On Monday, December 15th, the New York University community lost a colleague, mentor, and dear friend.
Vivian Cipolla, age unknown, as a true lady would never reveal her age, dedicated more than 50 years of service to NYU when she retired just a few years ago. Not only was she an ambassador for NYU, but indeed, she was also an ambassador for higher education around the world. Read More
Today the NYU Office of Undergraduate Admissions celebrated the start of the holiday season, and our Early Decision I notification day, with our Third Annual Heritage Potluck. Taking a short break from processing and reviewing applications and responding to student inquiries, we shared a meal meant to celebrate our cultural heritages and our mutual love of all things delicious. From Poland to Puerto Rico to Pakistan, the dishes came from around the world!
I am happy to announce a new financial aid initiative for New York undocumented applicants. Undocumented students who are currently applying to begin their undergraduate studies at NYU as freshmen for the Fall of 2015 are now eligible to receive scholarship aid. Read More

Whenever I meet with prospective students who want to study business, I’m excited to talk with them about the opportunities at our Stern School of Business.

Stern also gives students a variety of ways to study business while being in and of the great cities of the world — one of which is through its distinctive Business and Political Economy (BPE) degree program.
We’re back in the office after a few days off and are excited to complete our review of Early Decision I applications. The Early Decision II and Regular Decision deadlines are just around the corner though and we know you’re all busy working hard getting ready to hit the submit button (thanks to some great tips from Becca)!
We are just about a month away from the Early Decision II and Regular Decision application deadline. Hopefully you are just putting the finishing touches on your application and getting ready to click ‘submit’! Now that the application deadline countdown has begun, my colleagues and I have come up with a list of the top five things you shouldn’t do as you complete your application. Read More
Shawn Abbott, NYU’s Dean of Admissions, posted in early October on the interpretation of college rankings, discussing the methodologies used to create such lists. While NYU appears on many, from the Times World University Ranking to Surf Magazine’s top 10 colleges for surfers, it is time to discuss two recent rankings, both of which place NYU in the number one spot!
