NYU SPS Welcome and Orientation - Fall 2021

Welcome to NYU SPS. Orientation and onboarding events provide important introductions to the NYU SPS student experience. Thoughtfully curated to ensure that you have all the information you need, events will serve to guide and ground you. Attending is your first opportunity to meet fellow students, staff, and faculty. Participating is like getting a copy of the treasure map with the path clearly indicated.  Some sessions are mandatory, while others are optional—but all have been created to ensure a seamless transition and to quickly instill a sense of belonging in this very special community. Most of our on-boarding and orientation events will be in person; and, given that some students are unable to make it to campus this fall. many will be recorded.  Sessions and links will be posted for easy access at times convenient for all.
