Does it feel real yet? Has the shock set in, or the relief? Does it feel good? Scary? You did so much to get to this point, and worked so hard. A lot of cups of coffee — and a lot of cups of other drinks — went into getting here. A lot of borrowing friends’ staplers, practicing solos in ...

Dear Marita, It’s officially been four years of NYU. Four years of living in four different neighborhoods of New York City. From your freshman year floormates that became your family away from home, to the sleepless nights at the newspaper, you have had an unforgettable experience. It’s bound ...

NYU and New York City have been in the cards for me since my early teenage years. I fell in love with both during my very first visit to the city when I was 14-years-old.

During my first week at NYU, I walked into the WSN office for an open house, spoke with the Beauty and Style Editor and a week later, attended my first runway show at my first New York Fashion Week. I was pretty confident I would end up in the fashion industry — I wasn’t going to be one of those people...

As trite as it may be to point out, New York is always changing — for the better, for the worse and often for the indistinguishable. I feel that my past four years have been the same. I came to NYU after completing a pre-college program at Harvard, where I had the most magical summer of my life with ...

You are here. You are at the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. For the past four years, you have been walking the streets of Greenwich Village and writing the story of your college life. And for all the time you have spent at NYU, the word “student” does not even begin to encompass...

At this point, you are pretty much done. You’re finishing up your finals, not that they make a big difference anymore. There’s no more registering for classes on Albert. There’s no more panicking when your NYUCard isn’t in your pocket or your bag. But, at the same time, there’s no more walking...

Through the years of classes, student events and late-night study sessions, it may be difficult to remember the little moments of one’s time at NYU. But Corey Blay, a master’s student pursuing degrees in the Stern School of Business and the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, embodies self-reflection and learning through first-hand experiences in education....
