A glimpse into what will be happening on campus this week.

Mar 4, 2018

Treat Yo Self!
REACH will be hosting a ‘Treat Yo Self’ event at the library terrace from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on March 5. There will be snacks, music and different self-care activities such as DIY mandalas and adult coloring papers. The event is aimed to encourage students to take some time off their day to treat themselves by indulging in various self-care sessions. “Release some stress, renovate some energy: study breaks are the most important part of midterm preparation,” said Lucas Davidenco, Class of 2021, one of the REACH members in charge of organizing the event.
Remembering Baba Zayed
On March 4, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., NYU Abu Dhabi Cultural Engagement interns are hosting Zayed’s Day in order to commemorate the late Sheikh Zayed. The event will take place at the Baraha and provide a space for students to engage in conversations about the legacy and influence the late Sheikh left on the UAE and the world.
