Now that finals are upon us and it’s almost officially summer (or at least according to the academic calendar), blog posts will be reduced to every other week leading up to your departure in August. The posts might be less frequent, but they will still be full of important information about things like upcoming deadlines, academic updates, and housing placements so make sure you stay on top of them!
Our office will stay open all summer during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EDT. If I’m going to be out of the office for any extended period of time (we take vacations too!) I’ll give you fair warning in advance, but you can always call the main line for help: +1 212-998-4433.
The Inter-Residence Hall Council (IRHC) is the umbrella organization for all hall councils, student organizations within each residence hall at NYU. The IRHC promotes community building, service and advocacy for the 12,000 residents on campus as well as the NYU community at large.
IRHC is comprised of several committees, which include:
- Events: designs and executes programs for the residential and greater NYU community.
- Co-sponsorship: provides monetary support for programs benefiting the NYU community.
- Service: provides service opportunities to the NYU community.
- Communications: oversees marketing and social media.
- Advocacy: seeks to improve the residential experience for NYU residents.
- Conference: serves as the liaison with the NACURH (NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY RESIDENCE HALLS).
Starting this week we will feature different ways to can start to think about how you can get involved on the NY campus.
There are ways ways to get involved with team sports in New York at NYU: Varsity, Intramural, and Club sports. Each category has different levels of commitment and expectations of skill levels, but if you enjoy competing on a team there will be an option for you. To get started, explore NYU’s Athletics website and learn more about sports offerings.
Remember, NYU also has athletic facilities open to students, including the new 404 Fitness Center.
We’re now accepting applications for the Global GoPro Video Project. This project is all about encouraging students to document their amazing experiences abroad. We also want your help to create authentic and engaging videos to inspire the next generation of study away students.
If you’re selected for the project you will receive a GoPro Hero 4 Silver which is yours to keep and use how you see fit, no strings attached. But to make the next great study abroad video we’re asking participants to donate footage from their semester away for our global video assistants to edit into exciting representations of the NYU study away experience. Camera recipients also have the option of editing the footage themselves and sharing the videos with Global Programs.
This is a fun opportunity for any student interested in visual storytelling and social media. Fill out the Global GoPro Video Project application today for your chance to start your semester away with a brand new GoPro camera.
Deadline: May 4
Notification: Week of May 9
To help sophomores and juniors prepare for their time abroad in the fall 2017, students are required to attend a Pre-Departure Orientation hosted by the NYU Shanghai Office of Global Affairs and Office of Student Life. Students have received a separate email invitation for their designated Pre-Departure Orientation session. Please refer to the Global Week Schedule for the date and time of the session for your specific site.
If you wish to take an ITP course this fall, the ITP Exchange site has course offerings for Fall 2017 now available. Please follow the below instructions for enrollment as you cannot register through Albert:
Non-majors interested in obtaining enrollment permissions should go to the Tisch Course Exchange site to mark their preferences for Fall 2017 (link below). After ITP concludes its internal registration process in late April, we will begin to offer seats to non-majors starting in early May on a case-by-case basis. You will be notified of your enrollment status via email.
If you have any questions or concerns about Fall 2017 non-major registration, or using the Exchange site, please feel free to contact me by email or by phone at (212) 998-1881. For your reference, I am also attaching a guide which explains how to use the Exchange site. Thank you for your patience during this time and for your interest in taking classes at ITP.
Please review the following important information and resources in advance of course registration week:
- Registering for Courses – The registering for courses page provides instructions on how to register for Study Away courses in Albert, how to find your appointment time, and answers to other registration FAQs.
- Use the “Shopping Cart” & “Validate” tools in Albert to plan your schedule. Validating your courses now can help you identify any issues with prerequisites and restrictions ahead of time and get assistance BEFORE registration begins. If you are unable to validate one of your courses email email@example.com assistance. You can review registration guides for step-by-step instructions on how to validate, add, drop, swap and more! (Some days/times, prerequisites and notes have changed since the course search went live so we recommend validating again if you have not done so recently.)
- Academic Policies and Procedures for Study Away – This page contains important information regarding academic policies including the Attendance Policy, Language Course Requirement, Procedures for declaring pass/fail, etc
- Course Evaluation Results – Course evaluation results for study away courses are available to students with an active netID.
Phase 2 Room Selection ends on Friday, April 7th.
If you have not done so already, please access the Housing Portal
now and select your space for the 2017-2018 Academic Year.
Remember — if you have already selected a space but are unhappy with your selection you can submit a Post Selection Room Change Request form now through the same housing portal. This form is only available until May 15th and requests are reviewed over the summer. Please note that completing the form does not guarantee that a change will be offered as this is completely based on availability and what you include on your form. We encourage students to be as flexible as possible regarding building choices and room types when completing the form.
As a reminder, the housing space you choose is your assignment for the entire academic year. If you are not studying in New York for Spring 2018, you will receive instructions in November on how to cancel your Spring in New York housing without a fee. If you are continuing in New York, you will stay in the same space for both semesters. If your roommates are leaving for the spring there will be a process for new incoming spring students to request any vacant spaces in your room/suite. That information will be released in November.
As always, if you have further questions about housing in New York you may email Hasanthi Piyasena at firstname.lastname@example.org
