What has been going on in NYU Shanghai this week?

Oct 14, 2017

Global Week
First up this week, the Office of Global Affairs is hosting Global Week. The week serves as an opportunity for freshmen and sophomores to learn more about their study away options. Each day, different sites host information sessions with student panels. In addition, Global Affairs is preparing sessions to address the logistics of study away, including financial planning and mobility. As sophomores begin preparing for the required semester abroad often taken in junior year, Global Week helps students understand their options and gets them excited for the opportunities to come.
Potential NYU Shanghai Location Change
With NYU Shanghai continuing to expand its student body, the school itself will have to expand at some point as well. Recently, a group of students met with the administration to discuss the possibility of NYU Shanghai moving for the third time, away from its Century Avenue address to somewhere else in the city. Where exactly? As the discussion is still very early, potential options remain unclear. However, it’s definitely something On Century Avenue will be be covering more thoroughly. Students are eager to know where the future of the school lies.
