You’re here! You made the big decision to leave the college you were attending, and you’re now at your dream school – NYU Steinhardt. But even though you’ve been to college before, you may still feel overwhelmed by some things that are new to you at NYU.

You are invited! Join us for dinner and conversation about life at NYU, NYC, and beyond.

You’re here! You’re the first in your family to go to college, and that is pretty awesome.

You’ve gotten started with typical college things—taking interesting classes, finding friends who you can have fun with, and the all-you-can-eat dessert in the dining halls. But as a first generation student, you may still feel overwhelmed by some things that are new to you and your family.

Know that you’re not alone. In fact, about 25% of Steinhardt students are the first in their family to receive a degree.  NYU Steinhardt’s Office of Student Affairs is enthusiastic about supporting students who may identify with being less familiar with the college-going experience and would like greater support in navigating university life.

You are invited! Join us for dinner and conversation about life at NYU, NYC, and beyond.
