invite you to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram and Twitter.

And if you do have any questions or concerns, please contact our Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Patricia Carey, by email at patricia.carey@nyu.edu or by phone at 212-998-5065.

Wishing you all the best as you count down to the first day of college,

Dominic Brewer
Gale and Ira Drukier Dean
