NYU SPS Welcome and Orientation - Spring 2023

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 for Fall 2022; and for online/remote students, many of these events will be recorded or live streamed.

The community at SPS is great! There are a lot of ways for getting involved and meeting people.  SPS has a small school feeling but is also part of a large university, so you can take advantage of both.
