NYU Steinhardt
New Undergraduate Experience

Welcome to the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development
The NYU Steinhardt New Undergraduate Experience is comprised of three key components to welcome you to our vibrant community and to help you to get connected, to be involved, and to stay informed.

Get Connected
Online Orientation, mid May-August 2015

  • Get to know your academic adviser, current students, and peers
  • Learn about our history, mission, and values
  • Understand your major and degree requirements
  • Create and register your first semester schedule
  • Discover services and activities to help you grow and develop
  • Share what you’ve learned with your family to keep them connected

Be Involved
NYU Welcome Week, August 29 - September 4, 2015
Join us for the Dean’s Welcome in Skirball, and meet in person with your academic adviser and orientation leaders. You’ll attend the Presidential Welcome and the Reality Show, and have many opportunities to explore your new home in NYC. Sponsored by NYU Steinhardt and the University community, you’ll be able to participate in workshops, activities, and service-learning projects with peers from all NYU schools.

Stay Informed
New Student Seminar (SAHS-UE.1), Fall 2015
In this course, you begin to explore your role as a student in this diverse and global academic community. New Student Seminar also introduces you to your program of study as an aspiring professional in your chosen field. The New Student Reading, a literary work that raises questions important to this process of exploration, will be assigned this summer. Mid- semester, join us at our New Student Convocation, hosted by the Dean of NYU Steinhardt to discuss themes connected to our reading and your experiences as a new student. New Student Seminar is a required first semester course for new undergraduate students.
